Jedward in Celebrity Big Brother drama as stage fall results in hospital visit

Half of the Irish novelty pop duo Jedward only managed a few minutes in the Celebrity Big Brother house following a big entrance that ended in a hospital visit.

John and Edward, better known as Jedward, were seen beginning their second stint on the Channel Five reality series on Saturday night, but when Edward fell off a stage during a performance to mark their entrance he was promptly whisked away to hospital.

Edward, dressed in a blue sequinned jacket, visited the diary room where he was told he would need to see a doctor and complained: "Now I have to go to hospital dressed like this."

He also said: "How weird is it to be in here without John?"

In his absence, his twin John spoke to reality TV star Heidi Montag about how strange it felt to be on his own and Montag, who is in the competition as one contestant with her husband Spencer Pratt, agreed.

She said: "I'm different when I'm not with Spencer ... Even outside of here, we're together almost 24 hours a day."

At the end of the episode, Edward, who first took part in the show with his brother in 2011, returned to the house just as the housemates were going to bed.

Also in the episode, footballer Jamie O'Hara complained that he was struggling to pay his ex-wife Danielle Lloyd her maintenance money.

O'Hara, who has two children with Lloyd, said: "When I was with her, I was earning really good money and she kind of expected that to continue. But I'm not on that money no more.

"I am trying. I am paying out a fortune. It's so f****** draining, the constant battle. When I was at Fulham I was paying out pretty much everything I was earning.

"I'm trying to rebuild myself as well, I'm entitled to a future."

:: Celebrity Big Brother continues on Sunday on Channel Five at 9pm.
