It comes just after Richard took part in the Kitchen Nightmares challenge, which saw him dive down a shoot and be drenched in mouldy fruit and vegetables as he searched for the stars.

He was left disappointed after only returning with four out of ten stars from the trail after he struggled to untie the knots. 

Richard appeared to be in good health during the trial and was seen to be laughing with the show hosts’ Ant and Dec throughout the challenge. 

An ITV spokesperson said: "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."
