Ebola Briton's family praises care
The family of British Ebola victim William Pooley has thanked doctors fighting to save his life for the "excellent care" he is being given.
In their first words since the 29-year-old volunteer nurse was flown back to the UK last night for emergency treatment, his family paid tribute to those who orchestrated his speedy return.
And they also urged Britons to consider the thousands in West Africa afflicted by the virus, but dying in their droves because they lack adequate medical care.
They said: "We would like to express our thanks to all involved in bringing our son back to the UK.
"We have been astounded by the speed and way which the various international and UK government agencies have worked together to get Will home.
"Will is receiving excellent care at the Royal Free Hospital and we could not ask for him to be in a better place.
"We would like to thank all our family and friends for their best wishes and ask everyone to remember those in other parts of the world suffering with Ebola who do not have access to the same healthcare facilities as Will."
Maloney sorry for CBB outburst
Celebrity Big Brother star Kellie Maloney has apologised for her "aggressive" behaviour after the show's bosses issued her with a warning.
Maloney, who used to be known as Frank and managed ex-heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, said she "saw mist" during an argument with fellow housemate Leslie Jordan after he picked her for a challenge.
But the former boxing promoter was reprimanded for calling the former Will And Grace star a "little queen" and warning him that she would knock him "sparko".
The argument broke out after Jordan was asked to pick the three least entertaining celebrities.
She returned from the diary doom to apologise to Jordan begging him " Don't vote me out, I want to stay a bit longer" during today's episode of the Channel 5 show.
Sitting next to him on the sofa, Maloney began to cry as she explained her actions and Jordan urged her "not to become a freak show for entertainment".
