I was gagging from the pain.

In a new vlog, Joe decided to go into detail about the painful symptoms he experienced, while his girlfriend Dianne Buswell, 31, was away filming.

He began by stating: "Last Monday evening, all of a sudden my stomach started to feel like it was cramping up and as you know, I've had a dodgy tummy for ages.

"It was so bad I couldn't eat, I felt nauseous, I was gagging from the pain of my stomach."

He went on to detail: "And throughout the night it moved from the middle of my stomach down to my right-hand side, [and] as a lot of you will know, that's a danger side, that's where your appendix lives.

"I tried to contact my GP but apparently they were getting a thousand calls a day because of coronavirus, so I couldn't get through to them."

Joe, who rose to fame as a YouTube vlogger, went on to explain to his viewers how Dr Ranj "saved the day" after he "panicked".

"So, I panicked, I called my neighbour who goes by the name of Dr Ranj. Thank you so much Ranj, you probably saved the day.

"Ranj is a paediatrician, he works for the NHS, he's a brilliant doctor and he came round and pushed my stomach a lot and he was like, 'How does this feel?' He did a little test, he got his little stethoscope out and listened in."
