The Lancashire Evenging Post reports:
"Star Wars legend Kenny Baker is expected to be back home in Preston this weekend after being taken ill.
The 73-year-old, who played robot R2D2 in the sci-fi classic, suffered problems with his long-standing asthma condition on his way back from attending film conventions in the US city of Chicago earlier this week.
He is recovering in a private hospital in Manchester and is expected to be back at his home in Ashton-on-Ribble in the next few days.
His son Kevin, 35, said his father, who is 74 this year, was "doing okay" and relaxing in hospital after being taken ill on a plane on Wednesday and rushed to hospital when he touched down in the UK."
