Matt Hancock has arrived in the jungle. How do you think he’s doing?

Looking shifty: Matt Hancock has fled the scandals of the UK for the bushtucker trials of Australia. Out of the frying pan, into the fire?

After all the controversy about him going, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock has arrived in the Australian jungle to take part in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

Before he appeared on screen, we were told he had a good reason for wanting to go – but few of us had any interest in accepting it:

Hancock is remembered as the ‘Death’ Secretary, whose failures as a government health minister led to the unnecessary deaths of many thousands of people.

This was hammered home to viewers when fellow participant Boy George said his mother had been seriously affected by Covid and that, when he had seen Hancock walk into camp, he had seriously considered walking out.

And he wasn’t the only campmate to have strong feelings. You can see and hear him recounting his story at the end of the following clip – after the others all air their grievances:

Here’s a little clip studying the scandals Hancock has left behind – including the scandal of him going in:

As I write these words, we’re about to see him do a bushtucker trial, after being voted into it by the viewing public. I have a feeling we’re going to see him do many more.

Personally, I’m looking forward to the eating trial. Kangaroo testicles and alligator anus, anyone?
