Rylan Clark has hit back at claims that he was "bragging" about being able to afford private healthcare for his mother, after she suffered a nasty fall on holiday.The mum and son duo, who are incredibly close, had been enjoying a holiday abroad after 10 years not travelling anywhere together, when the accident happened.
After arriving back in the UK, Rylan, 35, and his mum Linda were hit by more difficulties when trying to get her stitches and staples removed.The former Big Brother star took to Twitter to ask for help after being on the phone to a NHS hospital for hours, only to be told they hadn't received a referral from Linda's GP.
He also revealed that a private surgery had refused to take her in as the original surgery had not been done by them. Rylan then asked his followers: "If anyone knows of any private hospitals/ medical groups in the Essex area that would accept her as an outpatient please get in touch." And some fellow Twitter users were less than impressed with him opting for private care, with one accusing him of "paying to Q Jump." The TV and radio presenter hit back at these trolls, writing: "For any confusion.
Mum is in an arm cast and has a leg brace on, she has broken her arm an leg in Spain. "The Spanish surgeon says she needs the staples out this week (time sensitive) and I need to pick it up the second we get back.
