I’m A Celeb’s Ant and Dec under fire for mocking Richard during trial as they post picture of skeletons


ANT and Dec have come under fire for mocking Richard Madeley during the trial with a badly time joke.

The I’m A Celeb presenters made no secret of how funny they found it watching Richard struggle to get any stars and later shared a picture of themselves as corpses – referencing how long it took him.

They wrote: “Us waiting for Richard to undo the knots #ImACeleb.”

But their ill-timed gag came as Richard, 63, was rushed to hospital due to a medical emergency.

Fans of the star were unimpressed with the presenting duo’s joke and took to Twitter to berate them.

One person wrote: “Disgusting post.  U try doing it & be laughed at. That man went to hospital & u post this? I thought u 2 we’re good people………😱🤬 will not watch either of you. U have parents shame on you both 🔥.”

Another viewer remarked: “Bit of an unfortunate photo now we know Richard has been taken to hospital.”

While someone else wrote: “That’s mean ! The trial was unrealistic to achieve in 10 mins. Poor @richardm56 he did well regardless & still managed Medium stars. He’s been such a positive influence on others, supporting/lifting them..”

In the early hours of this morning the TV presenter left stars and production staff terrified with the medical emergency – which saw medics rush to Gwrych Castle, where the ITV show is filmed. 

“It was horrifying – campers were really upset and concerned, all of the crew and medics rushed to set to help him,” a source tells HOAR. 

“It was a real scare for everyone involved.”

Richard was rushed to a nearby hospital by ambulance but is now “on the mend” say sources.

He had a nightmare with the knots in the challenge
