I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'s Richard Madeley has been taken to hospital after falling ill in camp.

The Good Morning Britain presenter is said to have become unwell in the early hours of Thursday (November 25) morning.

In a statement, ITV confirmed to Digital Spy that Richard had been taken to hospital as "a precaution", although there's no word yet on whether he'll be able to return to Gwrych Castle.

"Richard was unwell in the early hours and was immediately seen by our on-site medical team," a spokesperson said. "He's since been taken to hospital as a precaution, the health and safety of our campmates is our priority."

Wishing you a swift recovery, Richard!

Richard's hospitalisation comes after the presenter took part in I'm a Celeb's latest gruesome Bushtucker Trial, Castle Kitchen Nightmares, securing four out of 10 stars for his fellow campmates.

The broadcaster and journalist recently told Digital Spy and other media that he'd previously turned down I'm a Celebrity – but this year, he changed his mind.

"ITV call me and they say will I do it, and I always say 'Thanks, but no thanks' because I love watching it," he admitted.

"This year they phone up and I was about to use the same reply I've always given them and it's funny because a little lightbulb went on and I thought, 'Hang on, let's think about this,' because what's happened in the last 21 years since this thing started is that it's become part of the social fabric of the UK.

"It's not just a television show, but it's a bit more and it's become a big event every year, as far as television goes."

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! airs on ITV.
