Piers Morgan has led the comments on Matt Hancock’s bombshell I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! debut, and labelled his teaser clip as “literally vomit-making”.
Matt, 44, and comedian Seann Walsh, 36, were announced to be heading into camp on Tuesday night’s episode, with viewers being able to see the moment they meet their fellow campmates on Wednesday evening.
Ahead of them making their way to camp, I’m A Celeb fans were shown teasers of both Matt and Seann discussing their reasons for going on the show, and people were left far from impressed with Matt’s as he said he wants people to see the "real me".
In the VT, the 44 year old politician said: “This experience will be an adventure. When I’m in camp people will just see the real me.
"Survival in the jungle is a good metaphor for the world I work in. People will see me warts and all. See the human side of the guy behind the podium. I don’t think I’ve got any fears or phobias, but I’m about to find out."
Comedian and radio host Matt Chorley reshared the clip on Twitter alongside the comment: “Don’t have nightmares”.
Piers then reshared his tweet, making his own observations about the politician's arrival.
Other I’m A Celeb viewers have since echoed similar sentiments to Piers'. One person wrote of the teaser clip: “Abominable. And not in any fun way. Just horrendous.”
“Gruesome- hope Jill Scott gives him the same treatment she gave the ref in The Euros final,” someone else quipped.
“There's something so sleazy about him!” added another, while a fourth penned: “God he makes my skin crawl!”
While Matt has received some criticism for heading onto the show – including by new PM Rishi Sunak – the former Health Secretary insists that he’s had “lots of support”.
He said in a final interview ahead of his jungle debut: "I informed the Whip and I gave my reasons. I have had a lot of supportive messages from people who can see what I am trying to do to show that politicians are people too."
Matt added: “I don’t expect to serve in Government again but there are lots of ways you can communicate and engage with people.
"When I got approached to take part, I did think long and hard about it but one of the reasons that I felt able to say yes was because the IAC team have put in place a system so I can be reached at any point on any urgent constituency matters.
"Lots of people have a view on me from being Health Secretary in the pandemic dealing with some very difficult issues, but that’s not the whole story. I am looking forward to throwing myself into it all like I do everything in life. You can’t hide anything in the jungle, you see somebody warts and all."
