I'm A Celebrity 2021: Richard Madeley taken to hospital after falling ill on set

November 25, 2021

Richard Madeley has been taken to hospital after falling ill overnight on the set of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

A statement from a show spokesman said: "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."

The presenter, 65, was seen on Wednesday night crawling headfirst through a pipe full of rotten fruit and vegetables.

Madeley is best known for presenting This Morning alongside his wife Judy Finnigan.

A spokeswoman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 5.43am 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 show is being hosted in Wales for a second year in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is usually filmed in Australia.
