GEORGIA Toffolo has said she feels a “tiny bit sorry” for Matt Hancock on ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me out of Here.’
The 44-year-old politician served as the UK’s health secretary during the COVID-19 pandemic but is controversially taking part in the ITV reality survival show and former ‘Made In Chelsea’ star Toff, 28, – who was crowned Queen of the Jungle herself in 2017 – explained that she is trying to “compartmentalise” the situation and think about the MP in two different ways.
She said: “What I’ve been trying to do this week is compartmentalise. So I thought about Matt Hancock the MP who has abandoned his constituents, that’s that. And then I look at a campmate who has just gone in into quite a tricky situation and I think as a viewer you will always feel a little bit uncomfortable with someone being rejected and I can’t help but feel a tiny bit sorry for him.”
The ‘Celebrity Gogglebox’ star went on to add that she has noticed that Matt – who was suspended from the Conservative Party after
signing up for the show and is about to face his third consecutive bushtucker trial – is “craving likeability” and feels if she needs to “give him a chance.”
Speaking on ITV’s ‘This Morning’, she said: “But I really am being strong on this – there really are two separate thought processes for me. There the Matt who is going in there and one thing I’ve noticed about Matt Hancock is that he is craving likeability and I think when you do behave like that in a camp setting you can’t help but feel like ‘Oh, I’ve got to give the man a chance!’”
On Thursday, Matt took on the Tentacles of Terror trial and managed to collect 11 stars for himself and his campmates.
The controversial politician held his breath underwater and stuck his hand into a cage of lobsters, as he went in search of the stars.
But despite his impressive effort, Matt was still selected for the next Bushtucker Trial.
Hancock will face his third trial and join pop star Boy George when they head to a Cucaracha Cafe in scenes to be aired on Friday night.
