Sad news from the set of The Bill, where actor Jeff Stewart has apparently slashed his wrists.

Horrible stuff, but proof that what goes on behind the scenes there is clearly more dramatic and compelling than the nonsense they spew out of our telly boxes.

The Beeb are saying that a refusal to renew his contract was the reason behind the self harm. Jeff, mate, chin up for God's sake, it's The Bill, not Life On Mars or something.
