Iain Lee appeared on Good Morning Britain wearing a neck brace after falling down a well on Friday. The 44-year-old, who came third on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in 2017, opened up about the incident, admitting that he had to call 999 to get him out of the situation after he slipped and fell into a wishing well in Milton Keynes. Giggling at the situation, Kate Garraway introduced the radio host, saying: "Iain Lee joins us by the skin of his teeth. He's had a near death experience. I don't want to laugh, but he fell down a well. I just find it so funny at the same time."

Iain spoke about falling down a well 

Deadpanning, Iain replied: "I thought this was going to be a serious discussion about well-droppers." Opening up about the incident, he explained: "I was making a wish, because you know I've had a bit of bad luck recently, I tossed a coin and I tossed it like that to go into the well and it got stuck in the moss. So I put my legs over the well and held onto the rope to try and get it, and then I fell." As the hosts laughed at the situation, Iain said: "It's not funny. It took me an hour to get out of bed because I'm so stiff!"

Iain tweeted about the incident on Friday, writing: "Sorry team. This is messed up. Tonight's show is cancelled as I've fallen down a well. This is not a joke. It's not metaphorical. It's an actual well. This is nuts. Phone dying. Help is coming but I'm a bit shaken." He added: "Right. Phone dying. Sprained ankle. Soaking wet. I've been told the fire brigade are on their way. Pray god for me."
