Meat Loaf falls ill moments before live TV appearance

Meat Loaf has fallen ill just moments before he was due to appear on live TV.

The veteran rock star was due on ITV's Loose Women today (February 29) but was forced to cancel at the very last minute.

The singer was joking around backstage prior to his scheduled appearance, posing with a banana on his head.

However, host Andrea McLean soon after told viewers that he would not be able to make his appearance on the chat show. She said:

"A little bit of sad news - I'm afraid Meat Loaf has taken unwell so he's unable to join us for the end of the show...Meat Loaf, I hope you feel better soon."

Last year the singer collapsed at a live show, blaming lack of oxygen for the incident.
