John Barrowman made a welcome return to the I’m A Celebrity camp in tonight’s show – but immediately got another nasty shock.
The Doctor Who star was removed from camp and rushed to hospital after suffering a serious injury.
John was walking down the path to wash a pot with former football manager Harry Redknapp when he sprained his left ankle.
There were fears that the popular campmate may not return to camp, but after a medical assessment he was allowed to return to the jungle.
While the campmates were doing a fashion catwalk, The Chase star Anne Hegerty spotted John staggering into camp.
“I feel like Hopalong Cassidy,” joked John, who was wearing an orthopaedic boot.
After getting hugs from his jungle buddies, John explained what happened on the outside while he was in ‘lock down’.
John said: "I went to the hospital, it’s a bad sprain the whole side of my left ankle is swollen.
"There are things I can’t do, I can’t go down stairs but they’ve told me to walk on it as much as I can because the more I can walk on it the better it will get."
He added: "I was hoping that my (wallaby) shank is safe from last night although I did say I bet the b******s have eaten it."
There was a bit of a nasty surprise as John quickly discovered that Malique Thompson-Dwyer had been booted out of the jungle.
The theatre star immediately raised his hands to his face and shock and asked: "Was he okay?"
In the Bush Telegraph John said: “I am back, I am glad to be back, I did not want to go, I would never have used this as an excuse or an option to leave because I would never give up on something like this.”
John then showed off his gnarly jungle cane, which he made to support his injured leg.
He said: “My own custom made cane, it’s beautiful, I love smelling wood. A piece of hard wood is so nice to smell.”
I’m A Celebrity viewers were over the moon when John returned to camp.
Taking to Twitter, one fan said: "Only @JohnBarrowman can make an entrance back into the jungle look good, even with a boot and a wooden crutch! Welcome back John!"
"John Barrowman is a national treasure and he isn’t even from our nation," added another.
A third said: "John coming back into the jungle with that stick. LOVE U BARROWMAN"
I’m A Celebrity airs tonight on ITV at 9pm
