Bobby Davro is recovering from a minor stroke after falling ill and collapsing during a live show in Surrey last week.
The actor and comedian had cancelled all public appearances following his collapse at the Coulsdon Comedy club, South London, last Thursday night.
Bobby had just come off stage following a standing ovation at the sell-out gig before he suffered what he has described as a ‘funny turn’.
A source told The Sun: ‘His condition has greatly improved and he’s now resting at home. Clearly he’s feeling much better as Bobby described his proximity to the hospital and the excellent care he received there as ‘a real stroke of luck’.’
It’s been reported that the star has been told to rest for two weeks and will be back on stage on February 4.

A representative for Bobby has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
Davro, 65, had returned to work the day after fiancée Vicky Wright died following a short battle with pancreatic cancer aged 63 last May.
Davro was left devastated when his partner – the daughter of legendary late England captain Billy Wright and Beverley Sisters singer Joy Beverley – passed away on May 4.
The light entertainer later shared a message expressing his heartache over Vicky’s passing, which he described as ‘devastating’.
He wrote: ‘It’s been just over a week since my beautiful @vickywright5459 left this world and its only now I feel strong enough to share my feelings.
‘I want to thank everyone for their support and expressions of love and kindness you have shown me and Vicky’s family and loved ones…
‘To think we will never hear her voice to hear laughter look into her beautiful eyes see her smile to hold her and to kiss her is devastating and so incredibly painful.
‘She will be in my thoughts and in my heart forever. She was my Schluffe and I loved her and always will.’
Davro then shared a photo of Vicky and wrote: ‘I will miss you so very much and I will love you forever. RIP my beautiful Schluffe. No more pain darling. No more pain.’

Horrible: Vicky was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year – the same form of cancer her father Billy Wright, a footballing icon for Wolverhampton Wanderers and England, died from
Davro went back to work gigging just one day after his beloved fiancée Vicky passed away
He went back to work gigging just one day after Vicky died – as he vowed to perform through the pain so not to disappoint his fans who had bought tickets to see him perform.
Despite his grief, Davro stepped on stage at the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne on May 5 to perform four shows for his friend Jim Davidson’s Ustreme online comedy channel.
Davidson took to his YouTube channel to confirm Bobby’s appearance and praised the fellow showbiz legend for being a ‘trooper’ who knows the show must go on.
The former Big Break presenter said: ‘We have to say goodbye Vicky Wright. It’s a sad old day. I’m down here in Wimborne at the Tivoli Theatre on the set of Ustream’s Left, Right and Centre, the award-winning panel show and I’m sitting in Miles Crawford’s seat and we’re all a little bit quiet today.

‘Not only because we miss our friend Vicky Wright but because in 15 minutes her fiancé Bobby Davro will be turning up, he knows he’s committed to appearing on these shows.
‘He didn’t come yesterday, obviously, and I sat in and Robert Hart sat in, but Bobby – the old trooper – he’s brushed away the tears and he’s back today to record four shows here at the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne.
‘There are tickets on sale, we’ve got two shows this afternoon and two shows from 7:30 and we’re all a little bit down thinking about Vicky.’
Davro had previously discussed Vicky’s cancer fight, admitting that it had been ‘horrific and extremely painful’ to see the love of his life get so sick.
He said: ‘To see someone as beautiful as her with this illness is horrific. It’s so sad. It’s extremely, extremely, extremely painful…
‘My best advice for someone in a similar position is that laughter is the best medicine.
‘I always remember this quote: ‘Don’t let the world change your smile – get your smile to change the world.’

The comedian also admitted he was ‘drinking, smoking and not looking after myself’ as he watched his fiancée lose her battle with cancer.
Davro added he had been suffering extreme ‘stress’ since Vicky was diagnosed with the disease.
He spoke in a podcast called Eyes And Teeth hosted by the comedy ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, recorded a few days before Vicky’s death.
‘I’m drinking, I’m smoking, I’m not looking after myself,’ he said. ‘I have a little bit of grief in my life – my lovely fiancée has got cancer unfortunately and it has brought a lot of stress.’
He added: ‘I haven’t done a lot of social networking because obviously I’ve had a few private issues with my fiancée and it’s been difficult.
‘So I haven’t really had a chance to do a lot of social networking but I’m going to try and get someone in to help me so I can get it out there.’
Davro had revealed his partner’s pancreatic cancer diagnosis to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper in April, days before Vicky’s death was confirmed by her daughter, Kelly.
She wrote: ‘Hello everyone… Some incredibly devastating news to share…
‘My wonderful mum Vicky has sadly passed away this morning. I wanted to use this platform to let you all know, as I know how much she valued all your love and support in so many ways.’
Davro proposed to Vicky in 2022 after 12 years of dating on and off.
Her father Billy Wright, who spent his entire footballing career with Wolverhampton Wanderers, died from the same form of cancer in 1994.
She had performed as a singer and actress, following in the footsteps of her mother Joy Beverley, one third of the Beverley Sisters.
Vicky also took the stage to perform a one-woman show about her father called the Billy Wright Story.
