Paul O'Grady taken ill again

Paul O'Grady taken ill again


PAUL O'Grady has been forced to get his guest to take over his C4 show - after being taken ill once again.

The star - who has suffered two serious heart attacks in the past - was so poorly that producers had to ask Shane Richie to step in to the breach.


11th hour

Ex-EastEnder Shane had been booked as a guest for Friday's show - which was being pre-recorded today.

But he got the call from bosses asking him to host at the 11th hour.

A source said: “Paul came over feeling terrible and doctors told him to go home, he hasn't gone to the hospital, but he's under strict orders to rest."


Suffering

Only last week stunning Melanie Sykes took over for telly favourite O'Grady as he was suffering from flu.

However, when O’Grady, 52, arrived back at the show this week - filmed at ITV’s studios on London’s South Bank - he discovered he was still too sick to carry on.

Doctors insisted he leave and a show source said: “It’s all been very hair-raising for production, but we’ve managed to sort it out.


Heart attacks

“Shane is pre-recording a show that will go out on Friday, while Brian Conley will host another show. This afternoon’s show will be presented by Lorraine Kelly.

“Since his heart attacks, Paul is under strict medical supervision and will have to stay home for the rest of the week.”

During every six-month stint of his teatime show, O'Grady has to take at least a week off, which is covered by guest hosts.

Paul O'Grady taken ill again


PAUL O’GRADY needs some TLC – he’s been struck down AGAIN.

The star was hit by a virus and had to take last week off.

Now we can reveal he had to go to hospital this week for X-rays after fainting.

Paul, 52, told us: “I fainted in the shower on Monday morning.

“I was taken to the London Hospital and they X-rayed my legs, my chest and my arm.

“But it turned out just my foot had swollen so I went to work. But as soon as I sat in front of the cameras I started sweating. I was in a half daze.

“Thank God I had Wendy Richard on as a guest, she’s a mate and helped me. And Melanie Sykes has been fantastic.”


Delirious

Doctors ordered him to take the rest of the week off from his Channel 4 teatime show.

Paul added: “I feel terrible, every time I get up I’m dizzy. I’ve been delirious. I’m rattling with antibiotics.

“But I’ll be back next week — I don’t care if it’s in a wheelchair!”

Ex-EastEnder Shane Richie had been booked as a guest for tomorrow’s show, which was being pre-recorded yesterday.

Instead the actor found himself guest presenter.

A show source said: “It’s been hair-raising for production but we’ve managed to sort it out.”

Mel was Tuesday’s host and Sun columnist Lorraine Kelly stood in last night. Comic Brian Conley is in the hot seat tonight. Paul has been under medical supervision since suffering two heart attacks, the last almost two years ago.

During each six-month stint of his show he has taken a couple of weeks off. He was due a holiday in a fortnight — which he will still be taking.

That’s it Paul — get some sunshine and get well soon.
