Chloe Madeley addresses rumours her dad Richard is going on I’m A Celeb

Chloe Madeley has shut down rumours that her legendary TV presenter dad Richard Madeley is set to enter I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! this year.

The gym instructor, 32, was forced to address speculation that her dad would be joining her husband James Haskell , who is currently a campmate on the show, after being questioned on her Instagram story.

The Rugby star's wife shared a screenshot to her Instagram on Tuesday showing a question sent in by a follower during a Q&A.

The Instagram message read: "Is your dad going in the jungle??? You look stunning by the way."

Chloe set the record straight by making a funny statement on top of the snap, writing: "Cheers! No dad is NOT going in the jungle….

"(as far as I know, he's not very good at keeping secrets though.)"

The star, who is the daughter of TV duo Richard and Judy , also spoke to fans about James' trip Down Under and revealed how proud she was of her hunky hubby for taking on the infamous jungle show.


After being asked how she is coping without him, Chloe revealed: "Not seeing each other after years of rugby tours feels normal, but no contact WHATSOEVER has been a killer.

"Surprisingly hard to be honest. I'm so proud of him though!"

One user joked about whether or not they were foolish to bet £100 on James to win I'm A Celeb, sparking a reaction from Chloe.

She shared the screenshot to her on social media account, writing: "No! I may be a tad bias though!"


The speculation about Richard joining the jungle came after I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp host and former camper Emily Atack dropped a huge hint on last night's live spin-off show.

After speaking to TV personality Chloe about her thoughts on this year's contestants, Emily said goodbye with a hint to her dad's potential appearance.

Emily thanked Chloe and said goodbye, teasing: "See you soon! Oh, and tell your dad as well that we're looking forward to seeing him!"

Eagle-eyed fans were convinced Emily dropped a huge bombshell about the This Morning broadcaster and took to Twitter to spread their suspisions about Richard's jungle debut.

However Emily quickly nipped the rumours in the bud by tweeting: "He’s going to be a guest on the panel!"

Chloe's revelation about her dad comes after the star made a plea for the 'StrongNotSkinny' hashtag to be removed in an impassioned message on Tuesday.

She demanded "this hashtag needs to die" and insisted that while genetics are real and play a part in body transformations, they're not an excuse. 

She argued that society is "going backwards" by following the 'StrongNotSkinny' trend.
