I'm A Celeb's John Barrowman Rushed To Hospital Over Campsite Injury
John Barrowman sparked concern among I'm A Celebrity fans on Sunday night, as they learned the campmate had been taken to hospital after sustaining an injury in the jungle.
While walking down a path to wash a pot with Harry Redknapp, John managed to twist his ankle and was left crying out in pain.
Fellow campmates Nick Knowles and Malique Thompson-Dwyer helped John into the medical hut, where I'm A Celeb jungle medics advised him to go to hospital for an x-ray to examine the damage.
His future in the jungle was thrown into jeopardy, and the Doctor Who stalwart was excluded from Sunday night's vote off leading many to believe he could be the next star to leave the programme.
Show presenters Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby reassured viewers that all money spent voting for the Doctor Who star would be refunded through the I'm A Celebrity website.
John spent the night away from camp, and sent a message to his worried new celeb pals.
"I am lying here sipping champagne in a hospital with six male strippers. Continue to live jungle life as normal," joked John.
"I want to be back in there with you all soon. But please get some rest this evening. Ps I want my f*cking dinner when I get back!"
Viewers flocked to Twitter to share their concerns that John might not head back into the jungle after spraining his ankle.

"Poor John he might be out of I'm a celeb I hope not!" exclaimed one worried viewer.
While another fan declared: "If John doesn't come back into the jungle then that's I'm a Celeb cancelled for this year."
Thankfully, a spokesperson for the reality show has since confirmed that John is now back down under after an overnight stay.
