Bill Turnbull inundated with support amid rare photo in hospital 'Can I get out of here?'

Bill Turnbull took to Twitter to upload a rare photo while at the hospital today. The former BBC Breakfast presenter, who was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer in 2017, shared a candid message in view of his 101,000 followers.

The 65-year-old could be seen with a drip in his arm as he took a selfie during his treatment.

The Classic FM DJ joked that he was unsure of when he will be released, but hoped that it would be in time for the England football match at Euro 2020.

Bill penned: “Today’s big question – can I get out of here and home in time for kickoff? Thanks for everything, @royalmarsdenNHS.”

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as social media users offered their well wishes to the presenter.

“I do yoga every day, I meditate, I watch my diet and do everything I can to stay positive.”

Bill, who is described as Wycombe Wanderers’ most famous supporter, said that living with cancer “can be a burden” – but that football has provided some valuable relief.

“When you have cancer, it’s with you all day every day,” he said.

He added that watching his favourite team kept his mind off his health.

Bill explained: “I was so absorbed in the game, so excited I completely forgot it.

“That’s what happens in games, you get swept away in the excitement of it, win, lose or draw. And that’s a wonderful relief.”

Earlier this year, Bill reunited with his former Breakfast co-host Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain.

It comes after Piers Morgan stepped down from his presenting gig in March.

Woman in hospital after kids throw rocks at her windscreen on bypass

Shona Nelson, 49, suffered a panic attack and vomiting after the mindless yobs on a bridge targeted her Peugeot 107. It happened on a busy dual-carriageway on Shona’s way home from a shopping trip in Lincoln on Tuesday evening.

The incident left eight marks on the glass.

Speaking to Lincolnshire Live, the mum of two said: “It [the car] looks like a shotgun has shot it.

“It shocked me as obviously I didn’t expect to drive under the bridge and have that happen to me.

“I was very lucky when I look back and see it.

“A lot of my friends have commented that I was very lucky that nothing serious happened and that I didn’t crash my car.

“I think I was so shocked at what happened. I remember screaming and thinking oh my god, what has hit my car.

“We saw the rocks on the road and we realised children had been seen running away from the bridge.”

Shona, a legal secretary, completed her three-mile journey to her home in Cherry Willingham, Lincolnshire.

But she began hyper ventilating and called for an ambulance.

She added: “They had to call an ambulance out because I was so bad they had to admit me to A+E.

“I had to be blue lighted because they thought at first I had a bleed on my brain because I was that bad with all the tests that the paramedics did at my house.

“I had to have an emergency CT-scan.”

Shona is now back at home, having recovered in hospital.

The mum has shared details of her ordeal on social media in the hope that those responsible realise the full extent of what they did.

She said: “I think it needs to be alerted. You just can’t do this.

“It is so dangerous and I look back and I think I was so lucky.

“My sons only passed their tests a week ago. Imagine if it happened to them and they crashed, it would have been frightening.

“I am hoping the children will see what damage they have done to my car and I hope that word of mouth will make them realise they should have never have done that.”

The driver says the incident has been reported to Lincolnshire Police but the force says it is not aware of a report being made.

Dragons' Den star Deborah Meaden slams critics after sparking concern from hospital bed

Deborah Meaden, who stars on Dragons’ Den, reacted to a Twitter user after they addressed her recent injury. The 62-year-old revealed she had fractured her wrist after attempting to mount the steed of her horse without a block but admitted “she couldn’t”.

Several x rays,manipulation under painkillers with a reassuring voice in my ear and I leave with plastercast and wrist on the mend. Here with Becky and @Lowri_punc19 thankyouxxx.” [sic]

However, a social media user took aim at the entrepreneur as they questioned how the Dragon’s Den star was able to receive treatment so quickly.

The person in question wrote: “The NHS is amazing but I struggle to understand how you have had this procedure done in one day when a man recently on the news with a triple hernia which stops him working has been told it will be two years before his operation. My question is why?”

Eriksen sends public thank you message from hospital

He says he still has to go through more tests at the hospital “but I feel okay.”

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Christian Eriksen sent his first public message from the hospital on Tuesday, thanking supporters for their “sweet and amazing” well-wishes after his collapse at the European Championship.

Eriksen remains in the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest during Denmark’s game against Finland on Saturday, when he had to be resuscitated with a defibrillator on the field.

“Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family,” Eriksen wrote in a message that was shared by the Danish soccer association on Twitter.

The message was accompanied by a photo of the 29-year-old Eriksen giving a thumbs up from his hospital bed.

“I’m fine – under the circumstances,” he added. “I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay. Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark.”

Eriksen and the rest of the Denmark players have received an outpouring of support from all over the world since Saturday’s incident, including from fans of rival teams.

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand said the flood of messages shows that “football is the biggest social phenomenon in the world.”

“It’s the one thing that can unite most people in the world,” Hjulmand said at a news conference on Tuesday. “It brings friendship across nations, race, gender, everything. Football is one big family. … And we see this with all this recognition we get from people all over the world.”

Denmark, which lost to Finland 1-0 after the game was resumed, next plays Belgium on Thursday in Group B. On Monday, Eriksen’s teammates said the midfielder had told them to re-focus on the tournament.

Denmark trained for a second straight day on Tuesday after taking Sunday off to process the incident. The team was visited during the training session by Danish Crown Prince Frederik, who attended Saturday’s game and was among those to send a message of support to Eriksen.

And Hjulmand said he can tell that his players are gradually getting back the right mindset to play again.

“From the start of the training (Monday) until the end of the training, I think something happened, positively,” he said. “To get your body going again and to be on the pitch knowing that Christian is OK helped us all. … Yesterday afternoon, more and more smiles were on the faces of the players.”

But he acknowledged that returning to Parken Stadium again, where the players formed a ring around Eriksen as he was getting emergency medical treatment that saved his life, will be emotionally challenging.

“I don’t think they’re afraid to play,” Hjulmand said. “But the normal reaction to a trauma like this, you should know, it’s not only yourself. It’s also your family, maybe your kids, your wife, your parents. So the box of emotions has been opened. I think we took a big step yesterday and I think we’ll take another one today.

“Of course the time until the kickoff will be emotional, and we have to prepare ourselves for that, for entering the stadium again. Getting back to see our great fans. And up to kickoff there’ll be a lot of emotions we have to handle, and then prepare ourselves for when the referee whistles his first whistle. We will be ready to go and fight and play well and do everything for Denmark.”

England fan 'seriously injured' and rushed to hospital after falling from Wembley stand

A fan was seriously injured after falling from a stand during England‘s win over Croatia at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon, according to reports. Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the game during the second half to get the Three Lions off to a winning start in their Euro 2020 Group D opener.

The supporter in question reportedly tumbled down the stand towards seats and concrete barriers shortly after the match, attended by 22,500 fans, had kicked off at 2.00pm.

The individual was then treated by medics before they were swiftly rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

A Wembley Stadium spokesperson told the Evening Standard: “We can confirm that a spectator fell from the stands just after kick-off in the match between England and Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

“The spectator was given on-site medical attention and was then taken to hospital in a serious condition.

A fellow England supporter who witnessed the incident is quoted as saying: “I didn’t see it but spoke to some of the guys who did at half-time.

“They were traumatised. He fell from the balcony towards the seats and the concrete.

“I think it happened around kick-off otherwise I would have noticed. That bit of seating was cleared.”

Another added: “It seemed to take staff ages to get to him. One guy near us who saw the whole thing was crying his eyes out.”


The match saw England win their opening game at a European Championship for the first time in 10 attempts thanks to Sterling’s goal shortly before the hour mark.

Both sides enjoyed a decent number of chances during a tight encounter, but Southgate’s side emerged on top to finally seal revenge over Croatia, who knocked the Three Lions out of the World Cup three years ago in the semi-finals.

The England boss singled out Sterling and Kalvin Phillips for special praise after the final whistle and suggested that his team ultimately deserved to come away with the spoils.

“I think that Kalvin is a player who is so understated and who has had a fantastic start to his international career,” Southgate told the BBC after the Three Lions’ win. 

“He was immense throughout the game, as they all were.

“I’m so pleased for Raheem. He’s had this hex, if you like, at tournaments with not being able to get a goal. 

“I thought he was dangerous with his play. Right from the start, there was a throw-in inside and he was running at their defence and he looked a threat.

“He had a big influence. He’s a good player. His goalscoring record shows that we should have faith in him, especially in the last few years.

I thought that he was motivated to show [his quality]. I’m really happy for him and for everybody.”
