Richard Madeley has reportedly been ‘rushed to hospital’ from the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here camp. 

According to The Sun, the 65-year-old began to worry his fellow campmates and production staff when he started feeling ill during the night.

An insider told the publication: “It was horrifying – 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.”

An ITV spokesperson has now released a statement.

It reads: “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.”

It’s been confirmed that an ambulance was called to Gwrych Castle at approximately 05.43am and Madeley was then taken to A&E.

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.”

The illness comes just one day after the Good Morning Britain presenter took part in a Bushtucker Trial called the Kitchen Nightmares.

After finishing the trial, Madeley returned back to the camp. However, he admitted to his campmates that he was disappointed with how it went.

Before entering the caste, the dad-of-two said he was eager to be voted for the challenges.

At the time, he commented: “I really hope I do get voted for the Trials.

“The thing about this programme is you mustn’t go into it if you take yourself remotely seriously. I don’t and I am thoroughly looking forward to being covered in god knows what!

“You have to be prepared for people to laugh and I see this as a bloody great romp of fun!”
