Not a joke, unfortunately. Here's the www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20966790 BBC report.

He's only 53.

And a reminder of the Stroke Awareness Foundation campaign:

You need to act FAST
Facial Weakness
Arm & Leg Weakness
Speech Problems
Time is Critical

Hope he gets better. I always enjoy his documentaries and chat shows. Read once somewhere that he gets through the day drinking gallons of coffee. Will be trimming my own intake just in case....

I enjoy his show as well.

Hopefully with him being young he´ll stand a good chance of a 100% recovery.

Oh no, I love him. Hope he makes a full recovery.

This is the first I've heard of it sad

I hope he makes a good recovery.
