    I’m A Celeb confirm no one will enter ITV show as stand-in following Richard’s exit

    I'm A Celebrity bosses have confirmed no one will replace Richard Madeley in the castle after his shock exit.

    The Good Morning Britain presenter was forced to pull out of the show after he was rushed to hospital in the early hours of the morning. Whilst he has since reassured fans he's fine, he has been forced to leave the show due to its strict Covid regulations.

    Because Richard has been forced to break the Covid bubble on set, it means he has had no choice but to leave the castle – but I'm A Celeb bosses have announced that no one will replace him in the show.

    Richard Madeley has left the castle – and no one will replace him

    Bosses have confirmed Richard will not be replaced on the ITV show, after there were rumours that DJ Locksmith – who had been seen in Wales before the show begun but kept off the main line-up – might join the remaining 11 campmates.

    Richard released a statement earlier today to reassure fans he was fine.

    "Hello all! Richard here – firstly just to say that I’m absolutely FINE. I started to feel briefly unwell in the small hours of the morning and was taken to hospital as a precaution," he began.

    Just yesterday, he took part in a trial


    "By leaving the camp, I had consequently broken the Covid ‘bubble’ and as such I’ve had to leave the castle and all the wonderful celebs that remain in the camp."

    He said he was "gutted" to depart the show, and called the whole adventure "brief but completely unforgettable".
