English television presenter Richard Madeley has opened up about the dangers that come from spending too much time in the sun. Richard says that he once suffered from severe heatstroke and was so bad that his wife, Judy Finnigan thought that he was having a stroke.
Madeley explained to The Mirror, "I was by the pool reading on my stomach and ended up falling asleep for two-and-a-half hours. I woke at about 4pm and the back of my head was really hot. I didn’t feel good at all. I got an early night and took a chilled glass of wine to bed."
He added, "About 6am Judy woke up and I was having some sort of fit. When I awoke I’d really chewed my tongue and it looked like the edge of an apple pie and I realised, ‘Oh f***, this is heatstroke and dehydration’. For a few days afterwards, I struggled to remember passwords for the computer.
It has been a while now since we have seen Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan on our television screens, after they were axed from the cable show in 2009, following som poor ratings. However, the couple admit that they are expecting to return to screens for the 25th Anniversary of the television show This Morning.
