Richard Wilson calls off Meldrew shows after heart attack
One Foot In The Grave star Richard Wilson has cancelled his Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows after suffering a heart attack.
The Scottish actor (80) had a cardiac arrest on Wednesday afternoon and is in a stable condition in hospital, his agent said.
Wilson was due to resurrect his cantankerous Victor Meldrew character at the festival in a one-man production called I Don't Believe It!
The Assembly Rooms, where he was due to perform, shared a statement from his agent, saying: "Due to ill health, Richard Wilson has taken the decision to take some time out.
"He is sorry to have to disappoint those hoping to see him in Edinburgh."
