A further tweet from the TV star today said: "Thank you for concern. I am fine now. Thanks to the NHS staff and, on behalf of whoever did this, sorry for wasting your time and resources."

Alexa Collicott, Gloucestershire Police spokesman, said they had received a call yesterday froma man reporting that he believed his drink had been spiked whilst socialising in Stow on Friday evening.
