...on Nick the Greek not making it out of hospital?

It has been noticed that all newsreaders and magazine programme presenters (the One Show, etc) have been dressing very somberley over the weekend. Men in dark suits with dark ties, women in very conservative dress rather than their usual bright colours. One theory is that they have been tipped off that a very high-status death is imminent and that nobody wants to be seen in a Hawaiian shirt if the news breaks on their watch.

There is only one I can think of...

Alternative ideas chaps?

There were rumours that he croaked late on Saturday evening as it appeared there we're tears in the eyes of Prince Charles including the sombre dress of news presenters, but nothing was announced on the news so we can only assume it was false.

If Prince Charles was upset, I'm fearing bad news was delivered and Phil may not be around with us a whole lot longer. Given his age and what's going around the hospitals at the moment, the odds aren't in his favour.

I'm hoping he can make it to his 100th Birthday in June, but it's not looking promising.
