I’m A Celeb’s Richard Madeley’s confesses to creepy ‘three in a bed’ with Judy

I’M A Celebrity star Richard Madeley has revealed how he and wife Judy Finnigan had a very creepy ‘three-in-a-bed’ encounter in Paris a few years back… with a ghost.

The Good Morning Britain presenter said: “It was really, really spooky.”

Richard revealed: “I could see what I thought was Judy sitting with her back to me on her side of the bed as if she was about to go to the loo or something – but she didn’t move.

“The moment I made a noise, this thing stood up with ridiculous speed and shot across the room.

“I thought, “Oh, holy s***’’. I was ­really shaken up. Next morning, Judy says to me: ‘Oh my God, I had the most bizarre nightmare. I dreamt that a ghost walked over my grave’.”

Madeley, 65, will be among the 10 stars entering the haunted Gwrych Castle this weekend for the ITV show.

  • Working on it

    As like last year, Ant and Dec have gone to the same lengths in consulting Welsh language advisers to make sure their jokes on I’m A Celebrity don’t offend the locals.

    Garffild Lloyd Lewis praised the presenters’ pronunciation of the language in an interview with Wales Online.

    He said: “Working alongside an English TV production has been amazing – they are really keen to learn about our culture, but more specifically our sense of humour.

    “We made it clear from the beginning that we would avoid all stereotypical humour of Wales and they completely respect that. Ant and Dec would often check with us in regards to their use of humour before making the jokes.”

  • Louise Minchin will battle secret health condition

    BREAKFAST telly host Louise Minchin will battle a secret health condition in I’m A Celebrity which turns her hands blue.

    The former BBC anchor has Raynaud’s Syndrome, which affects blood circulation to the fingers and toes.

    The mum-of-two said: “I feet the cold really badly, I have this thing called Raynaud’s Syndrome, which means my hand and feed go numb very quickly, even in supermarkets. So cold is a big thing for me.”

    Symptoms from Raynaud’s can last for hours and can be incredibly painful.

    “But I feel like if I’ve got a bikini then I’ll be able to clean more areas.

    “Like I’ll be able to get to my actual belly button, ‘cos I don’t want any fluff in my belly button.”

  • Being confrontational

    Speaking to The Sun Online Louise Minchin , the mum-of-two admitted she’s scared of creepy crawlies and tight spaces – two things which she is likely to be faced with in the coming weeks.

    She said: “There is lots I am not looking forward to. First of all, I am really not good with creepy crawlies that move fast, cockroaches in particular absolutely freak me out and spiders as well.

    “And also if I get stuck in a lift, I get panicky, so I am not good in small, enclosed spaces. So if you put those two together then that is my absolute nightmare.”

  • Naughty Boy turned down I’m A Celeb last year 

    Producer Naughty Boy turned down I’m A Celebrity last year to help care for his mum.

    The chart-topper, 36, lives with dementia sufferer Zahida and her carer but he could not bear to leave them during the 2020 lockdowns.

    He admitted: “I was gutted I wasn’t able to do the show last year.

    “These are serious people. But they are just a deterrent as people are curious.”

    Dog walker Richard Hughes, 27, said: ‘I went walking near the castle and it was sealed off with fences.””There is security. The rumour is that some of them are ex-SAS. I have heard they have night vision goggles for the woods,” they added to MailOnline.

    Garffild Lloyd Lewis praised the presenters’ pronunciation of the language in an interview with Wales Online.

  • Explained: The prize for winning I’m A Celeb

    ITV don’t pay out prize money for the winner of I’m A Celeb.

    Instead they agree a fee to be paid to each of the celebs before they enter the jungle – or castle.

    However, popular contestants have gone on to make much more money after the show has ended.

  • Last year’s trials ‘too easy’

    Last year viewers slammed the action, claiming the trials were too easy.

    Speaking from Gwyrch Castle, Executive Producer Olly Nash said: “We did set out at the beginning to make it much tougher. They are in for longer, the trials are bigger. The trials were limited last year and this time they are much closer to the Australian series in terms of scale.

    “Absolutely they are harder and bigger and there are more trials over the series than ever before and more triallists taking part. That was the learnings of having one series here.

    “We have 24 trials this year, I think normally it is closer to 20 in a full series, it is the most ever and absolutely the most celebrities taking part.”

  • Get used to the cold

    I’m A Celebrity’s Creative Director Tom Gould said: “It’s going to be incredibly exposed and cold.

    “The group dynamic in The Clink will be interesting because there is nowhere to get any space.”

  • First look inside I’m A Celebrity castle

    For this year’s I’m A Celeb, a horrifying medieval jail will house some of the stars.

    Campmates who lose the entry challenge will be slung into The Clink – an outdoor yard at Gwrych Castle imprisoned by a huge wall topped with spikes.

    And they will be forced to sleep on the floor of a stable in sleeping bags.

  • Recap: I’m A Celeb’s first winner

    In 2002, Radio DJ Tony Blackburn won the first series of I’m a Celebrity.

    He defeated the late socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and author Christine Hamilton to pick up the gong of King of the Jungle.

    A firm favourite from the start, Tony and Tara both managed to remain safe from the public vote throughout their two week stay.

    He took part in three trials during his time in the jungle – the Sneaky Snake Run (winning 2/6 stars), the spider web (winning 3/4) and the final trial with Tara, which he completed successfully.

  • Explained: Where the campmates go once voted out

    Once voted off the show it is a regular occurrence to see the stars whisked off to a luxurious hotel where they can relax.

    The hotel that they will be heading to this year is the Carden Park Hotel, a luxury country hotel near Chester, Cheshire.

    Just over an hours drive away from the castle, campmates will find themselves encapsulated within a 1,000 acre retreat, home to a spa, golf course and even a vineyard.

    The luxury hotel offers a £12million spa facility, which features a lavish outdoor champagne bar.
