Brian, who worked for years on stage routines for Britney Spears, left the Australian jungle campsite on Monday (30Nov15) after finishing bottom in a public vote.

He had spent just over two weeks living in the rainforest with a group of stars, who have to take part in stomach-churning challenges to win food.

After leaving the show, Brian, who has also worked with Nicole Scherzinger, admitted he found the lack of proper meals tough, saying, "I thought it would be easier. I thought I would have a protein bar thrown at me from time to time. It was all a huge challenge. I'm just surprised I got through it."

Britney Spears 'Back To Best' At Germany's Bambi Awards

Britney Spears Brian Friedman Karl Lagerfeld Keanu Reeves Leona Lewis Lorraine Kelly Madonna Meg Ryan The X Factor

Toxic star Britney Spears continued her path to recovery with a well-received performance at the Bambi awards in Germany on Thursday night.

Clad in hot pants, fishnet tights and a top hat - an outfit similar to that currently worn by her idol Madonna - Britney performed her hit Womanizer.

She then accepted the media prize in the Pop International category from fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who said the formerly troubled singer had returned to the limelight "not only as a phoenix but as a bird of paradise".

Other stars honoured at the Offenburg ceremony included Meg Ryan, Keanu Reeves and Leona Lewis, who won the Shooting Star award.

It was announced earlier this week that Britney will perform two concerts at London's O2 Arena as part of her world tour.

Speaking on GMTV, her mother Lynne Spears said the 26-year-old's public breakdown was behind her and she would soon be topping the charts again.

"We're going to get this done and it's all going to be good. You just wait and see," she told Lorraine Kelly.

Though her gigs at the O2 will be the only European stops on her 2009 tour, she will give her first performance on British TV for five years on The X Factor this weekend.

"She is such a sweet, endearing person. It will be nice to reconnect," said her former choreographer and X Factor dance svengali Brian Friedman.

"Last year, I asked her to come and do X Factor but she was too hectic. This year it's happening. I'm so glad to see her back on track. Her performance is going to be incredible."

Brian Friedman Rubbishes Rumours Of Dannii-rachel Feud

X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman says Rachel Hylton and Dannii Minogue are working well together.

The talent show contestant and her mentor were forced to issue statements this week denying tabloid reports of a split.

It was claimed that Rachel had sacked Dannii as her mentor on the ITV1 programme after poor song choices left her close to being voted off.

But speaking at the UK premiere of Body of Lies, Friedman said the pair are working happily together.

"Rachel loves Dannii, Dannii loves Rachel," he told reporters. "Everyone loves Rachel."

"She'll be doing the songs she chooses, which I believe is the right choice, as she knows her voice the best and Dannii's in agreement about that. It's going to be a good week for Rachel."

Mariah Carey will be singing live on this Saturday's show and Friedman revealed the remaining contestants were overwhelmed to rehearse with the diva.

"I think the most nerve-wracking thing you can possibly do is sing a Mariah Carey song in front of Mariah Carey, so in rehearsal [the contestants] were stressed out," he explained.

The former judge also confirmed that Britney Spears will be appearing on the live show next weekend.

"Britney is doing something she's never done before, she's got a whole new team working with her and according to her choreographers, she's doing amazingly," he added.

"She's kicking ass in rehearsals and she's totally excited about doing The X Factor."

When asked about who he thought the most likely winner of this year's show was, the dance svengali was elusive, replying: "Diana… Laura… Alexandra… JLS… Ruth… Rachel."

The X Factor screens on ITV1 at 19:20 GMT.
