EXCLUSIVE: Matt Hancock’s Girlfriend reveals she’s been watching I’m A Celebrity… as she lands in Oz  

MATT Hancock’s girlfriend and former aide Gina Coladangelo has landed in Brisbane ahead of meeting the MP when he comes out of the ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ jungle, and she told Politicalite it would be “difficult not to be impressed” watching him take part in Bushtucker Trials.

The former Health Secretary was suspended by the Conservative Party for signing up for the ITV show, but his girlfriend and former aide Gina Coladangelo – who he was caught kissing during the coronavirus pandemic, breaking his own social distancing guidance – insisted the MP has “done really well” in his trials, and admitted she has been “missing him” during his jungle stint. 

She told Politicalite last night: “I have been watching the show, it would be difficult not to be impressed he has done really well.

“He is made of tough stuff, it is hard not to be impressed. But it is good they are sharing them around now.”

Asked whether being apart has been difficult, she said: “Obviously yes, I have missed him.”

Gina – who touched down in Brisbane on Wednesday – also reflected on the mood in camp, adding: “They all seem to be getting on OK.”

Matt later quit as Health Secretary after he was caught cheating on his wife with Gina and going against his social distancing guidance.

During his time in camp, the MP has been selected for numerous Bushtucker Trials, but the public gave him a rest for the last two. 

Three campmates need to volunteer for tonight’s trial, and at the end of last night’s show Matt, Mike Tindall and Owen Warner could all be heard offering their services.

Earlier this week, a banner was flown above the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ camp urging Matt to “get out” of the jungle. 

Campaign group 38 Degrees claimed responsibility for the message, which read “Covid Bereaved say get out of here”, which was on behalf of campaign group Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice UK. 

Last week on the show, Matt insisted he is looking for “forgiveness”. 

He said: “What I’m really looking for is a bit of forgiveness. That’s what I’m really looking for. We all make mistakes. I made a pretty big one.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs nightly at 9pm on ITV1 – catch up on the ITV Hub.
