Chloe shared a message with fans after Richard's exit

"Thanks so much for all the lovely messages about dad – he's absolutely fine and back to his usual irrepressibly chirpy self!

"Gutted to him – he was doing so well and just loving it. We're so proud and watching him each night this week was one of the funniest things I can remember."

He ended his message by adding: "Cheers to the ace @imacelebrity crew for giving him (and us) such a laugh over the last few days. And good luck to all the other celebs and their fams watching nervously at home. Well jel – seriously x."

Before his exit, an ITV spokesperson for the show said of Richard: ""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."
