Singer Marc Almond has left intensive care after he was injured in a motorcycle crash.
Almond had emergency surgery and was treated in intensive care
He was moved to another ward on Thursday due to "the progress he has made so far", according an e-mail sent to subscribers to his website.
Almond was injured while he was riding pillion on a motorbike that collided with a car in central London last week.
"He still has a long way to go in his recovery," it states. The Soft Cell singer is in the Royal London Hospital.
"I'm sure you will all join us today in breathing a sigh of relief at this positive news," the message adds.
Almond had emergency surgery after the accident on 17 October. Fans inundated his website with messages and sent flowers, cards and gifts to the hospital.
"His family have passed on to him the overwhelming amount of good wishes which have been received and Marc is aware of all the messages of love and
support," the message states.
Gene Pitney, with whom Almond sang the chart-topping duet Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart in 1989, also sent his best wishes to the 45-year-old singer.
Soft Cell were one of the biggest pop acts of the early 1980s
Soft Cell, which Almond co-founded with musician David Ball, was one of the biggest-selling acts of the early 1980s.
Their cover of the northern soul song Tainted Love became the biggest-selling UK single of 1981 and the 10th biggest-seller ever in the US at the time.
The band's other hits included Torch, Bedsitter and Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.
After the split, Almond went on to release a series of solo albums and singles. He reunited with Ball in 2001 to play a series of Soft Cell gigs.
