I’m A Celebrity new feud revealed as Matt Hancock bans popular star from his book launch after the jungle


A NEW I’m A Celebrity feud has been revealed after Georgia Toffolo was “punished” for criticising Matt Hancock.

The former Queen of the Jungle said she’s been BANNED from the former health secretary’s book launch after her scathing rant on This Morning last week.

Georgia – known as Toff – gave her reaction to Matt being paid £400,000 to go on the ITV show after HOAR exposed his Covid rule-breaking affair with aide Gina Coladangelo.

She claims it didn’t go down well with Matt’s staff, telling hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “This will make you laugh.

“My friend in Westminster told me that I was on the guest list for his big book launch in a couple of weeks, but after that I’ve been scrapped off.”

He added: “I’m walking the dog that night anyway… It really made me giggle. I wouldn’t have gone.”

Toff – who found fame on Made in Chelsea before winning I’m A Celeb in 2017 – was played back her comments on Matt from last week.

She said on This Morning: “Normally I’m pretty soft on the Tories, but I do think this is disgraceful.

“The man who was in control of our health going through this pandemic, not only did he cheat on his wife and get caught, he’s now leaving his constituents to go to Australia to earn loads of money and flaunting it in front of people who lost so many loved ones and went through the mot horrific pain.”

Today she returned to the daytime show and admitted she is warming to the disgraced politician.

After Holly played back her earlier comments, Toff said: “I think it’s OK to feel all of that, and millions of people over the country feel and felt the same way I did.

“The country are watching him in the jungle and thinking, the show does humanise people.

“It is quite tricky watching someone be given so many traumatic thing and doing it with gusto with a smile on his face and doing incredibly well. He’s also craving this likeability.

“It’s quite hard not to do – I’m not going to call it a screeching U-turn – but to just think, actually, he might be doing alright.” 

Matt’s “inside story of the pandemic” will be published later this year.

The book will “offer an honest assessment of the lessons we need to learn for next time – because there will be a next time”, the publisher said.
