This Morning star Matthew Wright has revealed he was rushed to hospital after suffering pain in his neck.

The LBC presenter, 59, was all boxed up and ready to move house just last night but his plans were stalled after he was rushed to hospital this morning.

Happily sharing a picture of himself smiling alongside towers of cardboard before being struck by ‘the worst pain’, he wrote: ‘Packing all done, two days non stop but I’m ready to go!

‘Thought I’d be more emotional after 23 years here but no which means it really is time to say goodbye and go the full Worzel after so many years dithering. A new dawn for me tomorrow.’

But just hours later this morning Matthew took to social media and revealed to followers he had been taken to hospital by paramedics.

‘Turns out my bad neck is actually quite bad,’ he said. ‘Indebted to paramedics Steph and Miko for getting me to hospital and dealing with worst of pain. Doesn’t look like I’ll be moving house today.’

He continued: ‘2 shots of morphine so far, one diazepam, 1000mg paracetamol and it’s not even 7am #BreakfastOfChampions.’

Matthew first complained about his neck pain at the weekend, as he took to Twitter on Sunday and said: ‘Feel a middle aged mess today – neck hurts, nose blocked, ragged voice – but we smile on!!’

On Saturday he apologised for his voice while broadcasting, and added: ‘Rest of me feels fine. It’s not covid either…’

Later that day he took to social media again to say he was ‘still ill’ but ‘merry’ thanks to some birthday whisky.

He added: ‘Neck hurts from falling asleep like crumpled tissue b4 ENG/SWI…still moving house and trying not to panic….’
