Richard Madeley has been forced to quit I’m A Celeb due to ‘breaking the COVID bubble’ when he was rushed to hospital after falling ill on Wednesday night.

According to the tabloids, ITV bosses are concerned about Arlene Phillips and Naughty Boy and fear they too could soon leave Gwrych Castle.
Arlene Phillips is on painkillers and DJ Naughty Boy has sought counselling over his mum’s health.
Naughty Boy’s mum has dementia and their family have banned her from watching some of the series over fears it would be too distressing.
Richard issued a statement on Thursday after being taken to hospital in the early hours, saying he was ‘fine’ but had no choice but to exit the show after leaving the ‘covid bubble’.
He wrote: “Gutted to be leaving so soon but the safety of all the campmates is the No1 priority. I’m incredibly excited to watch their journey continue — even more so at the prospect of being somewhere a little warmer.”
