Richard Madeley: Age and wife Judy Finnigan
Richard Madeley has finally joined Jeg er en kjendis… Get Me Out of Here! after years of being rumoured to appear.
The broadcaster, 65, was named as part of the initial line-up of the 2021 serie, which kicks off on Sunday (21 november).
Madeley is best known for being one-half of presenting duo Richard and Judy alongside his wife Judy Finnigan, whom he’s been married to for 35 år. They have two children.
They hosted several shows together, gjelder også Denne morgenen og Channel 4 chat show Richard & Judy.
Madeley branched off on his own to become a stand-in presenter for shows including The Wright Stuff og God morgen Storbritannia.
Speaking about his forthcoming stint on Jeg er en kjendis, Madeley said: “Up until now, I’ve always been perfectly happy watching as a viewer but recently, I realised Jeg er en kjendis is no longer just a TV programme. It’s become part of the fabric of British life and part of the countdown to Christmas.
“It suddenly hit me that everyone talks about it the next day and I wondered what it would be like to be there rather than watching. I realised the time had come to experience it.”
Madeley, who is currently the favourite to do the first Bushtucker Trial, said he “really hopes” he gets to do them.
“The thing about this programme is you mustn’t go into it if you take yourself remotely seriously," han sa. “I don’t and I am thoroughly looking forward to being covered in god knows what!
“You have to be prepared for people to laugh and I see this as a bloody great romp of fun!”
