Anger As I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here's Brian Conley Quits Over Health Issues

Serious concerns have been raised about the TV show I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!after one of the contestants this year, Brian Conley, quit the show following a huge collapse. The reality show sees the celebrities taking part have to undertake a series of medical tests before being allowed to enter the Australian jungle; however there have been accusations that these haven’t been taken seriously enough after TV personality Conley reportedly suffered a huge collapse.

A source told The Sun that Conley’s family rushed to Australia to by his bedside, including wife Anne-Marie. “She couldn’t believe how much he’d changed after ten days in the jungle. He looks really unwell and vulnerable” said the insider. “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” she added.

It was apparent pretty quickly that all was not well with Conley, who has battled depression and alcoholism in the past. He burst into tears after an argument with David Haye, and was seen tearing into TV chef Rosemary Shrager. A statement from ITV said: “The safety and welfare of our contestants is of paramount importance. All contestants are assessed by independent medical experts. We also have contact where necessary with the celebrities’ GPs. Medical personnel are also available 24 hours a day to provide support if it is needed.”
