John Barrowman Injured in the Jungle on "I'm A Celebrity"

Doctor Who star John Barrowman was absent from popular jungle-based reality television programme I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! after sustaining an ankle injury.

Competing as a contestant in the programme, Barrowman injured his ankle from a fall during a night-time trip out of camp to wash some pots.

Barrowman was initially helped into the programme's medical hut and assessed by the programme's medics, after which he was taken to hospital.

Explaining the actor's absence from the programme, host Declan Donnelly told viewers, "John Barrowman had an accident in camp last night and was taken to hospital."

After a short period of absence from the programme, Barrowman returned to viewers’ screens, eventually finishing 3rd in the competition, which concluded on December 9 after crowning football manager Harry Redknapp as the winner.
