Clooney battles malaria

Piers Morgan will be feeling very pleased with himself at the moment - he's gone from tabloid joke in the UK, to taking over the US's biggest news show from Larry King. In his first week, he's found himself breaking big stories - from Oprah's suicide attempts, to 'what really happened' to Ricky Gervais during the Golden Globes. And now to cap it all off, he's just told the world that George Clooney has malaria. Poor Georgey.

According to The Daily Mail, Piers tweeted, ‘George Clooney has contracted malaria following recent trip to Sudan. Taking medication but feeling rough.’ However, George's reps attempted to play down the severity of the illness, saying, 'George is completely over the Malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January. This was his second bout with it.'

Hear that Cheryl Cole, you big wimp? Malaria's nothing to complain about, apparently...
