I’M A Celeb fans can’t wait to see Owen Warner’s reaction when Matt Hancock enters the camp tonight.
Viewers are convinced the young actor will spy Matt, who viewers have petitioned to be dropped from the show, and not have a clue who he is.
The disgraced MP for West Suffolk caused huge controversy by landing a bumper deal as a late line-up entry.
He became famous during the pandemic after breaching his own lockdown rules by having an office affair, and for delaying the first lockdown which resulted in over 20,000 more deaths from Covid.
One viewer said on Twitter: “I do want Owen to question who Matt Hancock is because then he will have to try to explain himself without dropping in all the crap managed to do #ImACeleb”
Another penned: “Waiting for Owen to not have the foggiest who Matt Hancock is and try make friends with him – either that or he will put his foot in it and say what we are all thinking – don’t know which will be funnier”
One more shared a meme of a crying man and raged: “owen when he finds out how many deaths matt the rat has on his hands.”
Hollyoaks actor Owen drew a blank in Sunday’s launch episode when he was introduced to Boy George and asked the pop icon: “What’s your name then?”
And when he was told TV presenter Scarlette Douglas was “from A Place In HOAR” he asked: “Whereabouts?”
He also had no idea who Sue Cleaver was – despite her being a veteran soap star in rival Coronation Street.
It is estimated Hancock will be paid at least £350,000 to appear on I’m A Celeb – with fans set to see him screaming in fear in his first gruesome challenge tonight.
Despite the public outcry, the show’s hosts had remained silent on his appearance – until now.
Taking to their Instagram Live after last night’s show, Ant, who swerved away from making a snap judgement, said: “I think a lot of people are going to be screaming at the telly.
“But I don’t know the man so let’s wait and see.”
Matt and Seann Walsh were teased at the end of Tuesday’s show before they made their way into a separate camp today.
