What happened to Diags’ brother Jack?
- Jack was rushed to hospital with a brain aneurysm
Diags’ brother Jack was given brain surgery for eight and a half hours.
Jack had two bleeds on the brain, Diags revealed on Instagram.
Diags warned people to get checked if they feel unwell, are being sick, have headaches or a stiff neck, which suggests that Jack had the same symptoms.
Jack was rushed into Addenbrookes Hospital by Georgina Kelly.
A brain aneurysm is when a blood vessel inside the brain bulges or swells, which can potentially lead to death if it bursts.

Where is Jack Bennewith now?
- Jack has returned home following the surgery
On April 6, Diags wrote on Instagram that his brother was coming home.
It usually takes between three to six weeks to fully recover from brain aneurysm surgery, so it is likely that Jack has been resting.
Jack responded to Diags’ Instagram post with humour, commenting: “I know I know I’m a legend brain problems whatever.”
Twelve days after Diags posted that his brother was coming home, he was seen opening up to his best friend Chloe Sims about Jack’s surgery.
