LOOSE Women star and ITV News anchor Charlene White was the first camp mate to get voted out of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The 42-year-old broadcaster was voted out on this year’s series to be voted off the ITV1 show by members of the public.
Charlene told Politicalite: “It’s been a journey and I absolutely loved living with those guys – they were brilliant.”
During her time in the jungle, Matt Hancock – the former health secretary – was questioned about his affair during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reflecting on the awkward conversation, Charlene said: “I have to remain impartial as journalism is my first job.”
Matt, 44, resigned as health secretary after news of the affair emerged, and it’s something that he’s been reminded of during his time in the jungle.
Earlier in the episode, Boy George admitted that he was struggling to look past Matt’s behaviour during the pandemic.
He said: “Can’t stand Matt. I have tried to like him and I’ve failed. I find him slimy, I find him slippery.”
The 61-year-old star also confronted Matt about his frustrations.
He told the politician: “I’ll be honest with you, I think your presence has made everyone very compliant.”
Matt then said: “Compliant … it’s a funny word.”
The pop star subsequently tried to clarify his feelings.
He explained: “I have been hating on you, I have to be honest. I sometimes feel like you don’t say what you mean and you’re not particularly direct.”
The ‘Karma Chameleon’ hitmaker admitted that he struggled to draw a distinction between Matt’s political past and the man that he’s met in the jungle.
He shared: “I’m trying to separate you as a human being and you as a politician and I’m struggling with it. We don’t share the same politics.”
