John Barrowman spent the night in hospital after falling and spraining his ankle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The Torchwood star took a tumble while he was off to wash the camps pots and pans with show fave Harry Redknapp.

According to reports, he was assessed by the medical team on the show, and was then taken to hospital for an x-ray, where he spent the night.

It meant that he was excluded from the public vote, in which Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer became the second celeb to be evicted from the jungle.

Sending his love to his fellow campmates from his hospital bed, his message read: “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***ing dinner when I get back!”

He’s now back at camp, according to ITV.

A spokesperson for the show said: “John Barrowman sustained a sprain to his ankle, but is now back in the jungle.”

Barrowman is currently an outside bet to win the show, with odds of 12/1, while Harry Redknapp is hot favourite at 1/2.

The show returns tonight at 9pm.
