Former Health Secretary MP Matt Hancock has joined the cast of the 2022 series of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’
MP Matt Hancock, who resigned as Health Secretary last year after violating his own Covid regulations by having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo, is said to be entering the jungle as a bombshell contestant on the ITV show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! As he is appearing whilst Parliament is sitting, he has had the Conservative whip temporarily withdrawn.
Mr Hancock, 44, is not expected to join until a later date, as a surprise latecomer to the camp. A TV insider told The Sun: ‘Matt is a sensational signing for the show as producers love a star with a story to tell – and they always hope they’ll spill the beans round the campfire.’
Mr Hancock would not be the first politician to appear on the reality TV show, with previous campmates including former Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries and Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Öpik.
