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.
