JEREMY Paxman has revealed he was rushed to hospital twice in two days after suffering from chest pain.

The veteran broadcaster was “minding his own business” at home when he was “seized” by the pain last month.

In October he revealed his doctor noticed he had Parkinson's disease while watching him on TV.

And now he has told of further health worries.

He feared he was having a heart attack last month and rushed to the hospital to get checked out.

Paxman told Saga Magazine: “I was minding my own business, watching a family of squirrels chasing up and down the tree outside my window when I was seized by a pain in my chest.

“I have read enough to know that heart attacks are usually accompanied by pains down the arm, though I couldn't remember which one.

“Since both seemed to be in working order, I assumed I was all right.

“Not all right enough for my partner, who, instanter, deemed I was in need of attention at the A&E department of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where I was speedily admitted and examined by quite a charming German-born cardiac specialist.

“There was a 24-hour ambulance strike that day, so I assume most of my fellow patients, like me, had been delivered to the hospital by taxi (by now it was past 10pm).

“At midnight, my partner remembered we had left the dog at home, and Derek would be needing a bit of pavement or failing that, steps at the house of the nearest high court judge. She took a taxi home.

“She emerged from the taxi to fall straight into a hole dug for gas-mains repairs, breaking her ankle.

“After she passed an uncomfortable night at home, the fracture necessitated visit number two to A&E the following day.

And when he returned home the next day, Jeremy suffered another injury at his desk and had to go back to hospital.

He explained: “That evening, I returned home to be told I was breathing oddly.

“Suddenly, with no warning, I was attacked by my chair and thrown against the leg of my desk. There was an awful lot of blood on the floor and the back of my shirt. Back to A&E.

“Sometime well after midnight, I was allowed home with my head glued together, looking all the world like a tonsured ninth-century Irish monk who had got involved in a rather vicious punch-up.”
