The 'Careless Whispers' singer 'woke up' at lunchtime.

"George has woken up and he's in good spirits," the Daily Mail quoted a friend as saying.

"Doctors are very pleased with him - and he's making progress.

"He's been in terrible pain. He's had a dreadful chest infection - but he's been in good care. He's in very capable hands," the friend stated.

The concerned friend also added that Michael is in a 'very serious condition' and that he 'needed rest'.

"This is a very serious condition. It cannot be understated. George needs rest. It takes ages to recover. It is serious - but he is in good hands," the friend said.

Doctors had brought in a special bed for the star, which is used to assist breathing for patients who have suffered bad cases of pneumonia.

"George is improving. He's happy - and smiling," another friend added.
