I’m A Celebrity 2022: Matt Hancock retches as he is forced to eat camel penis, sheep vagina, and cow’s anus during eating trial – and is selected AGAIN for tomorrow’s ordeal even after asking for forgiveness over his affair scandal
Matt Hancock was seen dry heaving as he tucked into camel penis, sheep vagina and cow’s anus during the infamous, gruesome eating trial on Friday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The former Health Secretary, 44, was voted to take on the La Cucaracha Café challenge alongside Boy George, 61, who threatened to quit the show this week after the politician arrived in camp.
MP for West Suffolk Matt said before heading into the challenge area: ‘I’m so glad to be doing it with someone else. It just lowers the pressure a bit,’ while George told hosts Ant and Dec that he was ‘pretty hungry’.

The pair were told they could pass on a dish but they would not be able to go back, and if they uttered the words ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’, they would not be allowed to continue but their partner would.
Matt’s first dish was Fish Eye Tacos, with the government employee being tasked with eating one, which contained three raw fish eyes.
He looked shocked as he chewed the fish eye which popped as he bit down on it in his mouth.

As George bit into an enchilada, nicknamed Stenchilada, packed with vomit fruit, George told Matt: ‘It’s a good time to tell you I’ve never voted Tory,’ before Matt was tasked with eating a sheep’s vagina.

Since his controversial arrival in the Australian jungle, Matt has already undertaken three Bush Tucker trials – with viewers expected to continue voting for the MP.
The camp erupted into laughter when hosts Ant and Dec announced that Matt would be doing his third trial, with the cast expecting that the father-of-three will be a target for the voting public.
Tough talk: Elsewhere, Matt received a grilling from his fellow castmates about his controversies during the COVID-19 pandemic during Friday’s I’m A Celebrity
Matt won all 11 stars in Tentacles Of Terror and also competed with Seann Walsh, 36, during Beastly Burrows, where they earned six meals for camp.
Elsewhere, Matt received a grilling from his fellow castmates about his controversies during the COVID-19 pandemic during Friday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
The former health secretary, 44, struggled to contain his emotions as he apologised to camp for having an affair with Gina Coladangelo, which saw him break his own guidance, lose his job and cause the collapse of his 15-year marriage to wife Martha.
But Loose Women’s Charlene White, 42, wasn’t having any of it, telling the politician her aunt had died from the virus and that she hadn’t been able to visit her in hospital due to the rules he had set in place – before disregarding them himself.
It all began when Chris Moyles asked Matt: ‘What’s the plan, come out of here, write a book?’
Matt said: ‘I’ve just finished a book – Pandemic Diaries. Does what it says on the tin.’
Difficult: Despite Loose Women’s Charlene White telling Matt her aunt had died during the pandemic, she gave Matt a hug when he got emotional over his mistakes
Chris asked: ‘How warts and all is it?’ Matt replied: ‘Totally. Tells the story straight. Needs telling. Also, there’s going to be an inquiry. That will tell the story straight as well.’
Jill Scott said: ‘Tucker trials practise for your big trial?’ Chris laughed: ‘Jill Scott – grilled by a Lioness.’ He then asked Matt: ‘You got a lockdown fine, didn’t you?’
Matt said: ‘No, of course I didn’t. No, I did not. I didn’t break any…’
Charlene said: ‘You were socialising with someone outside of your household.’ Matt said: ‘I didn’t break any laws. Guidance is different.’
Scarlette Douglas continued: ‘So there’s a rule and there’s a law.’ Matt said: ‘Guidance is guidance. But the problem was it was my guidance. That’s why…’
Scarlette said: ‘Why did you break your own guidance?’ Matt replied: ‘Because it was a mistake, because I fell in love with somebody.’
Matt, in the Bush Telegraph, said: ‘In a way, lots of the campmates asked questions that the public have got as well and it’s only respectful to just give completely straight and truthful answers.’
Tough to forgive? While Charlene said: ‘For some people, sorry just doesn’t cut it,’ she said giving him a hug felt like ‘the human thing to do’
Scarlette continued: ‘But you did it anyway?’ Matt said: ‘That’s why I apologised for it. I feel very… It’s that kind of, you just do it and then afterwards it’s like, “Oh I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”
Matt said: ‘No, because it’s bigger than that.’
Charlene added: ‘It’s massively bigger than that. My aunt died from Covid in the first wave. So, we couldn’t go to the hospital to go and visit her. I had to sit by myself in the church at her funeral. We couldn’t hug each other because we were following guidance. And I get that you fell in love, I understand all of those things, but sorry for a lot of families like mine doesn’t really cut it.’
Matt said: ‘Yeah. Well, there you go. That’s one of the reasons that I regret it as much as I do.’
Charlene asked: ‘Do you have regret regarding the way that as Health Minister you dealt with the pandemic as a whole?’
Grilling: The pair discussed Matt’s decisions during the pandemic, which prompted Matt to say he almost broke down into tears
Matt said: ‘So the pandemic as a whole no, I’m much, much more robust in my defence of it.’
Charlene asked: ‘Even when PPE, with carers and with old people’s homes…?’
Matt said: ‘So PPE for instance, I know, of course I saw what happened to it, but that’s because we suddenly needed masses more PPE and so did everybody else in the world. And care homes… There were reasons for the decisions that were taken and ultimately those problems were caused by the virus, not the people who were trying to solve the problem.’
Charlene, in the Bush Telegraph, reflected: ‘It was a lot but you tend to get the best out of people when their guards are down and they feel safe.’
Chris said: ‘We were liking you on the telly on the daily briefings.’ Matt replied: ‘Thanks.’
Chris said: ‘You were articulate and human. And I think that’s why a lot of people felt let down a bit. I’m like, ahh… you b***end, why couldn’t you have just been like [Matt: ‘Just got to the end.’]. Yeah… but look, tomorrow is another day.’
Regroup: Radio DJ Chris Moyles and Charlene were seen talking about what Matt had said when he was out of earshot
Sue added: ‘I think we’ve covered everything, we should stop. What I do appreciate is that you did eat a sheep’s vagina for us. And life isn’t black and white and we are all fallible and we all f*** up.’
Sue, in the Bush Telegraph, added: ‘It was the elephant in the room, wasn’t it? I was glad that he said it and a line should be drawn beneath it and the elephant has departed.’
Matt said to Charlene: ‘Do you know what it is actually, what I’m really looking for is a bit of forgiveness, that’s what I’m really looking for.’
Sue said: ‘Well done, that’s great. Just say that.’ Scarlette said: ‘I nearly cried then.’ Matt replied: ‘So did I.’
Chris, in Bush Telegraph, said: ‘Honestly, the way I feel now is he’s pulled the mask slightly off his chin a little bit but I still think he’s not telling us the full truth.’
Matt said: ‘We all make mistakes. I made a pretty big one.’ Charlene hugged him. Sue said: ‘The humanness has come out now.’
Cagey: Chris, in Bush Telegraph, said: ‘Honestly, the way I feel now is he’s pulled the mask slightly off his chin a little bit but I still think he’s not telling us the full truth’
Charlene added in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Well, you could have blown me down with a feather, that was not what I was expecting at all. It is a very human reaction when you can see that someone is getting upset to give them a hug.’
Sue added: ‘That took balls Matt to say that’ and hugged him. Matt in the Bush Telegraph said: ‘I wasn’t really expecting it, but it did get very emotional.’
Afterwards, Chris said to Scarlette: ‘It was the last thing he said, “I think I’m here for forgiveness.” Then, I wanted to go, “Forgiveness for what Matt? What are you sorry for? Are you sorry for being caught? Are you sorry for having an affair? Are you sorry for making bad decisions? Are you sorry for lying? What? What?”
‘If you’re going to be real, be real. I’m trying to be as real as I can and when I think he’s not being real it’s bugging me and I don’t know why. We’ve all made mistakes and you put your hands up and you’re honest. If you’re at that point where you genuinely feel that bad, you go, I’m sorry and you take it, I’m sorry.’
Chris continued: ‘He’s trying to portray that he’s being totally honest and it’s eating away at me.’
Oops! Earlier in the show Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver was left red faced for ‘slagging off’ Boy George after accusing him of stealing her towel
Scarlette said: ‘We have to just take him at face value in here. Outside of here, probably not going to be friends with you, but in here we’ll work together as a team.’
Chris added: ‘It’s a real struggle.’
Matt previously admitted he had ‘blown up every part of my life’ after he was caught on CCTV cheating on his wife with married aide and millionaire lobbyist Gina against the door of his Whitehall office in June last year.
He lost his job when it emerged they were seeing each other despite her being his aide and them breaking social distancing rules that he had created.
Earlier in the show Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver was left red faced for ‘slagging off’ Boy George after accusing him of stealing her towel only to find he had folded it up for her.
It seems tensions are rising for the celebrities in their first week in the jungle as the 59-year-old soap star jumped to conclusions when she couldn’t find her towel in the sixth episode of the series.

But besides George, other campmates have noticed that they have to be careful ‘not to feel the wrath of Sue’ after Matt Hancock left a bowl full of water and shaving foam in the dunny.
In the morning, Sue said: ‘Right, where’s my towel gone? I can’t find my towel anywhere. If George has nicked it, he’s a dead man, I’m telling you. If George has nicked my dry towel, he’s a dead man.’
George meanwhile was chanting in the jungle – but fellow campmate Mike asked: ‘Are you OK Sue?’, and Sue told him: ‘No, I’m not Mike, someone’s stolen my towel!’
From the dunny, Sue called to Boy George: ‘George! You haven’t seen my towel have you?’
Much to Sue’s surprise, Boy George replied: ‘Yes, I folded it by the bed. I folded it because I took it off where it was drying.’ Sue replied: ‘Oh… thank you.’
Chance: Sue also told the story of how she met her birth mother for the very first time, following a chance encounter with her husband at an audition when she was in her early 20s
Admitting her error to Charlene she laughed: ‘I’ve been slagging him off, “Bet George has nicked it”.’
In the Bush Telegraph, Sue confessed: ‘Boy George had folded it up for me… But I am standing by the fact that if something is taken, it’s usually George.’
Continuing her morning routine, Sue said to Mike: ‘Matt’s left all his crap here from shaving. He’s come up here, he’s shaved, he’s left all his crap in the bowl, he’s left the head of his shaver, look! Tell him when you go back.’
Mike said: ‘I connect really well with Sue because she’s a no-nonsense lady who says what she feels. I like that, it’s no reading between the lines a lot of the time. It’s straight in front, which is quite nice.’
Back in camp, Mike said to Matt: ‘Sue wasn’t happy you left all the water in the bowl. The shave water in the bowl. Warning, before Sue gets mad.’
Surprise: She explained: ‘It was when I was at drama school, I was about 22/24 and Royal Exchange were looking for little tiny parts for Oedipus’
Seann added: ‘You’re going to feel the wrath of Sue.’
Sue returned to camp announcing: ‘Matthew…’, and Matt already knew what to say: ‘I’m so sorry, I left a bowl full of water.’
Sue explained: ‘You left a bowl full of water with shaving foam in, you also left the head of your razor and the wrapper. Litter in the jungle. I’ve done it this time…’
Matt responded: ‘You won’t be doing it again.’
Sue also told the story of how she met her birth mother for the very first time, following a chance encounter with her husband at an audition when she was in her early 20s.
She explained: ‘It was when I was at drama school, I was about 22/24 and Royal Exchange were looking for little tiny parts for Oedipus.’
Sue explained when she walked in, an actor said: ‘Oh my god, she’s the absolute double of my wife when I met her.’
Shocked: Scarlette Douglas was unable to contain her surprise at hearing Sue’s story of her chance meeting
He then asked Sue her date of birth. Sue explained he then asked: ‘Oh, so where were you born?’
Sue continued: ‘And I went, “Barnet.” He rung his wife and he said, ‘I’ve found her.’
Scarlette Douglas reacted: ‘What!’ while Jill Scott added: ‘Nah, that has just given me goosebumps!’ and Babatúndé Aléshé said: ‘That’s spooky! That’s mad.’
Sue continued: ‘It’s uncanny and I’ve got two half sisters who are all in the business.’
Jill said: ‘That is the most incredible story I think I’ve ever heard.’
Sue concluded: ‘It’s lovely because my mum and my birth mother, we’ve all met, been out for dinner, we’ve all kept in touch, so we’ve all had lovely relationship ever since, so it’s a nice ending. I’m very lucky.’
Meanwhile, Mike TIndall’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! campmates failed to remember what number in line to the throne his wife Zara is during Friday night’s episode.
Blunder: Mike Tindall’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! campmates failed to remember what number in line to the throne his wife Zara is during Friday night’s episode
Mishap: Despite completing the game, they failed to name Zara as 20th in line to the throne, instead saying she was 17th (pictured together in June 2022)
Success: Mike and Babatunde completed the Whack-a-Mole task but failed to answer the questions correctly to win a prize for their campmates
Fun and games: They were tasked with hitting a mole with a giant hammer during the task on Friday night’s episode
The former rugby player, 44, was tasked with taking on the latest Deals On Wheels challenge, Whack-A-Mole, which involved them answering questions correctly in order to win a treat for camp.
However, despite completing the game, they failed to name Zara as 20th in line to the throne, instead saying she was 17th, meaning they did not receive the treat.
On Thursday night’s show, Matt admitted that he ‘messed up and fessed up’ to his lockdown rule-breaking affair, where he was caught kissing Gina Colandangelo, 45, in his ministerial office last year.
Speaking for the first time about the famous clinch, he 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.’
Comedian Babatunde Aleshe, 36, told Matt, ‘You didn’t just “fall in love”, you were grabbing booty bruv!’ before the politician replied, ‘Oh give over.’
Matt, whose romance with Gina ended his 15-marriage to estranged wife Martha, said seeing his girlfriend at the end of the red bridge will be ‘the best thing about being kicked out the jungle.’
Funny? The camp erupted into laughter when hosts Ant and Dec announced that Matt would be doing his third trial, with the cast expecting that the father-of-three will be a target for the voting public
