I'm A Celebrity 2012: Why did Brian Conley quit?

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Brian Conley

Why did Brian Conley leave the I'm A Celebrity 2012 jungle? It seems no one is really sure!

It was announced at the top of last night's programme that Brian had quit the show due to medical reasons.

An ITV spokesman confirmed: “Brian Conley has left the jungle for medical reasons.”

But they added that no more details would be provided "for reasons of confidentiality".

The Daily Star report that even the comic's own publicist was in the dark as to why Brian left.

Speaking before going into the jungle, Brian said he was looking forward to competing in the show.

He explained: “I am 51 and this is an experience that money cannot buy.

“This is a trip I will take to my grave and I will never forget.”

Very much looking forward to sleeping under the stars, the charming star hoped he would be able to entertain his fellow campers around the campfire.

“I really enjoy making new friends and I am sure I will throw some entertainment into the soiree!” he said.

Brian lasted 10 days in the jungle, ahead of the first public elimination on Wednesday night.
