Operation Transformation leader Dan Kennedy is in hospital where he is being treated for severe colitis, it has been revealed.
At last week’s weigh-in, viewers saw Dan tell the Operation Transformation experts that he had not been feeling well, suffering from stomach cramps and passing blood.
He was advised to rest up while the issue was investigated by medics.
Following tests, doctors have diagnosed Dan with severe colitis and he remains in hospital where he is currently being monitored and undergoing tests.
As a result, Dan will not be following the Operation Transformation plan this week and did not take part in this week’s weigh-in, weekly challenge or parkrun.
Operation Transformation expert Dr Ciara Kelly said: “Dan is currently in hospital being treated for severe colitis. He is being monitored and is receiving all the treatment and care that he needs. This is a condition that pre-existed his involvement in Operation Transformation which Dan was unaware of.
“Dan has shown immense leadership qualities during this time, showing huge concern for his followers. We would like to wish him a speedy recovery”.
Meanwhile, Dan himself said that he was really disappointed to have to step back from Operation Transformation this week.
“But I am really hopeful that, all going well, I will be back soon. I would definitely recommend to anyone who has any niggling worries to not be afraid to go to their doctor and get it sorted. I also encourage anyone following my plan to keep going and thank you for all your support,” he said..
However, the 44-year-old Dubliner will still feature on the show this week, as cameras have been able to film him in the hospital setting, a show insider revealed.
