British Star Smith Recovering From Stroke

Beloved British actress LIZ SMITH is recovering from a stroke.
The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory star suffered the stroke earlier this year (09) and spent two months under doctor's care - but she's now recuperating at home in London.
She tells Britain's Daily Express, "I was in hospital for about two months and have been very gradually getting better. I get exhausted and have to take it easy."
And the 87 year old is determined to get well by next month (Jul09) - so she can receive her Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) honour from a British royal.
Smith jokes, "I'll be going in a pushchair. I don't know who will be doing the presentation but it will be a good day."
