Josie Gibson shares fears of This Morning return after being rushed to hospital

Josie Gibson rushed straight to hospital after the Jungle

This Morning’s Josie Gibson has detailed a serious health issue that saw her hospitalised following her stint on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. Speaking on Loose Women the presenter revealed that she ended up in A&E after becoming unwell on the flight home from the jungle.

She told the panel that she started to have difficulty breathing and headed to the casualty department to be seen by doctors. “I was on the plane home and I just began to feel really unwell, I was shivering and when I got back I had severe tonsillitis,” she confided.

“I couldn’t breathe so I got taken to hospital on Friday and they put me on a drip and gave me loads of steroids to bring the swelling down so I could breathe again, it was a bit touch and go whether I could have made This Morning so I just want to thank everybody who works in the RUH in Bath.

The 38-year-old mum of one was the last women standing in the jungle reality show and narrowly missed out on a place in the final. She ultimately came fourth finding herself eliminated the night before the deciding episode.

She finally returned to her presenting role on This Morning last Monday, December 18. However, some viewers branded her return “over the top”.

During the episode, Josie entered the studio wearing a silver sequin pencil skirt, a white fitted jumper and a hat similar to the one she wore in the jungle.

The host was cheered and called the show’s Queen of the Jungle as she hugged and kissed her colleagues who were lined up waiting to greet her.

She gave co-host Craig Doyle a huge hug and told him she’d missed him before she had to sit down on her very own throne.

Before Josie sat down, she told Craig: “I have missed you so much. I wasn’t the winner, but thank you

Craig replied: “Well you are our winner, and Oh my God, it is so good to see you.” Josie gushed in response: “It is so good to be back, I can’t even describe it to you.”

He then pretended there was a cockroach on her shoulder, which left the mum-of-one panicking. “Don’t, I still have nightmares now,” she exclaimed as the show got underway.

While Craig and the team were thrilled to have Josie back, many ITV viewers felt her welcome back segment was “over the top” and took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to make their feelings known.

Loose Women is on ITV and ITVx weekdays at 12.30pm.
