The TalkRADIO host, 44, said: ‘We can’t afford to keep her there. It’s very upsetting.’

Before heading to Australia, the father-of-two was forced to tell Linda he would have to move her.

A source close to him told The Sun: ‘His mum’s care home costs are a great concern for Iain.

‘He’ll be able to use a proportion of his jungle fee to stabilise the situation.

‘He’s made no secret of the fact he can’t wait to get home to his boys but knowing the money will be a huge help to his mum is stopping him from walking out,’ they added.

Iain, who has spoken only about his battles with depression, garnered praise for the way he challenged the mental health stigma while on the show, alongside fellow contestant Rebekah Vardy.

The star has also been the subject of a bullying row in camp as some contestants accuse him of being a game player.

Previously, Iain’s discussion on his own depression prompted Rebekah Vardy to open up about hers.

The brunette beauty candidly discussed her battle with post-natal depression that followed her second pregnancy with baby Taylor.

A mother-to-four, Rebekah told Iain and the camp she tried to take her life in her teens and constantly battled depression throughout her formative years.
