I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Brian Conley

I'm A Celebrity star Brian Conley has thanked fans for their support after he quit the jungle.

The comic collapsed and was rushed to hospital after falling ill in the jungle, it’s been revealed.

It was announced at the top of Monday 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 Sun report today that Brian’s wife wants answers from show bosses after visiting sick Brian in hospital in Australia.

“She couldn’t believe how much he’d changed after ten days in the jungle. He looks really unwell and vulnerable,” a show source told the newspaper.

They added: “He’s lost a lot of weight and is exhausted. Doctors have prescribed lots of rest until he recovers. Anne-Marie was hugely supportive of Brian’s decision to go on the show, but now you can’t blame her wishing he hadn’t.

“She wants to know how this happened and why bosses did not intervene earlier.”

Fortunately now Brian has been discharged and his medical problems have been "resolved".

His agent issued said in a statement: "We can confirm Brian Conley has been discharged from hospital and is delighted to be back with his family recuperating.

"He would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and concern."
