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.

Sam 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.
