Richard Madeley hints one I’m A Celeb contestant will QUIT after moaning show ‘isn’t what they signed up for’


RICHARD Madeley has hinted that one I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant will QUIT after moaning that the ITV series “isn’t what they signed up for”.

The 65-year-old star dished all as he returned to Good Morning Britain today following his premature exit from the reality show.

The TV favourite confessed that he thought I’m A Celeb had a “secret behind the scenes” where the campmates got to indulge off-camera – and he wasn’t the only one.

The celebrities instead got a harsh wake up call when they realised that the show is actually exactly how it appears on TV.

Speaking to Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid, Richard admitted: “I wanted to see if it was what I expected it to be like, and it’s not – it feels real.

“When the five of us got chucked into Castle Clink, we all though they show us this and when we’ve done that they’ll say: ‘Anyway, here’s your food and here’s your beds’ – it was a game of pretend and there’s a behind the scenes, but there’s not.”

And David Ginola appears to be on the edge, with Richard suggesting that the 54-year-old football legend could be pushed to his limits.

He explained: “David Ginola was really fed up about it; the next day we woke up and he tried the doors and they were locked.

“He said: ‘We are in prison, I did not sign up for this – I did not sign up to be chucked into jail, I’ve done nothing wrong!’”

It comes after Richard revealed that David received a telling off from show bosses after breaking a huge rule and trying to have secret conversations with his campmates.

Meanwhile, the former camper revealed exactly what happened when he fell ill in the early hours of Thursday morning – which ultimately sealed his fate and forced him out of the show.

Richard recalled the “disturbing” moment he woke up “incoherent”, telling the hosts: “Basically, I woke up and I didn’t know where I was, what was going on, and I could hardly string a sentence together. As it turned out, it was harmless.”

After being rushed to hospital and given “every test imaginable” Richard was given the all clear – with the star putting the scare down to severe dehydration.

I’m A Celeb has been plunged into chaos since the star’s exit – with the show sensationally pulled off air for two days after the set was battered by Storm Arwen.

In a shock move, the stars were evacuated from the castle and returned to their quarantine, with bosses hoping to get back on telly as soon as possible.
