Joel Dommett rushed to hospital after I’m A Celebrity set crashes on his head

Extra Camp host Joel Dommett has been forced off the show – after he was smashed in the head by a show sign in rehearsals.

Windy conditions in the jungle meant that props began blowing around and a wooden sign hit him in the back of the head.

A source said: “The sign hit Joel with some force and he was rushed to hospital, he needed seven stitches and has been given the day off to recover.”

Bosses hope Joel, 32, will be back on ITV2 after some rest today.

Joel said: "Unfortunately due to unforeseen windy circumstances blowing the set onto my head during rehearsals, i won’t be able to present Extra Camp this evening.

"I had seven stitches like a big brave boy and I’ll be back tomorrow.

"To be honest I’m less worried about my health and more worried that the show will be better without me.

"Half a day off school to go home and watch neighbours! Woo!"
