Rylan Clark-Neal has almost lost mother 3 times

Rylan Clark-Neal’s mother has nearly died three times.
The 30-year-old TV personality has opened up about his mum Linda, admitting she has suffered with "severe Crohn’s disease" – a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system – his whole life, and she nearly passed away from sepsis last year.
Speaking on Tuesday’s episode of ‘Loose Women’ (11.06.19), he said: "My mum has suffered all my life from severe Crohn’s disease and I don’t think Crohn’s gets spoken about enough. I nearly lost my mum last year, again, for the third time.
"She was, with all due respect, the hospital said to her, ‘If you didn’t come in [for] one more week, that would be it.’ My mum has been ill my entire life."
Rylan – who rose to fame in 2012 after finishing fifth in the ninth series of ‘The X Factor’ – revealed his mother only managed to attend "one live show" on the programme because of her illness.
She added: "When I was on ‘The X Factor’, for argument’s sake, she only managed to get to one live show. That was quite upsetting for her to see that – who wants to see me singing? It’s just moments like that."
The TV presenter and his mum are to feature on ‘Celebrity Gogglebox’ from the comfort of his home, because she feels "safe" in his house.
He said: "With the radio, I say to her every week, ‘Why don’t you come in?’ She won’t because she is not well enough to do that.
"But with ‘Celebrity Gogglebox’, she feels so comfortable because she is in my house, she feels safe."
The former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner was "nervous" about his mother appearing on television, but says she was a natural on camera.
He said: "I was nervous more so, because I think I am so used to doing the TV stuff now, my mum is not. I was very nervous about my mum.
"She came round yesterday and obviously the crew, everyone was talking to her and calmed her down. The first line that came out of her mouth. We can’t have the sound on this because it is daytime … I need to apologise in advance to Holly Willoughby, you will understand when you watch the show.
"I cannot believe the conversations I had with my mum yesterday…"
