Former Dollar singer David Van Day has had a ''stent fitted'' following his cardiac arrest and is recovering at hospital, his spokesman has confirmed.
David Van Day has had a ''stent fitted'' following his heart attack.
The 59-year-old former Dollar singer underwent the procedure after he experienced a cardiac arrest following three days of chest pains.
David - who is married to Sue Moxley - underwent the procedure to open a blocked artery at London's St Bartholomew's Hospital and is doing well, his spokesman has confirmed.
The operation involves a short wire-mesh tube being inserted into the artery via a catheter and the stent is left in place permanently to allow blood to flow through the artery freely.
His spokesman also revealed he ''should be leaving for home soon'' where he will need to spend a month recuperating from the operation.
David - who came fourth when he appeared on reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2008 - has been inundated with get well soon messages from his friends and fans on Twitter since news of his health scare broke and he is very grateful for the well-wishes.
He tweeted: ''Thanks for all the kind and positive messages I've had today. I'm hoping to make a speedy recovery.''
The singer - who was one half of 'Mirror Mirror' hitmakers Dollar with Canadian-born Thereza Bazar - also used his social media account to praise all the staff at St Bartholomew's Hospital and at Queen's Hospital in Romford, Essex, South East England where he was first taken by his spouse Sue to be assessed for chest pains.
He tweeted: ''Feeling a lot better just got to take it easy for a while Queens & Barts staff fantastic (sic)''
