Holly Willoughby and Susanna Reid have offered their well wishes for I’m A Celebrity star Richard Madeley after he was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning.

‘That would be terrible if he doesn’t come back, he’s amazing!’ with Phillip adding: ‘Hopefully,’ before Holly concluded: ‘Love Madeley.’

Richard’s Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid also took to Twitter to offer some kind words, writing: ‘Sending love – hope he’s feeling ok now. Doing brilliant job on#IACGMOOH and being supportive to everyone. Get well soon Richard.’

After news of Richard’s hospitalisation broke, 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.’

Just hours earlier Richard had earned just four stars in his first solo trial, Kitchen Nightmares, and confessed the ordeal had left him ‘freezing.’

He was forced to use his mouth to try and untie some of the knots to retrieve stars that were hanging from a rope.

As fish guts and offal fell on him, the presenter struggled to unknot the string that had the stars on and exasperated said: ‘Holy Moly’, before the klaxon sounded again, marking the end of the task. 

Gross! The broadcaster, 65, who took part in his first solo trial which saw him covered in fish guts and rotting fruit during Wednesday's show
