George Clooney is to tell TV viewers of his battles with malaria and his humanitarian work in Africa.

His publicist Stan Rosenfield said the Hollywood actor had recovered from the malaria he contracted earlier this month during a visit to Sudan - his second attack.

Clooney will discuss the condition and his aid work on Piers Morgan's CNN show.

The actor says his own experience with the disease shows how proper medication can turn "the most lethal condition in Africa" into "a bad 10 days instead of a death sentence".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
