Richard Madeley quits I’m A Celebrity after being rushed to hospital

Richard Madeley has been forced to quit I’m A Celebrity.

The 65-year-old revealed the news just hours after he had been taken in an ambulance to hospital for treatment.

He insisted that he was “absolutely fine” but that because he had felt briefly unwell in the morning, he was taken to hospital as a precaution.

As a result, he broke his C-bubble and was forced to leave the show.

Madeley added that he was “gutted” to be leaving as he thanked everyone for their support during his brief journey on the show.

He said: “Obviously I’m gutted to be leaving so soon but the safety of all the campmates is the number one priority. I’m incredibly excited to watch their journey continue…even more so at the prospect of being somewhere a little warmer than Gwrych Castle.”
