Following the departure of Brian Conley from I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! For health reasons, ITV have issued a robust defence of the medical examinations they run on the celebrities taking part in the Australian jungle.

Conley’s departure has caused fury among his family after the television personality was thought to have had a huge collapse leading to hospitalization. The signs became clear after he broke down following an argument with boxer David Haye on the program, subsequently going on to quit. Conley’s entire family are now in Australia and critics have suggested that the show’s network ITV haven’t been as thorough with physical and mental tests on contestants prior to the show as they should be.

However, in a statement reported by The Guardian, ITV said: “All contestants are assessed by independent medical experts before contracts are signed, and again before entering the jungle. We also have contact where necessary with the celebrities' GPs. Medical personnel are also available 24 hours a day in Australia to provide support if needed." Conley has admitted past battles with alcoholism and depression, but before the show had insisted how much he was looking forward to his experience Down Under. "I am 51 and this is an experience that money cannot buy," he said. "This is a trip I will take to my grave and I will never forget."
