Training for marathon takes it's toll on drummer...
McFly’s Harry Judd has revealed he has developed a minor heart condition as a result of his intense training for the London Marathon.
Harry revealed the news via Twitter saying: “So I’ve acquired an ectopic heartbeat through excessive exercise. It’s known as a Wandering Pacemaker commonly seen in athletes.”

An ectopic heartbeat is a variation in the heart’s rhythm which lead to extra or skipped beats. They’re very common and are usually harmless and don’t require any treatment.
The drummer went on to say: “It’s nothing to worry about but just means I have to chill out a bit.”
Harry is hoping to raise £20,000 for charity by running the marathon later this month.
