I’m A Celebrity’s Richard Madeley RETURNS home after medical emergency

 Richard Madeley appeared frail but in high spirits as he was pictured at his home on Friday following his departure from the I’m A Celebrity castle. 

The GMB presenter, 65, left the Welsh camp after falling ill on Thursday morning, prompting an emergency dash to a local hospital – which subsequently resulted in him breaking the Covid bubble formed with his campmates. 

The star seemed in high spirits as he stepped out of his home while drinking a cup of tea and flashing a thumbs up at cameras.  

In a statement Richard, who was believed to be treated at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Rhyl, reassured fans that he’s ‘fine’ after his health scare, but confirmed he had to quit the series after breaking the show’s ‘Covid bubble.’

Richard appeared keen to show all is well in Camp Madeley as he emerged to greet photographers following the heartbreaking blow that forced him off the show.  

As the star’s departure from the 2021 series was due to medical reasons and not from quitting of his own accord, it is thought he will get his full salary – which is believed to be an eye-watering £200,000 – after just four days in the jungle. 

Richard also said: ‘With Simon Gregson and Adam Woodyatt going in, I mean they’re brilliant signings as well, but Dickie was very much a marquee signing.

‘The duty of care would have been paramount with Richard on set, and there is an on set medical team at all times as well, but it was felt that perhaps it was escalated to take him to hospital for a reason, and a very valid reason, because Richard no doubt would have protested.’

‘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…

‘Thank you to everyone who supported me on my brief but completely unforgettable adventure – I’ve made some great friends and honestly had the time of my life.’

An I’m A Celebrity spokesperson added: ‘Our strict Covid protocols means Richard has sadly had to leave the show as he is no longer in the bubble the celebrities form when entering the castle.

‘He has been a truly brilliant camp mate and we thank him for being part of this series.’

A source also told MailOnline: ‘Richard is devastated. He was doing his best in the trials and embracing every part of life in camp, this isn’t the way he saw his I’m A Celeb journey ending.

‘Richard going back to camp would pose as too much of a risk to the other contestants, who have isolated and formed a bubble to protect themselves from a possible Covid-19 outbreak on set.

‘Everyone on the show will miss him – he’s been a huge part of camp and it’s so disappointing he won’t be able to return.’
