I’m A Celebrity star Shaparak Khorsandi has been rushed to the hospital for treatment after suffering from an allergic reaction.
The comedian and author shared the news that she has had to cancel an upcoming gig at a festival due to ending up in A&E. The star took to X, formally known as Twitter, and shared a picture of the upcoming gig, which was supposed to take place at Cheltenham Literary Festival on Tuesday 10 October.
The 50 year old captioned the picture: “I had a funny turn this morning and ended up in an A & E with a very disappointing vending machine. Gutted I had to cancel this. Forgive me if you were coming”.
Her fans were quick to send their well wishes as one fan wrote: “I really hope you are OK Shappi. Get ALL the tests and get well soon”, while another said: “Hope you are better, and I am sure your audience would understand”.
A third added: “oh that's rubbish. Very much hope you are on the mend now. (always have an emergency Mars bar in your handbag)”, while another fan wrote: “Your health is more important. Hope your OK and feeling better”.
Another added: “Hope you’re feeling brighter. Sending best wishes xx”, to which Shaparak replied and said: “Thank you, yes. Tree pollen is my new enemy x”.
Shaparak is well known for her stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2017, starring alongside Rebekah Vardy, Amir Khan, Jennie McAlpine and Vanessa White.
After an eventful series, Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo took home the crown.
Reflecting on her time on the show, Shaparak spoke about how she thought her experience was “a bit sad”.
The star said on Jay Rayner’s Out To Lunch podcast: “It was just all a bit sad. It felt like school again where, you know, I’m not one of the sporty ones. I’m not one of the pretty girls. And so I’m just a log.
“I might as well have been one of the logs for them”, she continued.
However she did take away some positives from the show as she revealed: “It gave me such a deep and renewed love for stand up comedy and the industry I work in, It took away all my career anxieties, it showed me that the other side was ghastly”.
