I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 001 Richard Madeley has left the show. After falling ill and then breaking the Covid bubble on Thursday, he and his Good Morning Britain co-stars expressed their “gutted” feelings.
Ben Shephard discussed the “devastating” news on Friday’s episode of GMB, saying he was “gutted” that Richard was not allowed back into the Welsh Castle.
The 65-year-old presenter became ill after participating in a Bushtucker Trial this week and was taken to the hospital as a precaution. He was not allowed back in due to ITV’s strict coronavirus guidelines because he had broken the cast Covid “bubble.”

In response to the news, Ben said that not allowing his co-star pal back into Gwrych Castle was a “mistake.” “It was short and sweet,” Ben said.
It’s such a pity because Richard was the one who was trying to persuade the others not to leave, and now he’s gone. “It sounds like it was a Covid-19 protocol issue; he broke the bubble to go to the hospital and then couldn’t get back in.”
“I think someone mаde а mistаke there..”
