Good news! After a night in the intensive care unit of his local hospital it looks as though Burt Reynolds has pulled through and will be leaving the unit as soon as possible.

Earlier this week, Reynolds came down with a nasty case of the flu and although it looked like he was going to see it out from his home, things took a turn for the worse yesterday morning (Jan 25) and the screen legend was admitted to the ICU of his local Florida hospital. Although doctors remained relatively upbeat about his condition, there was always that room for doubt, that was until this morning however when his fever began to break up and things were looking good. Now, as TMZ report, the symptoms that doctors were waiting to pass have finally subsided and Reynolds is now being moved out of the ICU and into a regular wing of the hospital.

His friends and family are said to me extremely happy with his progress, considering he was in a "touch and go" state prior to his admittance into hospital. Good news for the Reynolds clan then and a clear sign that yes, Florida does have winter too. Who'd have thought it?!
