Paul Burrell says Matt Hancock will be "humiliated" on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

The former royal butler - who appeared on the fourth series of the ITV show in 2004 - thinks the rumoured £400,000 that the MP is being paid to appear in the jungle is an "incredible fee", and he believes the huge sum has essentially been paid to "humiliate" the former Health Secretary.

Paul said: "I wish I'd been paid that much money. It's an incredible fee to pay someone to sit in the jungle to eat a kangaroo's penis isn't it?

"Somebody is paying this amount of money to humiliate him."

Paul also warned Matt - who previously came under fire after he was caught kissing his aide Gina Coladangelo amid the COVID-19 pandemic, when social distancing guidance was in place - he will have nowhere to hide once he enters the Australian jungle.

Speaking on TalkTV's 'Piers Morgan Uncensored', he added: "There's no hiding place. The Great British public will decide themselves if they like Matt Hancock or not, and my prediction is they won't.

"I don't think Matt Hancock will do himself any justice by doing 'I'm A Celebrity' because you can't hide, you can't lie. You're yourself. Everything he does will be recorded.

"I think the Great British public will love to see our Health Secretary swigging back a cockroach smoothie.

"It’ll make great television, but it won’t do him any good."

It is expected Matt and comedian Seann Walsh will head into camp as latecomers, when the series – which begins on Sunday (06.11.22) - is already underway.

The pair are set to join up with pop icon Boy George, 'Coronation Street' star Sue Cleaver, 'Hollyoaks' actor Owen Warner, former England rugby player Mike Tindall, radio presenter Chris Moyles, England Lioness Jill Scott, comedian Babatunde Aleshe, former 'Love Island' star Olivia Attwood, and TV presenters Charlene White and Scarlette Douglas in camp.
