The popular former Blue Peter presenter John Noakes is "doing as well as to be expected", according to his agent.

The 81-year-old, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, went missing yesterday from his home in Andratx, Majorca, on the hottest day of the year so far.

He was later found and taken to hospital suffering from dehydration.

His agent said: "His wife Vicky has said that he is doing as well as to be expected. John did not suffer any injury but he is being monitored for the next 2-3 days by his doctor because of his age and as a result of the sun and hot weather yesterday."


Foo Fighters back 2 weeks after Dave Grohl breaks leg

The Foo Fighters are to start touring again, a scant two weeks after lead singer Dave Grohl fell off stage in Sweden and broke his leg.

Grohl famously played on through the pain, with a paramedic crouched in front of him holding his leg in place until a cast could arrive from hospital - but the band were forced to cancel European tour dates - including a headline slot at Glastonbury - on doctor's orders.

Now, however, the band has announced that they'll be back on the horse from 4 July, when they'll play a show in Washington DC. In total, they'll play 36 shows across the US and Canada - a punishing schedule for a man snapped his fibula "like an old pair of take out chopsticks".
