He Tweeted to his followers that it was his "first trip inside an Ambulance & with siren wailing. Hope it is the last. LoL" but reassured everyone by saying "Hi. In hospital attached to a few wires feeling tired but am sure I will be discharged tomorrow fit & well (fit as a pensioner can be anyway)."

The BBC reports that after tests it was discerned the 63-year-old had in fact not had a heart attack. The Telegraph published a statement from the Bannatyne Group's spokesperson, who said "Everyone at the company is very concerned and upset, but we know that Duncan is a very strong person and we are confident he will make a full recovery."

Bannatyne is now on his way home and well enough to be promoting a book that he dubs 'even better than mine'. ContactMusic wishes Mr Bannatyne a swift recovery. Perhaps a trip to one of his spas is in order!
