McFly’s Harry Judd reveals heart problem


McFly’s Harry Judd has revealed on Twitter that he’s developed a minor heart condition through training for this month’s London marathon.

Judd tweeted that he’s “acquired an ectopic heart beat through excessive exercise.”

“It’s known as a Wandering Pacemaker commonly seen in athletes….it’s really annoying!!!”

The McFly drummer added that “it’s nothing to worry about but just means I have to chill out a bit.”

The British Heart Foundation describes an ectopic heart beat as an extra or skipped heart beat but states that it is usually harmless and does not usually require treatment.

Harry Judd is running the London marathon with a group of friends for charity, and is no stranger to exercise, winning Strictly Come Dancing in 2011.
