Brian Conley quits the I'm A Celebrity jungle for 'medical reasons'
Tuesday 20 November 2012
Funnyman Brian Conley has quit I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here after falling ill.
It comes days after viewers of the ITV1 show saw him break down in tears after a confrontation with David Haye when the boxer sparked a row by flicking two burning logs on to the forest floor.
An ITV spokeswoman said: "Brian Conley has left the jungle due to medical reasons," but refused to go into more detail.
There was better news for the newly confident Helen Flanagan who faced her seventh bushtucker trial and won five out of a possible 12 stars by braving boxes of ants and blankets of cockroaches.
Haye told the Bush Telegraph: "She's producing the goods now. Our baby Helen, she's a true trouper and we're quietly confident now that she's going to produce the goods."
Another person seemingly getting used to jungle life was MP Nadine Dorries who told her camp mates: "This has been so amazing for me. I realised that I have laughed so much. I realised that the day I entered politics is the day I stopped laughing."
But the good mood evaporated when dinner arrived and Hugo Taylor and Rosemary Shrager started to fall out over the cooking, and Taylor was left in tears after the chef branded him "rude".
