Sam Thompson has revealed he’s been in hospital with a concerning photo posted to Instagram.

The Made In Chelsea star, who was crowned King of the Jungle in 2023, shared an image of an IV in his arm to his story, captioning the post ‘Not had the best Bank Holiday weekend.’

He followed up the post with another, since deleted, that explained that he was in hospital because he’s been trying to do so many things at once and it ‘caught up with him.’

While it’s unclear what affliction Thompson is suffering from, he seems to imply that exhaustion is at least a part of the equation.

The TV star is fresh off a hectic UK tour with his podcast co-host, The Only Way is Essex star Pete Wicks, in April for their Staying Relevant Tour.

Thompson has also officially joined the voice cast of the sequel to one of Disney Pixar’s most beloved films: Inside Out 2.

Thompson recently revealed that he’s been cast in one of the most anticipated sequels of the year, which also stars Amy Poehler, Maya Hawke, and Kyle MacLachlan.

He’s set to voice a new character, Security Man Sam, who joins up with Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust, as well as new emotions Anxiety, Envy, Ennui, and Embarrassment.

A statement from Thompson made it clear that he’s delighted to have a chance to appear in the film.

‘Having watched Pixar films since I was a kid, it’s a dream come true to join the voice cast of Inside Out 2. The film nods to the rollercoaster of emotions growing up and what a wild ride your teenage years can be.’

He continued: ‘I for one can’t wait to see my family’s reaction to hearing my voice on the big screen.’

Thompson, who has been in a relationship with Love Island and Strictly Come Dancing star Zara McDermott, has mostly spent his career on the British reality TV circuit, so the role is a new step for him.
