A shrub of two halves

Have a bit of privet hedge in the garden including a couple of freestanding shrubs which we shape a bit...nothing fancy.
It's usually so robust that it's hard to keep up with however one half of a freestander seems to have been bare all summer.
Doesn't feel particularly brittle so might it recover in time or is it a gonner?
Other half looks OK. Thank you.

    My guess is honey fungus. Privet is V susceptible

    I'd agree. I think @BobTheGardener had to remove a load from his garden. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Thanks for responding. Do you know if there any tell tale signs as I can't see anything obvious?
