Did Jamie Dornan Suffer Heart Attack From Vaccine?!

Did Jamie Dornan recently suffer a heart attack from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : Jamie Dornan Suffered Heart Attack From Vaccine!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which suggests Irish actor Jamie Dornan recently suffered heart attack symptoms that was likely caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, but is instead being blamed on caterpillars by the media!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is (intentionally?) long and confusing. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Jamie Dornan Did Not Suffer Heart Attack From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Two Friends Were Hospitalised At The Same Time

I should start by pointing out that it wasn’t just Jamie Dornan who was hospitalised in Portugal. His friend, Gordon Smart, was hospitalised at the same time!

What do you think are the odds of two friends suffering a heart attack from their COVID-19 vaccinations at the same time? Of course, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence that their hospitalisations were due to COVID-19 vaccines.

Perhaps that’s why the long article curiously left out Jamie Dornan’s friend who was hospitalised at the same time! It would have introduced too many inconvenient questions, wouldn’t it?

Fact #2 : Jamie Dornan Did Not Suffer A Heart Attack

The People’s Voice article suggested that Jamie Dornan suffered heart attack symptoms, and is the “latest young and healthy person to be struck down with a bizarre health ailment”. Well, that’s not really true.

Sometime in March 2023, Jamie Dornan went on a golf trip in Portugal with three friends – one of whom was Scottish broadcaster Gordon Smart.

As Gordon Smart recounted the story on a BBC comedy podcast, he (not Jamie Dornan) started feeling some “tingling” in his “left hand” and “left arm”, which he thought was “normally the sign of the start of a heart attack”.

It was Gordon Smart who was taken to the local hospital, where his heart beat was measured at 210 beats per minute (tachycardia). It was at the hospital where he saw Jamie Dornan as well. According to Smart, Jamie Dornan was hospitalised soon after him, after his limbs went numb:

There [Dornan] was with all this stuff attached to this chair saying, ‘Gordon, about 20 minutes after you left, my left arm went numb, my left leg went numb, my right leg went numb. And I found myself in the back of an ambulance.

Gordon Smart never said that Jamie Dornan suffered a heart attack. In fact, Gordon never said he suffered a heart attack either. He only “thought” the tingling sensation he experienced might be early symptoms of a heart attack.

Fact #3 : Hospitalisation Claim Was Refuted

Jamie Dornan himself never spoke about his hospitalisation in Portugal. In fact, a source close to Dornan refuted Gordon Smart’s story:

He never went into the hospital — he even played a game of golf the next day and won.

Fact #4 : It Was Gordon Smart Who Mentioned Caterpillars

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the mainstream media came up with the story that Jamie Dornan’s health scare was caused by toxic caterpillars. That’s not true either.

It was Gordon Smart (again) who mentioned in the BBC comedy podcast that their health scare was likely caused by the pine processionary caterpillars. He said that he received a “phone call from the doctor” a week after the golf trip, to ask if the group came in contact with caterpillars on the golf course.

The doctor also sent him a local news story about processionary caterpillars, which have thousands of tiny hairs that have an irritating protein called thaumetopoei, which can cause rashes and allergic reactions.

It turns out that there are caterpillars on golf courses in the south of Portugal that have been killing people’s dogs and giving men in their 40s heart attacks. It turns out we brushed up against processionary caterpillars and had been very lucky to come out of that one alive.

So there’s my story. The good news is it wasn’t a caffeine overdose, it wasn’t a hangover. It was a poisonous, toxic caterpillar.

Even though Gordon Smart suggested that the caterpillars might cause heart attacks, the truth is – pine processionary caterpillars do not cause heart attacks. They can cause severe rashes, and allergic reactions, but not heart attacks.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
