Richard Madeley hints hed return to Im A Celebrity but not in freezing Wales

Richard Madeley has said he would return to I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! – but only in Australia.

The TV star was a contestant on the current series which is based in Wales, but was forced to leave when a precautionary trip to hospital when he was unwell meant that he had broken the "COVID bubble" and couldn't go back to camp.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Richard suggested he would think about giving the reality show another whirl.

"It would depend on them asking me, and God I've only just come out!" he said.

"Never say never, I'd certainly consider it," he added.

However, Richard admitted he wouldn't be in a hurry to return to the cold climate in Gwrych Castle, where the show has been set for the last two series because of the coronavirus.

"Done that, been there," he told presenters Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid.

"I'd go where it's warm. If you get chucked in The Clink, as we were in the castle, it was freezing. We were actually shivering – whereas in the jungle at least it's warm."

Richard, 65, also confessed that he'd thought the programme was a "game of pretend" and that there was nicer food and cosier beds when the cameras weren't on them.

But he discovered that was not the case.

He said: "When the five of us got chucked into Castle Clink, we all thought they show us this and when we've done that they'll say, 'Anyway, here's your food and here's your beds' – it was a game of pretend and there's a behind the scenes, but there's not."

I'm A Celebrity is set to return to TV screens tonight (Tuesday) after being called off because of Storm Arwen.

The live portions of Friday night's show were cancelled and replaced with pre-recorded segments because of the storm, then the weekend shows and Monday night's instalment were also axed because the set had suffered some damage.

But now the celebs are set to make their ITV return – and with it comes the return of Bushtucker Trials, challenges, and the dreaded public vote.
