Daniel O’Donnell is recovering in Letterkenny hospital this evening after a bizarre incident in which he was thrown out of a second floor window at the Mount Errigal hotel, allegedly by one of the hotel’s television sets.

It is thought that the incident may have been an elaborate publicity stunt that went horribly wrong. Sources close to the Donegal crooner claim he is keen to move away from his clean-cut, ‘housewives’ favourite’ image and that the incident may have been a failed attempt to rebrand himself as a controversial rock star.

It is thought that Daniel is planning the release of a note-for-note remake of the classic Ronnie James Dio album, ‘Angry Machines’, with guest appearances from Finbar Furey and Declan Nerney.
