Frankie goes to hospital....
24th Sep 2009
Inadvertently got my name in the papers today after I turned up to do my usual warm-up at The BBC for "Mock the week" on Tuesday to discover they wanted me to fill in for Frankie Boyle who had been taken ill. I had about 20 minutes to prepare for the show and had to do the warm-up aswell so as you can imagine it was all a bit stressful. I could easily have been in the next ambulance.
See how "The Sun" covered the story here: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/tv/2652226/Joke-ace-Frankie-Boyle-taken-to-hospital-with-mystery-illness.html
And see how I coped tonight at 10pm on BBC2
