Richard Bacon Reveals Double Pneumonia Diagnosis


Richard Bacon

Radio and TV presenter Richard Bacon has revealed that he’s been diagnosed with double pneumonia, after he was rushed to hospital following a flight.

The 42 year old had to endure a mad dash to Lewisham A&E in London after touching down from a transatlantic flight. There, doctors diagnosed him with a dangerous lung inflammation condition, which can be caused by a virus or bacteria, and causes the air sacs to fill with pus.

“Thank God I got ill in Britain (actually on the way to Britain, was taken off the plane in a wheelchair). F**k all the ideology driven politicians who’ve messed up America’s healthcare system. Viva the NHS. Happy 70th. (sic),” he tweeted, alongside a picture of himself hooked up to hospital machinery on Instagram and Twitter.

"Poverty Porn" Benefits Steet Residents To Speak Out In Live TV Debate


Richard Bacon Channel 4

Channel 4’s serialised documentary Benefits Street has been criticised from many corners. Some have been moved to condemn those featured in the show, while others have labelled Channel 4 and Love Productions as exploitative and irresponsible for putting the residents of James Turner Street into the public eye.

Benefits StreetSam and Becky were widely criticised for their role in supposed benefits fraud

But the residents of the street – who, despite many wishing death upon them and calling hem scum, scroungers and benefits cheats – are the innocent part in all this, and they’ll have the chance to speak their minds on a live debate to be aired after the final show on February 10th. It will be chaired by Richard Bacon.
