‘Bullseye’ host Jim Bowen has revealed he is struggling to walk and talk after suffering a third stroke.
The veteran TV presenter, 78, had the stroke last November, previously having two in 2011.
But while he returned to health after the first two, Jim has been left frail and fearing he’ll never work again, following the latest attack.
“I’m struggling with my speech now and I am walking with a stick,” he told The Mirror.
“I always loved walking into cafes saying, ‘Super, smashing, great’ and all that.”
Jim had forged a career as an after-dinner and corporate speaker, since darts-based game show ‘Bullseye’ ended in 1995, after a 14-year run.
He became famous for his catchphrases “You can’t beat a bit of Bully” and “Look at what you could have won” on the ITV show.
Before he suffered his third stroke, Jim was gearing up to return to the circuit after his previous health scares.
In July 2014, he told the Lancashire Telegraph he was delighted to be entertaining the public again.
