80s pop icon Hazel O’Connor was found at her home in South West France on January 9 and taken immediately to hospital, where she was found to have “bleeding on the brain”. The star was put into an induced coma for 24 hours after doctors discovered the bleed, CoventryLive reports.
Hazel, 66, became famous in the early 1980s with hit singles like Eighth Day, D-Days and Will You?
The singer starred in the 1980 film Breaking Glass, which follows the rise and fall of Kate Crowley, an angry but creative young singer and songwriter.
Hazel’s brother Neil has said his sister is thankfully showing some signs of progress, and is responding well to treatment.
Sharing a post on her Facebook, Neil said: “This is an important announcement about my darling sister, Singer, Songwriter and Actor, Hazel O’Connor.
