I'm A Celeb Bosses Release An Update On John Barrowman's Jungle Future

Fans were left devastated on Sunday night when it was announced that popular campmate John Barrowman had been removed from camp and taken to hospital. This morning, ITV released a statement giving an update on John's jungle future.

John Barrowman has to be one of our favourite campmates - from his cheery disposition and his habit of bursting into song every five minutes to the steely determination and cool-headedness with which he's faced the Bushtucker trials, he's seemed a pretty likely candidate to take this year's jungle crown. But viewers and campmates alike were left in turmoil after Sunday night's show saw him removed from camp - putting his future on the show and his chance at the jungle crown in jeopardy.

After being taken to hospital, John was controversially excluded from Sunday's vote-off - which saw Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer become the second campmate eliminated. Some viewers said this was unfair and that John should have been included in the vote-off, as he still featured in the show in pre-recorded footage. Meanwhile, others pointed out that as one of the favourites, it's unlikely that John would have been voted off anyway.

ITV have since confirmed that any votes for John will be refunded and they've also now made a big statement about his jungle future - check out the video above to find out the latest!
