Moira Stuart, 74, collapses as colleagues RUSH to her aid during Angela Rippon’s birthday party


Moira Stuart is believed to have fallen ill during her friend Angela Rippon’s birthday party and an ambulance rushed to her aid on Monday night.

The Party Was Halted

The birthday party was apparently brought to a sudden halt after the newsreader collapsed while enjoying the celebration at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London.

Moira, 74, was reportedly helped by her former colleagues including Louise Minchin and Michael Buerk, who rushed to her aid following the ‘funny turn’.

According to The Sun’s source the room was cleared for Moira, who apparently soon insisted that she was feeling fine following the ‘scary’ episode.

She Was Standing When She Fell

Staff at the hotel are said to have called for an ambulance to check Moira out ‘just in case’, after she fell while standing at the bar among the other party guests.

An onlooker said: ‘Moira took a funny turn when Angela’s party was in full swing. She had been in great spirits on the night and spent time with Angela and Lulu, who was also a guest, at the Hilton.

‘It all happened very quickly and out of nowhere, Moira, who was standing at the bar, had fallen to the floor.

‘She was looked after by Louise and Michael and an ambulance was called just in case.’
