Brian McFadden axed a planned appearance as a panellist on I'm a Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here Now! last night after falling sick.

He was taken ill after travelling to the programme's location on Australia's Gold Coast and had to pull his appearance at the last minute, according to reports.

Taking to his Twitter page, McFadden wrote: "Being sick sucks!!!!!... Hoping I'll be better in the morning so I can go into the jungle for I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Full of tablets and injection."

McFadden recently wed Dublin model Vogue Williams in Italy, after splitting from Australian singer Delta Goodrem.

His first wife Kerry Katona, who he has two children with, won the third series of I'm a Celebrity in 2004.
