The classic DJ had some health issues, dealt with in private

Much of the appeal of Celebrity Big Brother lies in the fact that with 24hr surveillance, we get to see some famous folks like we’ve never seen them before.

However, whenever anything serious happens this concept tends to get relaxed in order to preserve privacy – and less than a week in, this has had to be applied for Brandon Block, as it has been claimed that he was rushed to hospital in unaired scenes, earlier this week.

Former club DJ Brandon was allegedly taken to hospital on Thursday (5th January) after complaining of chest pains.

After his initial concern, it is claimed that he was taken aside to be seen to by the backstage team. A source tells the Daily Star:

‘Brandon wasn’t well at all. It was pretty serious.

‘He immediately saw the medics that were on standby at the house.’

When the on-site medical professionals were unable to diagnose the problem, 49-year-old Brandon was allegedly then taken to hospital: ‘…There were concerns his condition could worsen and could even become critical so it was decided he needed to go to hospital.’

However, an official spokesperson for Brandon has denied the seriousness of the situation. The colleague took to Twitter to claim that the tests were routine:

‘Checked in with producers last night and It’s been a bit fabricated! The tests were routine!’

In any case, Brandon’s health seems to have recovered as he has since returned to the house. And he was not the only Housemate to have incurred a medical issue – soon after entering the house on Friday evening, Edward Grimes (one half of Jedward) took a trip to hospital after falling off of the stage.
