Richard Madeley arrives home and tucks into first post-castle meal after I'm A Celeb hospital dash and exit

RICHARD Madeley tucked into a McDonald’s burger and chips as he arrived home last night.

The 65-year-old was forced to quit I’m A Celebrity after he was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Thursday morning – breaking the shows strict Covid rules.


And he made the most of this new found freedom last night as he swapped rice and beans for a more hearty meal.

His daughter Chloe, who has been supporting him throughout, shared a picture of his fast food feast, telling fans: “He’s home.”

Yesterday afternoon Richard said he was “gutted” to leave I’m A Celebrity after his early hours medical emergency.

Ambulance crews who were called at 5.23am yesterday rushed him to hospital for tests.

The Good Morning Britain host later explained he cannot return because he breached the contestants’ secure Covid bubble.

He wrote on Instagram: “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.”
