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.

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

It will be chaired by Richard Bacon.
