What Illness Does Paul Merton Have? Health Problem And Sickness
Due to sickness, Paul Merton has withdrawn from the episode of Have I Got News For You. A renal illness has struck the comedian and team captain, 51. Frank Skinner, a stand-up comedian, will take his position on the topical panel program.
"Paul enjoyed filming the program and fought very hard not to take the day off," a source told The Sun.
"Although it was an only a mild infection, he was unable to tape the show due to his illness. Thankfully, Frank stepped in, allowing Paul to stay at home and relax."
Merton left the program during the eleventh season in 1996 but returned later, stating that it had been given a "shot in the arm" while he was gone.
Critics, other comedians, and audiences have named him among Britain's finest comedians. He's also a member of the Comedy Store's Comedy Store Players.
