I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here contestant Richard Madeley, 65, has been rushed to hospital it has been reported.
Campmates were shocked as Madeley became unwell and had to be taken to hospital.
Before joining the show, Richard said in a recorded video, which was broadcast on Tuesday (16 November), he’d “welcome any trial just for something to do” as he is so bored in quarantine.
“I’ve been in quarantine for about 10 days now and, if any of you have been in quarantine, my god, it’s boring,” he said.
Richard’s scary medical episode happened a day after he took part in a ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ trial. This saw him soaked in fish guts along with rotting fruit.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Richard was unwell in the early hours and was immediately seen by our on-site medical team.
“He’s since been taken to hospital as a precaution, the health and safety of our campmates is our priority.”
A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 05.43am this morning, Thursday 25 November 2021, to reports of a medical emergency at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Conwy.
“We sent a paramedic in a rapid response car and an emergency ambulance to the scene, and one patient was taken to hospital.”
