He continued: ‘It was then that I said, ‘What were the pads for?’ And they said, ‘If you weren’t breathing… because we’d have to restart you with electricity’.
Doctors needed: He went on to say that the family believed he was suffering from a heart problem but they believed it was more serious.

Rylan continued: ‘Two days before I did Eurovision, everyone knew something was wrong when I wasn’t at Eurovision.

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, who claims she hasn’t stopped working since 2012’s The X Factor, admitted she needed a ‘break’.
He said: ‘It was difficult but on reflection, yes, I needed to stop. Maybe it was a combination of 10 years. I haven’t stopped since the day I went on The X Factor.
“Nothing stopped. I don’t regret stopping. I feel that if I try to keep up, maybe I can handle things better from a personal perspective. I’m not sorry I stopped.’
