Myles Stephenson has revealed the true extent of his horrific injuries following a snowboarding accident last week as he continues to recover in hospital.

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star was seriously injured while snowboarding at a ski resort in Andorra earlier in February and was rushed to hospital where he was placed in intensive care.

Returning to social media for the first time since the accident, Myles told followers: ‘I was involved in a snowboarding accident about a week ago which resulted in me rupturing my spleen breaking, broken ribs and having internal bleeding. This resulted in blood in my lungs.’ 

Panning to the wires and tubes hanging beside his hospital bed, Myles continued: ‘That’s meds going straight to my jugular artery. That noise is that they operated and put an incision through my rib cage just above my lungs made a puncture and just over three days or two days.’ 

Myles, 28, went on to reveal how doctors drained 950ml of blood’ that was ‘sitting around [his] lungs, but insists: ‘We’re good.’ 

Expressing his gratitude to still be alive, Myles said positively: ‘This is a quick message to say thank you to everyone messaging. I’ve been told everyone’s been asking about me.

‘Just live life because I came too close to death. Thank god for listening to my mum because if I didn’t listen to her, and go into the hospital. Who knows what would have happened.’ 

Mums really do know best. 

He added: ‘The moral of the story is always listen to people who know more than you do.’ 

It comes after the Rak-Su singer recently thanked the medical team giving him round-the-clock care. 

The X Factor star said:  ‘I have seen progression in good health and thank god I am doing okay. 

‘Thank you to the nurses, doctors and especially my family for treating me like a prince! I love you all.’

It’s certainly a disappointing way for Myles to start the new year as he has just returned from the I’m a Celeb jungle after spending weeks living on rations.
