Burnley and Pendle Citizen: Kian Egan suffered from severe exhaustion in the Australian jungle Kian Egan suffered from severe exhaustion in the Australian jungle

Kian Egan has revealed that he was almost rushed to hospital during his stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The Westlife singer, who was crowned king of the jungle on December 8, admitted that he suffered from severe exhaustion, which left him bedridden for two days.

He told the Daily Mirror: "Being bedridden was really worrying. I knew I was hungry, but I had two days where I couldn't get out of bed.

"I was having weird head rushes whenever I stood up. It was horrible. It was way, way harder than I ever imagined."

Kian - who was offered a doctor's visit in the camp - was given the all-clear after the ITV reality show ended. He admitted that adjusting to normal life has been "strange".

"It's really weird to be out in the real world. Being around people is strange. Being on flat ground makes a huge difference in your life," he explained.

"As soon as I got out, I couldn't wait to spend some quality time with Jodi and have a hot shower - and eat some normal food. I was also looking forward to having a few drinks."

The 33-year-old added: "It's an emotional rollercoaster in there. I've got loads of stories I can now tell my grandkids."

Kian, who said his time on the show made him realise how much he loved his wife Jodi Albert, said participating in the show was one of the best things he has done during his career.

He said: "I'm on top of the world. I can't believe I'm the King of the Jungle. It was the best three weeks in my life. It was unreal and life-changing. It's genuinely something you'll never forget."
