'I was in a wheelchair for two or three weeks'

The former Islander revealed, 'At the start of this year, no one knows this, I had something called transverse myelitis.'

'I lost all movement in my legs and my left arm, paralysed, I was in a wheelchair for two or three weeks.'

He continued, 'I was in Dubai, I was in Thailand for all of the two weeks because that's the 'gram making it look like that.'

'But realistically, I wasn't. I was going through the hardest time of my life,' the star admitted.
