From the ever-reliable bastion of decent journalism, The Daily Mirror:
SOAP STAR ‘POISONED’
CORRIE star Craig Charles was sent home from filming yesterday after being struck down with food poisoning.
The former Red Dwarf actor, 40, who joined the soap in June as Liverpool cabbie Lloyd Bowen, blamed a dodgy fish supper the night before.
He had been set to shoot scenes with Bruce Jones and Simon Gregson, but was too sick to continue.
A spokeswoman said: “He couldn’t do the scene and we suggested he go home and get better.”
Producers are hoping he will be back today as his illness threw the filming schedule into chaos.
