Matt Hancock will not be facing the next Bushtucker Trial on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.'

The 44-year-old politician - who served as the UK's Health Secretary during the COVID-19 pandemic - is currently taking part in the jungle reality survival series and has so far taken part in six consecutive trials to win food for his campmates, but the public has now decided that comedian Babatúndé Aléshé, radio star Chris Moyles and pop icon Boy George will all face Angel of Agony on Tuesday's (15.11.22) episode.

Following the announcement made by Ant and Dec that Matt would not be taking part in the trial, the campmates cheered and when Boy George learned of his fate he exclaimed: "Well, at least there's three of us!"

Earlier in the show, Matt - whose streak of six consecutive trials is beaten only by 'Coronation Street' actress Helen Flanagan's total of seven in a row in 2013 - was placed underground in a coffin battling with snakes to win stars for camp and came away with a total of seven but could "sense" that his co-stars were wanting to have a go.

He said: "I don't know why [they keep voting]. It's become part of my morning routine. You get up, you brush your teeth, you have a shave, do a trial, and go back for lunch. Sometimes they get me to do a challenge as well. Nobody has said that they want to do one instead, but you can sense it.

Elsewhere on Monday's episode, 'A Place in the Sun' presenter Scarlette Douglas and 'Hollyoaks' star Owen Warner took part in the Deals on Wheels in an attempt to win extra treats for camp.

The pair were challenged with counting up cash from eight currencies and working out their respective currencies but failed to complete the task in time - marking a first in the show's history - meaning that the camp did not get a trivia question via a phone call that would have unlocked a luxury.

Upon returning to camp, Scarlette told her co-stars: "Do you know why you didn't get a phone call? Because we didn't complete the challenge in the right time. We're absolutely devastated and we're so sorry!"
