On Monday (16 May), it was reported that the Geordie actor, who has also made appearances in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet’ and ‘Coronation Street’ throughout his career, had been taken to a Spanish hospital a month ago, when he was struck down by an unknown illness.
Over the weekend, Tim was deemed well enough to be flown home to the UK, with a representative now confirming that his condition was improving significantly.
A source had previously told The Mirror: “Tim has been in a bad way for a while and had to pull out of filming Benidorm. He was in hospital for three and a half weeks, and at one point he was fighting for his life.
His ex-wife, Denise Welch, has also offered an update on Twitter, telling fans:
Tim is probably best known for his role in ‘Benidorm’ as Les (and his alter-ego, Leslie), which he has played since joining the ITV comedy show in 2010.
