James Haskell: 'We might struggle' I'm A Celebrity star's wife reveals health worries

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star James Haskell, 34, is a retired rugby player, but recently found a love for martial arts. His wife Chloe Madeley, 32, has said his drastic weightloss from the jungle may have an affect on his fights next year.

Richard and Judy’s daughter highlighted that James had gone from a 4,000 calorie a day diet to just 700 in the jungle.

Being a part of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, James and his fellow contestants have been living off a basic diet of rice and beans and an animal-based meal for dinner, depending on the stars that are won in challenges.

In recent episodes, James has been allowing some of his campmates to have more food than him out of respect.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “He’s being very selfless and letting other people have seconds before him, but I am watching him going, ‘Come on, get in there, get some food in you’ I’m a bit worried.

“He has lost more weight than the others but he had a lot to lose, there are reasons why this would be the case.”

On when he leaves the camp, she added: “He will want to be straight back on the weights when he comes out.

“He has got some big fights coming up next year so he has really got to make sure he gets back into training and we are going to have to overfeed him for a while and I think we might struggle.”

She added: “It is hard when you have been on a starvation diet for so long to throw yourself into it.”

She replied: “[Crying with laughter emojis] Because we share the same agent and he knows to keep me in likes.”

The personal trainer was also asked if James had managed to smuggle in any food to the camp.

An Instagram user commented: “Is James really surviving on that little food or do you reckon they sneak extra stuff in?”

“Nope, that’s it,” she clarified.
