What happened to John Barrowman on I'm A Celebrity?

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, I'm A Celebrity hosts  Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby revealed John Barrowman's future in the jungle was in doubt.

The 51-year-old actor had sprained his left ankle while walking down the path to wash a pot, accompanied by Harry Redknapp.

Dec said: "John Barrowman had an accident in camp last night and was taken to hospital.

"He's fine, he's resting up but unfortunately we've had to exclude him from tonight's vote until we know whether he's able to return to camp."

Was he injured?

John was helped into the medical hut by Nick Knowles and Malique Thompson-Dwyer where he was assessed by the jungle medics who advised he went to hospital for an X ray.

His ankle has since been strapped up and although he didn’t spend the night in camp, ITV added John is still on "lockdown" as they assess his medical condition.

John sent a message to his fellow campmates to say: “I am lying here sipping champagne in a hospital with six male strippers. Continue to live jungle life as normal.

"I want to be back in there with you all soon. But please get some rest this evening. Ps I want my f****** dinner when I get back!”

Will John return to camp?

Despite fans fearing that John won't be returning to camp, producers have allowed the star to re-enter the jungle on Monday with his ankle strapped up.

An Australian source said: "He’s not a quitter and wants to see how far he can go in the competition.

"As well as finding it hard he’s relishing the challenge and loving getting to know new people.”

Producers made sure John wasn’t allowed to communicate with family, check his phone or watch TV. He was also given basic food because he missed a meal in camp.
