Celebrity Big Brother 2014: Ill Sam Faiers leaves house for medical treatment

Sam Faiers (Celebrity Big Brother 2014)

Sam Faiers has been taken out of the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 house after falling ill.

The TOWIE star was rushed off the set in North London after an apparent allergic reaction saw her to feel sick and cause her face to swell up.

According to the always reliable Daily Star, symptoms also included "gunk pouring from her nose".

A show source told the newspaper this morning: “The poor girl looked like something from a horror movie, like an alien.

“She is so used to looking sexy and glam that she was really shaken up, and so were the other housemates."

Sam was examined by a doctor but did not go to hospital, but was monitored until the reaction subsided and provided with anti-allergy medication.

On returning to the house, Sam told the group: "This has come from my nose and spread into my face. They’ve given me a dressing too.”

It's not the first time that Sam's had contact with the 'outside world' this year having now taken part in two interviews with OK! magazine from inside the house.

In her latest chat, Sam revealed she was beginning to miss things from home.

She told the publication: “I’m also missing some home comforts – like just being able to sit on my sofa and put the telly on.

“I’m not missing my phone, to be honest, not at all. I guess I just miss the freedom of being able to walk out the front door!”

A spokesperson for Channel 5 confirmed that it had been agreed that Sam could speak to the magazine during her stay before the show had started.

Sam is one of three housemates to face eviction this week after Sunday night's latest nominations.
