I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! star Myles Stephenson has shared an update on his condition after it was revealed he was involved in an accident while on holiday at a ski resort in Andorra.

Addressing his Instagram followers from a hospital bed, the Rak-Su star said: "I was involved in a snowboarding accident I think about a week ago, which resulted in me rupturing my spleen, breaking some ribs and having some internal bleeding. The internal bleeding then resulted in blood situated around my lungs.

"I took a turn for the worst. I couldn't function much... but I'm getting better, day by day. I'm still in intensive care. I've still got a lot of wires stuck to me.

"They put an incision through my rib cage just above my lungs, made a puncture and just over three days or two days it's drained 950ml of blood which is apparently a lot of blood to be sitting around your lungs but we're good.

"This is a quick message to say thank you to everyone messaging. I've been told everyone's been asking about me. I'm going to get better and just love life man because I came too close to death.

"If I didn't listen to my mum – thank god for listening to her – and going to hospital, who knows what would've happened and that took 12 hours. The moral of the story is always listen to people who know more than you and if you have an instinct, follow it."
