Doctor Who star John Barrowman rushed to hospital
JOHN BARROWMAN has undergone emergency surgery after collapsing in ‘agony’ yesterday.
Just last week the Doctor Who star was wowing Comic Con attendees with a rendition of Copacabana while wearing a ‘totally blinged’ Tardis-themed frock at Comic Con.
But, as every time traveller knows, a lot can change in a short space of time and yesterday he was rushed to Eisenhower Medical Center in California with appendicitis.
Posting a video from his hospital bed, a croaky post-surgery John said: ‘I feel a bit like I’ve been hit by a car and I’m sore all over.’
That’s a far fry from his comments of the week before: ‘I’m so dizzy right now — I totally blinged myself out! I am the transgender TARDIS!’
But despite yesterday’s gruelling surgery, John was soon looking much better.
Three hours later he posted a photo of himself sitting up in bed wearing some Who-themed socks, captioned: ‘Got my fan made #TARDIS socks on keeping my feet warm in the hospital.’
Let’s hope the footwear has some Who-like regenerative qualities so John is back on his feet soon.
