... in the 21st Century

James Blunt got scurvy. Actual scurvy, like sailors back in the 1400s. Some might say it was deserved too – he was trying to annoy his vegan friends by only eating meat for 2 months and when he started to feel unwell, he went to a doctor who diagnosed an acute lack of vitamin C.

This was way back in his university days, so he probably has more sense now.

 

And in other showbiz news:

Normal People actually didn’t get as many complaints into RTE as you might think. In fact – although people rang Joe Duffy in their droves to voice their disgust, not one formal complaint was lodged to the BAI. A total of 4 complaints were received about RTE Does Comic Relief – specific details are not available but Dustin did cause global outrage when he interrupted Niall Horan… and we know how many fans Niall has.
