Richard Madeley has been rushed to hospital after falling ill overnight in the I'm A Celebrity camp.
The star was attended to by medics at Gwrych Castle where the ITV series is filmed.
The insider added that Richard was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure, but is now 'on the mend. '
An ITV spokesperson told the Mirror : "Richard was unwell in the early hours and was immediately seen by our on-site medical team.
He's since been taken to hospital as a precaution, the health and safety of our campmates is our priority."
richard had to take on the castle kitchen nightmares challenge in which he had to find a series of stars to feed the camp in a hellish kitchen setting full of bugs and critters.
To add to the difficulty, as well as having to avoid spiders and rats, Richard also had to dive down a rubbish chute full of rotten fruit and vegetable and fish guts and untie stars from a rope to win each campmate a meal.
While he only managed to get four stars for the camp, Richard had presenters Ant and Dec laughing throughout with his cheeky innuendos.
Recently, Richard's wife Judy Finnigan also cheered him on, sharing a sweet family photo.
