I’m A Celebrity 2012: What happened to Brian Conley? He’s quit after mystery illness
Brian Conely has quit the jungle!
The comedian has left I’m A Celebrity for medical reasons it has been revealed and insiders have reported that the star was rushed out of the camp earlier today.
He reportedly fell ill with a ‘mystery illness’ and required instant medical treatment and will not be returning for the remainder of the ITV series.
Brian has suffered a few breakdowns in camp over the past few days and Twitter users were asking last night where the light hearted and entertaining celebrity had gone, after he lost the plot with David Haye over a fiery log and berated Rosemary Shrager for admitting that she doesn’t like boxing.
It seems that the funnyman may have been struggling with the pressure of it all and it’s reported that he took ill, was rushed to the on site medics, where the decision was made that he needed to be removed from the camp immediately.
Conley has previously suffered from both alcoholism and depression and admitted that after the death of his father, he was prone to anxiety and panic attacks as well as drinking heavily.
However, he had some therapy and insisted he was back on the right path, saying:
“Now, four years on, I’m teetotal. Not drinking doesn’t bother me. The money I spent on therapy was the best couple of grand I’ve ever spent. I feel better, I get up early, I take my daughters to school.”
We can’t help but wonder if the ITV show awoke some of his past demons….
An ITV spokesman confirmed: “Brian Conley has left the jungle for medical reasons.”
