It looked like presenter Kem Cetinay got involved in the banter, too, as Wes uploaded a video of him in make-up, captioning it: "I gave Kem a makeover."

Brian has swiftly become one of the most popular celebrities on the ITV talent show.

He's become especially close to controversial Gemma Collins, despite admitting she can be "rude".

The TOWIE star even admitted she would've "quit" if not for the Irish singer.

Which is why fans were left worried this week when the dad-of-two revealed a back injury might mean his leaving the show early.

The 38-year-old singer has been working with the show's physio after damaging his rotator cuff, a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, following a fall last week.

A backstage source told The Sun: "Brian has been throwing himself into training but is finding it really tough as his back is giving him issues.

"He has been to see the show's physio, but it's looking increasingly likely that he will have to pull out of the show.

"Obviously he's determined to keep trying but he knows there's only so much he can do without inflicting a serious injury and causing long-term damage."

A spokesman for the ITV show said: "Brian has a bad back and is currently being monitored by our show physio."
