Is Shaun Ley OK?
Doesn't seem to be speaking OK, jumbling his words up, having to start sentences again and keeps being caught out by camera shots changing. Really unlike him as he's usually very slick.
He's been like that for a while tbh, it's like he keeps trying to hold back sneezes or coughs and it really is grating when he does this, makes the presentation unbearable. He should just pause, do whatever is needed, then continue, instead of sounding really bad by holding it back.
And obviously with the way things are it doesn’t look good on him or BBC News if he is trying to hold back flu like symptoms. Plus like you say it’s highly irritating.
