Danielle Harold reveals secret health scare that almost forced her to quit I’m A Celeb

Danielle Harold has revealed a secret health scare, which almost forced her to quit I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The EastEnders actress, best known for her role as Lola Pearce, entered the Australian jungle alongside eleven other stars last month.
Earlier this week, she became the fifth star to be evicted from the show.

According to The UK Sun, Danielle told a pal: “I felt wiped out, so rough and unwell, but I was determined to stay in there.”
“I hadn’t gone all that way for it to end like that.”
The outlet reported that although she felt unwell, Danielle refused to follow in the steps of Grace Dent and Jamie Lynn Spears – who left the show on medical grounds.
A source told the publication: “Danielle fell ill at the start of the show and developed a really nasty infection which made her very unwell.”

“It was all kept off camera and she just kept powering through,” the source continued. “Danielle was seen by the camp doctor several times.”
“They were very concerned but rather than throw in the towel she wanted to stay the course.”
“She was really sick but you’d never have known it. She kept smiling and kept trying her best in camp. She didn’t want to have to leave the show to go to hospital.”
“There were times in that first week when she really struggled.”

“She didn’t want to let anyone down in camp or her family and friends,” the source continued. She made sure she tried to eat as much as possible, as she knew that would help her.”
“The weather was also terrible in that first week which didn’t help. But Danielle is such a trouper and she was so brave to stick it out. She just cracked on.”
“The medics kept her closely monitored and she had to see them several times to make sure the infection was kept under control.”
“But she was very unwell for a few days and lost nearly a stone.”
