Matt Hancock’s bid to win the public over has got off to a rocky start on I’m A Celebrity.
The former health secretary has already had to field some pretty difficult questions from Charlene White, while Boy George has also professed reservations about his appearance in the jungle.
Hancock says he’s entered this year’s contest to “go to where the people are“, adding that he wants people to see him for who he really is.
But if the clip below is anything to go by, that might end up backfiring quite spectacularly.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
