Minder star's heart attack shock

Minder star Gary Webster told how he was struck down by a 'significant heart attack'

Gary Webster has told how he was struck down by a "significant heart attack".

The 47-year-old Minder star said he had "no idea" that his heart "was a ticking time bomb" until he fell ill.

He told Hello! magazine that he only went to hospital four days after he first experienced chest pains.

He said: "A senior doctor came in and said the test suggested to them that I'd had quite a significant heart attack and they were worried I was going to have another."

Webster, who is married to former Pet Rescue host Wendy Turner, underwent emergency surgery to open up a blocked artery and is now back home.

He said: "Wendy has been brilliant. She is a caring but strong person who can deal with a crisis."

Webster, who found fame when he replaced Dennis Waterman as Arthur Daley's sidekick in the TV show Minder, has also appeared in EastEnders, Hollyoaks and Family Affairs.
