MEDICAL PLIGHT Good Morning Britain star rushed to hospital for emergency surgery

 Good Morning Britain chief correspondent Richard Gaisford has revealed that he was taken to hospital and had emergency surgery.

The 51-year-old journalist thanked the NHS by sharing a photo of himself from his hospital bed yesterday afternoon.

He wrote: “The Sunday I had planned didn't happen.

“Many thanks to the incredible team @PHU_NHS for the amazing care and emergency surgery.

“The NHS is at its best.

“I realize there is untold pressure at the moment, but the service I received was first class and hugely appreciated.” Richard's followers began wishing him good health and a speedy recovery, in the hope that he would be back on TV soon.

Laura Tobin, who also works on GMB, commented: "Take care x"

While one fan wrote: "Oh my god Richard!! I really hope you're ok and get well soon!"

And someone else said: "Good luck, Richard. Hope he gets well soon." She has a huge fan following after working for more than 20 years in broadcasting, starting in 2000.

He joined GMB in 2014, having previously worked for GMTV and Daybreak.

Richard is best known for being selected to travel to Canada with Prince William and Kate Middleton on their first Royal Tour in 2011.

In 2022, Richard is forced to leave Kiev after a disturbing live report showed bomb sirens going off all around him

The audience was very worried for him as he was forced to take cover in the middle of the broadcast.

A year ago he admitted suffering a "brain freeze" after slurring his words during a report.

The correspondent said he "lost his thread" after working through the night to cover President Joe Biden's inauguration.

He began reporting about changes the new president was expected to make and then added: "And he's also going to stop people from, uh... I apologize, I completely messed up my thread." Lost from.

"I am sorry."

He received the sympathy of his colleagues in the studio in the UK as Piers Morgan told him to "go back to bed" and Susanna Reid said: "This is a momentous occasion; President Trump is out, Joe Biden is in – and Richard Gaisford needs to go and lie down!”

Richard later posted on Twitter: "Thanks for all the kind messages - you don't realize how kind people can be until you're in trouble. Brain freezes completely.

"@GMB. Will melt it down by tomorrow. Promise. X"
