"Leslie is very strong and I’m sure he will pull through," she said. "I love him to bits and I know his millions of fans will want to wish him well for the future.

"Leslie suddenly started leaning on me and was unable to put a ticket in his coat pocket," she added. "He had terrible pains in his left arm so I stopped the bus and called an ambulance which took him to University College Hospital in Euston.

"He kept saying to me 'don’t cause a fuss' but I knew he was unwell and needed urgent medical help. From there, he was then transferred to a top neurosurgery hospital in the capital."
