Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield are astonished to learn that Richard Madley had been taken to the hospital.
Presenters paused the TODAY show to bring you breaking news — first to reveal — that an ambulance was called to the palace for the I’m A Celeb star at 4 a.m.
Overwhelmed by the news, a concerned Holly said: “Richard we are sending you our best wishes and we hope he is back at the palace soon.
“It would be terrible if he didn’t come back, he’s wonderful.”
Philip said: “Hopefully they’ll take a quick look at that and sort it out.”
Holly agreed, saying: “Yeah, it’s better to be safe.”
Last night the TV presenter left the stars and production staff horrified with a medical emergency.
“It was horrifying – the camper was really upset and worried, all the crew and medics rushed to help him,” a source said.
“It was a real fear for everyone involved.”

Sources say Richard was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, but is “well” now.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Richard was unwell early in the morning and our on-site medical team saw him immediately.
“He has been taken to hospital as a precaution, the health and safety of our camp mates is our priority.”
A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called at 05.43 this morning, Thursday 25 November 2021, to a report of a medical emergency at Gwyrich Castle in Abergel, Conwy.
“We sent a paramedic and an emergency ambulance to the scene in a quick response car, and a patient was taken to the hospital.”

Richard’s scare came just a day after he was seen on TV doing the show’s Kitchen Nightmares Trials — and hours after he competed in a group of Bushtacker Trials with other celebs.
The 65-year-old, who is married to Judy Finnigan and is set to take over Piers Morgan’s job at Good Morning Britain in 2022, was in good health during the trial – the presenters joking with Ant and Dec.
However, after struggling to untie the knots and being thrown in with rotten fruit, Richard missed out on six out of ten stars for the camp and was disappointed.
