Due to the concerns he has regarding his mum's health, Rylan admitted: "I’ve got cameras in Mum’s house, so I can see her and make sure she’s OK."

Talking to The Mirror about how life is for her now, Celebrity Gogglebox star Linda told The Mirror: "I have nurses come round every morning and evening to give me a special feed.

"I’ve had Crohn’s since I was 30 and used to be in so much pain I’d be crying all the time. It was unbearable – I felt like I wanted to get a knife and punch my stomach open.

She added: "I've had three major bowel operations, and with the last one I got a stoma bag. Now I don’t have pain, which is a relief, but I’ve got to have nutrition put in me. Everything goes straight through where I’ve hardly got any bowel left."

Linda also explained that because she only has 70cm of bowel left she has to ensure that she empties the stoma straight away even if she has a glass of water.

The mum described her life as always being the bathroom.

Crohn's disease is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system.

Speaking about his mum's health on ITV's Loose Women in 2019, Rylan expressed to the panel that his mother has been suffering with the condition "all his life".

The star admitted: "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."
