Has Richard been on I’m a Celebrity before?
Although Richard Madeley has not been on the official I’m a Celebrity lineup before, he has featured on ITV2’s Extra Camp as a guest star. During the show he took part in a few trials, one of which was lying down in a coffin with snakes, so he should be more than ready to face the Welsh castle.
