Matt Hancock’s ‘feud’ with I’m A Celeb campmates ‘exposed’ just days after final

Former MP Matt Hancock appears to not be quite so friendly with his former I'm A Celeb campmates.

Matt's co-stars including Lioness and Queen of the jungle, Jill Scott, Culture Club frontman Boy George, radio DJ Chris Moyles, Loose Women panellist Charlene White and the show's presenters Ant and Dec haven't followed the former health secretary on Instagram.

The MP has followed most of his fellow campers, but he didn't quite win over all the campers after the decision to put the former Health Secretary in the jungle.

Matt told his fellow campers that he was looking for forgiveness in the jungle, but not all of his co-stars warmed to him. 

While in the camp with Matt, Boy George revealed he didn't want to seem like he was "having fun with him" after struggling under his guidance when his mum was admitted to hospital.

He said at the time: "It’s difficult for me because, you know, had something happened, if my mum had gone, I wouldn’t be here now. I would have gone when he walked in."

Boy George then took to the Bush Telegraph to share how he felt about sharing camp with the politician.

He admitted: "If I had lost my mum, I would go. I feel like, I don’t want to be sitting here like I’m having fun with him."

Similarly, while in camp, Charlene White refused to sleep in the comfortable RV alongside Matt, a reward that camp with her title as camp deputy.

On her decision, she told fellow campmate, Coronation Street's Sue Cleaver: "I’m an impartial journalist, I can’t be sharing a room with a sitting MP because that just doesn’t sit well with me impartiality wise."

Elsewhere in the program, Charlene, who works as a newscaster for ITV, questioned Matt on his decision to come into the jungle.

She said to Matt: "I can imagine it would not have gone down well at all at home? You have to expect that because parliament is still sitting, we’re not in recess, you know…?"

After she was evicted from the jungle, Charlene revealed that she feared she'd lose her job over a friendship with Matt.

"It went from me having a laugh to me constantly worrying about whether or not I could still do my job when I came out", she confessed.

Charlene continued: "I didn't want anyone to feel like I was being too sympathetic to Matt because that would jeopardise the job that I love and jeopardise my journalistic integrity."
