Concern is growing for Celebrity Big Brother’s Sam Faiers after she was removed from the house and taken to hospital on Friday morning.

The TOWIE star has reportedly been unwell for much of her time in the house, suffering from a mystery virus which has left her sick and exhausted.

However the Mirror has reported that she was taken to see doctors on Friday after her condition worsened.

And the paper has said that producers are monitoring her condition closely, sparking doubts over whether she will have to leave the house before Wednesday’s final.

“Sam left the house yesterday morning to attend an appointment with a consultant for an ongoing medical concern,” a Channel 5 spokesman said.

“Whilst out of the house she was accompanied at all times by a member of Endemol staff who ensured contact with the outside world remained at a minimum.”

Recent evictees Liz Jones and Linda Nolan have also said that Sam has been battling illness during her time in the house.

Linda revealed that she helped Sam when she was being sick in the house, while Liz hit out at viewers who accused the reality star of doing nothing in the house.

“Sam is suffering in there. She has been accused of being quiet and not doing anything but there is a reason. She has been ill for more than two weeks.

“I gather none of this has been shown and people don’t know,” she said.

The next Celebrity Big Brother eviction will take place on Sunday night.
