First look: Matt Hancock takes on his first Bushtucker Trial!
Former Health Secretary, Matt Hancock is entering the I'm A Celebrity jungle and tonight he takes on the 'Beastly Burrow'.
Outlining his reasons why he decided to finally accept an offer to take part in this year’s series, Matt says he is hoping to dispel misconceptions about what politicians are really like. And he stresses he would never have said yes without the reassurance that he would be notified if there was an emergency in his constituency.
He said: “Lots of people have a view on me from being Health Secretary in the pandemic dealing with some very difficult issues, but that’s not the whole story. I am looking forward to throwing myself into it all like I do everything in life. You can’t hide anything in the jungle,you see somebody warts and all.”
Matt Hancock will make his jungle debut in tonight's episode with fellow new campmate comedian, Seann Walsh.
