Richard Bacon Reveals He Nearly Died Twice As He Battled Lung Infection In Hospital And Vows To Give Up Smoking Cannabis As He Recovers

RICHARD Bacon has revealed he was close to death and almost passed away twice after falling ill with a lung infection.

In a new interview with The Times Magazine, Richard says “the probability was that I would die” the first two nights he spent in hospital.

He also revealed the horrific experience of waking up from a medically induced coma was so traumatic, it was “the worst day of my life” and he was thrashing about “like a wild animal”.

“I remember thinking: I’ve not got enough oxygen, the room’s too hot and I’m not getting enough attention,” he says.

“I need help. I remember consciously pulling the pipes out of my neck to set the alarms off. And it worked – people came running in.”

He was quickly put back in a second coma, waking up from which Richard describes as “lovely”.
