Bucks Fizz singer Jay Aston is recovering well after a seven-hour operation to treat mouth cancer, with her husband saying there's "fight in the girl".

The 57-year-old Eurovision winner revealed that she feared she may lose her voice in June as she prepared to have surgery to remove a portion of her tongue. 

Her bandmate Cheryl Baker announced on Tuesday that Aston had undergone the surgery and was recovering in the hospital.

She posted a message from Jay Aston's husband Dave which read: "Jay is stable in ICU. Awake and responding well...

"I will be going back in the morning... she knows you're all thinking about her and is being very brave... she's in good hands and all the surgery went to plan." 

A day later, Baker posted a further update on Aston's progress from her husband.

"Jay's recovery is all looking positive," the message read. "Jay moved from intensive care on to the ward. This is much earlier than expected so goes to show the fight in the girl...

"Will keep updating but it's looking very good."

Last week, Aston went into the studio to record vocals for new music with her group The Fizz.

In recent years, Aston and her fellow Bucks Fizz stars Cheryl Baker and Mike Nolan have been performing as The Fizz, as former bandmate Bobby G has the rights to the Bucks Fizz name.
