Actor SEAN BEAN is struggling on the Indian set of his new TV series SHARPE'S CHALLENGE after suffering a bout of food poisoning.
The LORD OF THE RINGS star was among a number of cast and crew members to be struck down with the notorious 'Delhi belly' while shooting the period war drama - a reprisal of the character that made him a household name.
Bean - who is playing MAJOR RICHARD SHARPE for the first time in eight years - says, "Being ill was unpleasant but everyone on set has had it. I'm all right now."
He adds of the other difficulties of filming on the remote location, "The roads are crazy, and it takes some getting used to. So does seeing camels on the dual carriageways - it certainly keeps the speed down. It's like a film set, there are cows, dogs and cattle everywhere." (IG/WNSEXS/SH)
