Christopher Maloney disclosed that after he got to the hospital, it was realized a parasite embedded itself in his large intestine, giving him colitis of the colon.
Christopher recalled how he ate a meal of crispy duck and pancakes and started to feel ill around five hours later and is now left with a lifelong condition.
Sharing his experience in an interview with The Mirror, he said; ‘I was literally on the floor and in the toilet, I was ill, it was just horrendous.
‘I had a fever, I had hallucinations and I couldn’t sleep because I was constantly going to the toilet and vomiting.’
Christopher said: ‘I honestly nearly died, my organs were shutting down. I nearly died. They were going to remove my colon and put me in a colostomy bag.’
This terrible incident happened to Christopher during the festive season and his birthday; on Boxing Day in 2019 with the cast of the Cinderella panto he was starring in at the time.
