MATT Hancock has infuriated I’m A Celebrity fans with his latest admission on the show.
During the latest episode disgraced politician Matt was chatting to fellow campmate, comedian Babatunde Aleshe about his affair scandal during the Covid outbreak, which HOAR exclusviely revealed last year.
The 44 year old former Health Secretary said: “I messed up and I ’fessed up. I resigned and it’s no excuse but I fell in love, right?
“That also had a lot of other consequences, obviously.”
However his comments have not gone down well at all with furious fans at home who have been left seething at the remarks.
Taking to Twitter to air their thoughts, one disgruntled viewer revelaed that Matt’s admission had left them feeling ‘unwell’, writing: “I have never watched #ImACeleb not because I dislike reality tv (we all know I love it) but because bugs and Ant’n’Dec make me nauseous.
“But I just saw that “I messed up. But I fessed up” clip and I feel disturbed. Disgusted. I am chilled to the bone. I am unwell.”
Another added: “Hancock saying I messed up then fessed up. All about his mistress. NOT ABOUT THE COVID DEATHS AND PPE CONTRACTS FOR YOUR MATES.”
A third viewer raged: “What a p****** “I fell in love, right?” “I messed up but I fessed up, right?”. Absolutely howling at Matty Hancock but sort of can’t deal with it at the same time – it’s a bit like when the office first came out, very similar sense of tragicomedy.”
A fourth penned: “‘I messed up and I fessed up’. Matt Hancock is a walking ick .”
As a fifth shared: “‘I messed up and i fessed up’ Well actually, you only confessed cause you got caught out but okay x.”
It isn’t just the viewers at home who have had their feathers ruffled by Matt as many of his fellow campmates have also let it known how they feel about his presence in the camp.
Comic Seann Walsh, 36, said: “That man will have a very different account of what he did to what we all think happened and there will be reasons.
“I’m not justifying anything that that guy did or certainly what that government, the decisions they’ve made, but f*** being in his job when that was going on.”
Sue replied: “I totally, totally agree with you but the choice after everything that happened and the impact on everybody at home and families and people in (care) homes to make a choice to come into I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! does not sit well with me.
“He’s got constituents back at home. He’s a serving member of Parliament.”
Later, Scarlette Douglas, 32, told the MP: “It was hard. A lot of people had difficult times. And then to see that people that had kind of set the rules had then broken them, I think was a big slap in the face for everyone.”
