DJ Gerry is laid up with winter vomit bug

LEADING DJ Gerry Ryan is expected to spend the next few days in hospital after contracting the winter vomiting bug over the weekend.

The 2FM star was taken ill on Sunday and, after becoming seriously dehydrated, was admitted to hospital.

"He's going to be out for the week," producer-in-chief Siobhan Hough confirmed yesterday. "I was talking to him about a half hour ago and he was much perkier today.

"But they're going to keep him in for a few days to run some tests and make sure there aren't any ulcers or anything like that.

"But it's the winter vomiting bug that he picked up," she said.

Gerry was put on a drip after he became dehydrated due to the bug.
