I'm sorry to report

Eddie Mair | 11:54 UK time, Monday, 20 August 2007

that my colleague from Broadcasting House, Paddy O'Connell was apparently suffering from a sore throat yesterday. And a breathing problem.

    From anyone else, I'd think that in poor taste, Mr Muir.

    Perhaps a gargle with some warm brandy would help Mr O'Connell, as it seems to have other presenters with sore throats...

    He sounded okay on the air to me!

    Probably getting ready to to pull a sicky!

    That programme seems to attract the non-trustworthy types - remember that other presenter that was pinching all the staples etc !

    My SO has soldiered bravely through the weekend's damp camping and latenight musicmaking with what sound like identical symptoms to Paddy's.

    You never see them in the same room, do you...?
