Richard Madeley Rushed To Hospital From I'm A Celeb Set

I'm A Celebrity...was thrown into chaos in the early hours of the morning, after a campmate was taken to hospital.

Richard Madeley suddenly became ill while in camp, leaving crew no choice but to take him to hospital.

The 65-year-old's sickness came just one day after he was seen on TV doing the show’s Kitchen Nightmare's trial.

"It was horrifying," an insider told The Sun. "Campers were really upset and concerned, all of the crew and medics rushed to set to help him.

"It was a real scare for everyone involved."

While he was raced to a nearby hospital, sources have since said that Richard is now "on the mend."

It is yet to be confirmed whether he will return to the series.

A spokesperson for the programme said: "Richard was unwell in the early hours and was immediately seen by our on-site medical team.

Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.

Richard, who is best known for hosting This Morning alongside wife Judy Finnegan, has previously expressed his desire to do as many trials as possible while on the show.

"You have to be prepared for people to laugh and I see this as a bl**dy great romp of fun!" he said before entering the castle.

It's already been a dramatic series of I'm A Celebrity..., already seeing one campmate threatening to quit the show altogether.

Naughty Boy expressed a desire to leave camp, fearing he was being seen as the "weakest link" amongst his campmates.

Viewers expressed their concern for the star on Twitter, with one person writing: "I actually feel a little sorry for Naughty Boy...I think he suffers a little bit with his confidence or something.”

A second added: "Awww I feel so sorry for Naughty Boy, but he’s being a little bit dramatic."
