WEIGHT LOSS Eric in jun­gle camp in 2012

wasn’t any­thing to do with what hap­pened in Aus­tralia. There was a small clot in Eric’s heart valve and he was dead be­fore he hit the floor.”

But she said his health did suf­fer in the wake of the jun­gle stint, adding: “He felt poorly at dart player James Wade’s wed­ding and we took him off to hos­pi­tal.

“That was not long af­ter the jun­gle. Ob­vi­ously we can’t say for cer­tain that it was be­cause of the jun­gle but I don’t think it’s a co­in­ci­dence.”

Bex said it “took ages for Eric to be able to eat prop­erly again”. She added: “What you see them eat in the jun­gle is lit­er­ally all they get, so the stom­ach shrinks. He was just drink­ing boiled wa­ter, there was no caf­feine or su­gar. It’s a big worry for the ones who are not fit, young and healthy.

“They lose so much weight so fast. Eric did not re­gret go­ing in. He loved ev­ery minute and made some amaz­ing friends.”

Bex re­vealed dis­cus­sions are un­der way for a film or mini-se­ries on Eric’s life story.

She said: “There is quite a bit of in­ter­est, so hope­fully some­thing comes out of it. It might be like the Bar­bara Wind­sor and Cilla Black ones that were on re­cently.

“I can’t even be­gin to imag­ine who would play Eric. It would have to be some­one with a very strong char­ac­ter.”

Last night a TV source said: “Camp­mates’ health is a pri­or­ity. We would ob­vi­ously keep in touch and mon­i­tor any­body that had an is­sues in the jun­gle.”

The source added: “Yes, Harry has lost a bit of weight but he is do­ing fine as mil­lions of view­ers can see.”

An­other in­sider also ques­tioned the com­par­i­son be­tween Eric and Harry.

“Harry and Eric’s lifestyle were very dif­fer­ent,” they said. McVey JAMES McVey has blasted some of his jun­gle ri­vals for “act­ing” up to the cam­eras.

The Vamps singer, 24, told pal Harry Red­knapp they were dif­fer­ent from the rest of the re­main­ing camp­mates.

Cover­ing his mic, he NICK Knowles will wind down his mu­sic ca­reer af­ter be­ing com­pared with Ricky Ger­vais’s cringe-char­ac­ter David Brent.

A pal said he left the jun­gle to of­fers of gigs and a sec­ond al­bum deal was a pos­si­bil­ity.

But they added:

“He is set to turn down the said: “There’s quite a few who are act­ing, singing for cam­era. I don’t want to show off.

“It gets a bit frus­trat­ing some­times.”

Harry replied: “They get up and sing and dance. Emily’s all this scream­ing.” gigs as he would be a nov­elty act and that is not what he wants. He al­ways takes a gui­tar with him around the world and that won’t change. But the al­bum was meant to be a one-off.” Nick will give cash from his iTunestop­per Make You Feel My Love to char­ity.
