Awwww. It looks like Ben Fogle has taken a turn for the worse.
I admit, most of his shows are a load of pap, but even so he seemed a damn fine guy on the couple of occasions when I've met him.

He developed a rather nasty flesh eating bug after he was bitten by a sand fly while filming in the Peruvian jungle.
This is a guy who has rowed across the Atlantic and when I last met him he was training for his upcoming race across the Antarctic to the South Pole. Today he was filmed struggling and needing help to walk across the hospital car park :(

Sounds like that's a known side-effect of his treatment - they're effectively poisoning him and his body is suffering a bit, but apparently he'll be fine

chatting to part of his team (benefit of working for D.SS who did the Artic race) and apparantly they said "he'll be fine" on the previous two different treatments as well, and each time he's gotten worse.

Third time lucky tho right?

What a shame this is happening to someone who seems like a genuinely nice guy. He's got to be the most pleasant ex-reality show celeb on the planet. :)

You're just jealous that his flesh-eating bug tops your internal parasites! *lol*
