Matt Hancock tackles 'terrifying' underwater task in second bushtucker trial
Matt Hancock has again had to go through with another bushtucker trial on I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here and opened up about the scandal which saw him step down as health secretary in 2021.
The Tory MP entered the jungle on Wednesday and immediately struck up a friendship with comedian Seann Walsh, who was also a late addition to the show. He also sang a little bit of Ed Sheeran, which was as cringe as it sounds.
He also did his first trial which involved him crawling around in the dark while thousands of bugs were dumped on top of him, which didn't seem to bother him too much.
Given that he'll be the prime target for every trial going forward he was then forced to do Tuesday's trial which was dubbed 'The Tentacles of Terror' and involved Hancock trying to retrieve stars from an underwater cage which was filled with all manner of beasts such as crocodiles and eels and in all fairness he managed to retrieve all 11 stars and complete the challenge.
He also briefly engaged in a conversation with Babatunde Aleshe about his affair with Gina Colangelo which resulted in him resigning from cabinet in 2021.

\u201cPeople actually starting to like Matt Hancock because he \u2018seems like an OK bloke\u2019 on #ImACeleb is exactly the kind of mindless, populist bullshit that landed us in this political disaster in the first place\u201d
\u201cMatt Hancock saying that \u201cthe best part of the trial was going back to camp to tell the campmates they\u2019re going to eat well tonight\u201d when him and his repulsive party are the reason 2.5 MILLION people need foodbanks is so so vile! What a horrendous production decision #ImACeleb \ud83d\ude35\u200d\ud83d\udcab\u201d
\u201cMatt Hancock's redemption plan is to tough it through the trials and win the stuff that make the other "celebs" happy and grateful. He wins them a facetime with a loved one or whatever. And voila, he's a selfless hero rather than an incompetent politician. All bollocks.g\u201d
