Richard had to leave the show after breaking the 'COVID bubble'

Chloe Madeley has shared a sweet photo of her dad Richard Madeley with her hubby James Haskell after Richard was forced to leave I’m A Celebrity.

The presenter was a big favourite on the reality show, but had to leave after taking a funny turn this week.

He was taken to hospital as a precaution after becoming unwell and although he ended up being fine, his trip outside of Gwrych Castle meant he had broken the “COVID bubble” and couldn’t return to camp.

Richard is now back at home and Chloe marked his return by uploading a snap of him and James to her Instagram grid.
