The Front page of Tuesday’s Daily Mirror has an exclusive story about veteran news presenter, Carol Barnes.

The paper says that Carol is fighting for her life after suffering a massive stroke.

A friend told newspapers: “We are devastated. It’s come as a tremendous shock. The doctors are doing everything, but they don’t think she will pull through.”

In a statement from her agent, Knight Ayton Management, said: “Carol Barnes is seriously ill, and is being cared for at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Her son James and close friends have asked for their privacy to be respected.”

Carol recently presented Saving Ed Mitchell on ITV1, a programme about her former colleague’s descent into alcoholism.
