Richard also issued a statement on his departure from the camp to his fans online.
He used a promotional photo of himself wearing his I’m A Celeb gear, while his caption stressed that fans had nothing to worry about because he was “absolutely fine,” despite being taken to the hospital early Thursday morning.
“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.
“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 continued to stress that the safety of his fellow campmates was his utmost priority and that while he would no longer appear on the show, he’ll continue watching the remaining contestants continue their journey without him.
