I’m A Celebrity 2011: Freddie Starr out of hospital, but it's not decided whether he will return to the jungle

By Gilly Ferguson 15/11/2011


Freddie Starr is out of hospital but his future on the show is unclear

I’m A Celebrity comedian Freddie Starr is out of hospital but producers are yet to decide whether he’ll return to the ITV reality show.

Freddie was rushed to hospital after taking part in a Bushtucker Trial. It’s now believed he became ill after consuming a dodgy fermented egg during a head-to-head eating competition with TOWIE’s Mark Wright.

During the task Starr, swallowed everything that was put in front of him in the ‘Greasy Spoon’ trial - including the egg, a pig’s anus, cockroach milkshake, camel toe, turkey testicle and mice tails.

Freddie beat Wright in the trial, before falling sick triumphantly returned to camp to tell his team they’d be eating well that night.

The 68-year-old comedian, who had a quadruple bypass following a heart attack last year, then complained of feeling sick and medics were called to examine him.

Medics initially diagnosed an extreme allergic reaction and he was taken by ambulance to Tweed Heads Hospital in New South Wales.

An ITV spokesman said: “Freddie is in great spirits and is keeping nursing staff –entertained.” While a source close to Freddie insisted the doctors had said it was “highly unlikely” his illness was related to his heart problems.

The foods used in the trial had all been tested on people beforehand and programme bosses claim that even the bugs are bred hygienically.

Poor Freddie, think he would of been a major winder-upper in this show!!!
Wonder if he had his stomach pumped then??
could it of been an insect or spider bite , or anything else i wonder.
i got a severe rash, and fever just from touching some tree bark once in Asia. Who knows what he could be allergic to, one of these days, someone is going to be seriously ill on this show, but I imagine that would give good viewing figurs.  Shows are going further and further, in how much more they can screen these days.
I'm liking Fatima, hope she wins.
Loose Lips, Sink Ships !!   or as they say in Jamaice, 'Mouth open, Story fly out!'
