Matt Hancock has made his debut on I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and hosts Ant and Dec wasted no time getting a dig in there after the politician said he was an Ed Sheeran fan.

His arrival to the camp has been met with mixed emotions, with Boy George crying on camera, and Charlene White schooled the former health secretary over his decision to join the show.

The popular ITV reality series has returned for its 20th season, which is taking place in the jungle in Australia for the first time since 2019 after a two-year stint in Wales due to the pandemic. Read The Independent’s review of the debut episode – which aired on 6 November – here.

Early frontrunner Olivia Atwood was the first to exit, having been forced to drop out of the competition due to a medical matter less than 24 hours after she entered the jungle.

Earlier this week, it was Chris Moyles, Scarlette Douglas, Boy George, and Attwood (prior to her departure) who were tasked with completing the first Bushtucker trial. Viewers, however, were most impressed with Babatunde Aléshé who conquered his fear of heights in his trial the following day.

Tensions in the camp have already risen after Boy George accused Charlene White of being “controlling” after the Loose Women presenter took the lead in the kitchen.

On Wednesday (9 November), viewers finally got a look at this year’s most anticipated arrival, Hancock, who entered the jungle alongside comedian Seann Walsh.

The politician completed his first Bushtucker trial, with viewers already voting for him again to do a second on tonight’s episode (10 November).

Boy George in tears over Matt Hancock’s arrival in camp

07:02 , Peony Hirwani

Boy George was left feeling conflicted after former health secretary Matt Hancock’s arrival in the jungle.

Boy George told presenter Scarlette Douglas: “You know, beginning of the pandemic my mum was in hospital. I wasn’t allowed to see her. I thought she was going to die.

“I was tweeting Greenwich hospital going, ‘Please look after my mum.’ I used my name, I was like, ‘Please look after my mum.’ And they did, she was fine… I feel like, I don’t want to be sitting here like I’m having fun with him.”

He continued: “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.”

Wednesday 9 November 2022 13:30 , Nicole Vassell

As Matt Hancock and Seann Walsh head into the jungle, you’d be forgiven for not remembering that the original lineup also included Olivia Attwood of Love Island season three.

On the advice of the show’s medical team, she had to leave the show after just 24 hours.

But will she still get paid for participating?

“People will see me warts and all, see the human side of the guy behind the podium. I don’t think I’ve got any fears or phobias but I’m about to find out,” he added.

Why is I’m a Celeb on later tonight?

Tuesday 8 November 2022 19:30 , Nicole Vassell

Instead of its usual time of 9pm, I’m a Celebrity starts at 9.15pm this evening.

This is due to The Martin Lewis Money Show at 8.00pm having a runtime of 75 minutes, shifting the shows that follow on ITV slightly later.

However, some social media users have also noted that this 9.15pm start time also accommodates The Great British Bake Off’s finish time – convenient for fans of both!
