Richard had to leave the show after 'breaking a Covid bubble'

I’m A Celebrity fans have said Richard Madeley should be able to return to the castle since the campmates have been removed.

ITV confirmed on Saturday that this weekend’s shows were cancelled after Storm Arwen halted production.

He suffered a ‘funny turn’ in the early hours of Thursday morning (November 25) and went to hospital as a precaution.

However, because he had broken his “Covid bubble” by going to hospital, he couldn’t return to the castle with his campmates.

What did fans say?

Now, fans of the programme asked why he can’t return since the other campmates have left the castle.

One person said on Twitter: “Wait hold on. If the campmates can go back into the castle after it’s safe from the storm, why can’t Richard?”

Another wrote: “So if they are put in a hotel over weekend and go back in why can’t Richard after hour half in hospital?”

A third added: “If campmates have left does that mean Richard can return – as there must have been other social bubbles broken in doing this?”

However, one viewer pointed out: “The celebs remained in their bubble Richard didn’t.”

Another added: “They have gone back to where they were self isolating meaning it is in the bubble still.

“Richard went out of the self isolating bubble and the castle bubble.”

Meanwhile, it comes after ITV confirmed the campmates were removed from the castle and into quarantine.

A statement read: “Whilst we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle.”

When will I’m A Celebrity be back?

ITV hasn’t confirmed when the show will definitely be back on air, but it’s expected to return on Monday night (November 29).
