Worry for BBC as wife is rushed to hospital for emergency surgery

Greg James has announced that he will be absent from his Radio 1 breakfast show as his wife Bella Mackie has been urgently admitted to hospital.

The 37-year-old radio DJ took to Instagram to provide an update to his fans, explaining that he needed to be by her side for emergency surgery.

Bella, the author of “How to Kill Your Family,” aged 40, and Greg exchanged vows in September 2018, following her proposal in February of the same year.

On Thursday evening, Greg posted on his Instagram Stories, sharing a message from Bella, with the caption: ‘Today hasn’t been a classic tbh.’

Accompanied by a photograph from a hospital bed, Bella expressed, ‘In the morning, I have to undergo surgery for appendicitis, and I am terrified. If you’ve had this procedure and would like to offer reassurance, that would be appreciated (only reassurance, nothing else).’
