Veteran broadcaster Paul Holmes says rumours he has been given only weeks to live are ``rubbish''.
Holmes was responding to suggestions on a television blog that he has been diagnosed with terminal congenital heart failure.
The blogger, Regan wrote on throng.co.nz on Wednesday he had heard a rumour Holmes ``had been given only weeks to live''.
The website said neither TVNZ, Q&A producer Tim Watkin or Paul Holmes' wife Deborah would talk to them about it.
Regan said Holmes appeared on current affairs show Q+A ``looking and sounding rather unwell'' on Sunday.
``Paul thrives on the big interviews but this time he lacked his usual energy,'' he wrote.
However Holmes said the rumours were ``rubbish''.
``Nothing is really wrong with me,'' Holmes told The Diary in today's Herald.
Earlier this month he was re-admitted to Hawke's Bay Hospital for observation after a bladder infection.
``The prostate cancer came back a bit and gave me a bit of a worry, but that's the extent of it. I'm fine.''
