Rocky Horror Picture Show star Tim Curry is recovering at home following a major stroke, according to reports.

The British actor, 67, who lives in Hollywood , is said to be “doing great” following his collapse.

His agent Marcia Hurwitz denied a suggestion that the actor had been left with his speech impaired by the stroke.

Shetold the Daily Mail: “Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour.”

Curry played Dr Frank-N-Furter in the cult Rocky Horror musical alongside Susan Sarandon and Meatloaf in 1975.

The actor pulled out of a 2011 Trevor Nunn production of Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead at the Chichester Festival Theatre suffering from asthma attacks and a chest infection.
