Search for stand-in as Jonathan Ross suffers swine-flu

Monday February 1, 2010

The BBC is currently searching for someone to temporarily replace Jonathan Ross, who has been struck down by swine flu.

The controversial host was forced to stand down from his Saturday radio show at the weekend after revealing his poorly state.

Bosses fear he may not recover in time to present his weekly chat show, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, and are currently searching for cover.

Likely candidates include Chris Evans, Adrian Chiles and Paul O'Grady.

Meanwhile, 49-year-old Jonathan has been prescribed with Tamiflu.

"I've caught flu off the children. Feel ghastly," he posted on his Twitter page.
