There was panic on social media sites when Brian Blessed's name began trending on Saturday morning, with many fearing that the actor had died.
But fear not, the big-voiced Yorkshireman is alive and kicking and getting a lot of love on Twitter for a interview he did with The Guardian that saw his name spike in the trending charts.

Had a little wobble when I saw Brian Blessed trending. Thankfully it's because he's still awesome #briansalive!

Brian Blessed Guardian interview is as Brian Blessed as can be.
"What song would you like played at your funeral?"
"I'm not going to die!"

Because Brian Blessed - the man who said he chewed through the umbilical cord and licked the face of a newborn child after delivering it in Richmond Park - has given the most Brian Blessed interview ever.
As well as declaring himself immortal, the 79-year-old recalled an embarrassing story about putting a condom on a statue at BBC Television Centre, claimed he's a fully trained cosmonaut and that he has saved a dying man on Everest.
Here are a few of the gems from his Guardian Weekend Q&A.
What is your screensaver?
A photograph of the north face of Mount Everest. I have been there three times, the last time I was only a few feet from the top but I had to rescue a man who was dying.
Which living person do you most despise, and why?
Trump. He is a fart.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
How often do you have sex?
All I'll say about sex is, I don't need that bloody blue pill.
The next thing the man who'll live forever is doing is directing his wife and daughter in a new production of Agatha Christie's The Hollow at The Mill in Reading from July 7.
