The athlete then collapsed to the ground before Aled rushed over to help.
Aled said, “What do you mean that you can’t breathe? Do you mean that seriously? Stay with me.”
After the tense scene, Ant provided the other participants with an update on Kieron – number 12.
With a serious face he said to the group: “Number 12 …
“Unfortunately he didn’t make it.”
The news left the recruits stunned as Alexandra Burke sat with her mouth open.

However, Ant quickly added, “No, I’m kidding.
“He’s done a few tests, he’s put his feet up and is enjoying a nice warm bed. Don’t worry there. “
In the end, Kieron had to cancel the show for medical reasons.
