What Was Wrong With Rylan Clark’s Mom On Celebrity Gogglebox?

She was seen with an IV in her arm.

Rylan has now taken to Twitter to explain exactly what was going on and reassured fans that Linda is fine.

“If a lot of people asked, Mom is fine, she has a tpn line for a feed… that has to do with her Crohn’s. V normal. Thanks for asking,” he told them

As a result of Crohn’s disease, Linda, 69, has reportedly had three major bowel surgeries that gave her an ostomy pouch.

She has been suffering from the chronic illness since she was 30 and has endured pain that has left her in tears.

Talked to OK! magazine revealed to Linda that only 70cm of her gut is left.

“It often doesn’t go well with me. I have nurses come in every morning and evening to give me special food.”

Fortunately, Linda is no longer in constant pain after her operations.

But she reveals how food ‘goes straight’ and she has to empty her stoma immediately when she drinks.

Linda continued: “My life takes place in the bathroom. I have a line in me now – I don’t know how long it will be before the doctors can do nothing more. There’s too much going on there.

“I feel good, but I’m getting down because I can’t go out and do what I want to do.”

Rylan misses filming Gogglebox

Rylan and Linda have previously missed Gogglebox shots after claiming Linda was not feeling well.

But they revealed during an appearance on This Morning last month that Linda’s health had not been the problem.

“Actually, it was me who wasn’t that great,” he admitted, adding that Linda took the blame for being such a brilliant mom.

Rylan and Linda are firm favorites of Gogglebox fans and are inundated with offers for other television options.

In 2020, Rylan told the Daily Star: “We’ve been offered hundreds of things. We were asked to do a travel show and the chance to go here and there.

“It would be hilarious, but she’s just not good enough to do it.

“Gogglebox is enough for us.”

Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Channel 4 Friday at 9pm.
