Biggest Im A Celeb emergencies from Gillian McKeith fainting to Richard Madeleys hospital dash

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is famed for its torturous trials and tough challenges.

The show, which began back in 2002, puts a string of famous faces through their paces each year as they endure up to three weeks living outdoors with limited food.

Some stars exit the show branding it the best experience, while others aren't so sure what to make of their time on the ITV programme.

It's not surprising that some celebs have fell ill or suffered injuries during their time on I'm A Celeb, and here we take a look back through some of the show's biggest emergencies.

Freddie Starr

Late comedian Freddie Starr flew to Australia just twelve months after undergoing quadruple bypass surgery, following a heart attack.

He appeared on the show in 2011, but his stint was cut short after he suffered an allergic reaction to a fermented egg and a camel toe.

Freddie was taking part in an eating challenge against former TOWIE star Mark Wright when he suffered the allergic reaction.

He could be seen receiving oxygen as medics treated him on the show, and was then taken to hospital for further treatment.

Lady C

In 2015, Lady Colin Campbell entered the Australian jungle and took over camp with her controversial opinions and refusal to take part in Bushtucker Trials.

She still became a fan favourite during her stint, thanks to her unforgettable character.

However, viewers were left gutted when she had to pull out of the show just four days before the final.

Lady C was removed from the camp on medical grounds, but her son Dima reassured fans that she was absolutely fine and there was no cause for concern following her exit.

Gillian McKeith

Nutritionist Gillian McKeith really left her stamp on the I'm A Celeb jungle in 2010.

She fainted on numerous occasions, after becoming overwhelmed by just the thought of taking part in a Bushtucker Trial.

During a live episode, Gillian was told she'd been nominated to complete the upcoming live trial, and she fainted just hearing the news.

While many sympathised with the star others, including her camp mates, questioned her fainting spells.

Following her collapse, Campmate Shaun Ryder said: “If that was real, so are my teeth. We get 12 meals and Gillian gets an Academy Award.”

Richard Madeley

Richard Madeley was tipped to be one of the stars of this year's I'm A Celebrity, but after falling ill he was forced to leave the famous camp.

The GMB host had just completed a trial before having to be taken to hospital to be checked over.

Fortunately, Richard was fine, but his I'm A Celebrity dream had to come to an end as he'd broken 'covid bubble' rules by visiting the hospital.

Gemma Collins

Ex-TOWIE star Gemma lasted just three days in the jungle, giving her the record for the earliest voluntary exit ever.

Minutes into her I'm A Celeb stint it was clear she regretted signing up, and after becoming completely fed up with camp life and the lack of food, she quit.

Upon exiting, Gemma famously said: "People who murder get treated better than this. That’s the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues at 9pm on ITV.
