Bucks Fizz’s Jay Aston applauds hospital staff who saved her from mouth cancer

Bucks Fizz’s Jay Aston has gone back to hospital to thank the team who saved her from mouth cancer.

The singer returned to the ward where she spent 10 days recuperating after a seven-hour operation to remove a section of her tongue and lymph nodes.

Cheryl Baker and Mike Nolan, both 64, joined their bandmate at Guy’s Hospital, South London, where she stayed in July.

Jay, 57, who started singing again last month, said: “I wasn’t sure I was going to see Christmas. It is quite emotional to be back and it’s lovely to see all these faces.

“For a while I wasn’t talking, I did a lot of writing on boards. I wanted to thank everyone that looked after me.”

Surgeons rebuilt her tongue with thigh tissue. They positioned the transplant incision so Jay could still do her skirt-ripping routine to Making Your Mind Up.

The group thank the hospital on their album Christmas with The Fizz. Jay, of Kent, recorded her vocals before surgery.
