Myles wrote on Instagram: "I'm not one to post family stuff on social media! I also don’t prayer much but when I do I know I’m worried.
"But… all my Jamaican side are very religious and I know they want as many prayers as possible!
"Say a prayer for my Dad for me gang, this morning he was rushed to hospital due to covid.
"He has already been once but this time his breathing has worsened. This post is not a ply violins for me it’s for my dad and also to stress that Covid is NOT LIKE a common cold, many people (including myself) at times think selfishly as they have not been affected by it.
"But many have. My Dad is, Black, Overweight and has COPD. Nothing has EVER hospitalised him until today!
I want to reiterate COVID is no joke! But yeah, prayer for my best mate and stay safe!"
Myles has since decided to step back from social media to focus on his family.
He said: "Hi guys I won’t be streaming till I have an update on my dad. Once he is out of hospital we shall hit it hard and make up for all the lost time."
Before coronavirus hit his family, Myles told Good Morning Britain he was terrified of catching it – because blood pooled in his lungs after his snowboarding accident.
The 29-year-old suffered a ruptured spleen and cracked ribs while snowboarding in Andorra last year.
The injuries left him with a weakened immune system.
Speaking to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Good Morning Britian, the I'm A Celeb star said: "Because my spleen was ruptured, it means my immune system is quite low.
"And I damaged my lungs as well, there was about 1500ml of blood in and around my lungs.
"So my respiratory system isn't the greatest either. Because as we all know the virus attacks the respiratory system and breathing, so I've got to be pretty cautious around other people."
