I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Richard Madeley has said he has “unfinished business” with the show after being forced to exit the series last year.
The journalist and presenter was taken to hospital as a precaution after falling ill during last year’s series, but as the trip meant he broke the celebrities’ COVID bubble, he was therefore unable to return to the camp.
On Monday’s (May 16) Good Morning BritainMadeley has addressed whether he would return for the long-rumoured all-stars series of the reality TV programme, set to take place in a brand new location.

“I had this funny turn, I got dehydrated as it turned out and so that meant I broke the Covid bubble as they insisted I went to hospital and they wouldn’t let me back in because of Covid, that was the only reason,” he said.
“I have to say, it does feel like unfinished business,” Madeley also said.
“On the other hand, I have a motto: ‘Never go back, just keep moving forward.’ I’m not sure,” he then added.

The season was won by former Emmerdale star Danny Miller, with Coronation Street actor Simon Gregson and singer and Loose Women panellist Frankie Bridge ranking second and third respectively.
For this year’s season, the show is getting ready to go back to Australia for the first time since the pandemic, as production was moved to Wales in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-related travel restrictions.
Back in January, hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly commented on their hopes of going back down under for the upcoming season.
“Well, the plan is the jungle,” Ant said.
“Nothing against Wales,” Dec clarified, while Ant continued: “We love Wales, but Australia is [the show’s] home and we’d like to get back there if we can.”
I’m a Celebrity airs on ITV and ITV Hub.
