Earlier on Thursday, Chloe shared a sweet message with fans reassuring them that Richard was ok, but also feeling disappointed he could no longer continue with the show.
She wrote: “Thanks for all your lovely messages. Dad is absolutely fine, we have been speaking to him all day and ultimately, he’s just livid he can’t go back into camp because of Covid restrictions.
“He did himself proud, though. He worked hard and was his calm, collected, kind and funny self.”
Jack also spoke out after Richard’s departure. He told his 1,160 followers: “Thanks so much for all the lovely messages about dad – he is absolutely fine and back to his usual irrepressibly chirpy self!
