Matt Hancock sets up TV company following I’m A Celeb appearance | UK News

Matt Hancock has set up his own TV company following his appearances on two reality TV shows.

The former health secretary, who lost the Tory whip over his appearance on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, has already said he will stand down at the next general election.

The creation of television programming and broadcasting company Greenhazel, first reported by the Sunday People, suggests Mr Hancock hopes for more TV opportunities.

Mr Hancock is listed as the sole director of the firm which was registered with Companies House in January at an address in Newmarket, Suffolk.

The West Suffolk MP’s stint in the Australian jungle earned him £320,000 last year, of which £10,000 was donated to charity.

He also earned £45,000 for taking part in Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins on Channel 4.

Mr Hancock was health secretary for nearly three years but resigned in June 2021 after it emerged he had broken his own COVID guidance by kissing and embracing aide Gina Coladangelo in his office.

Ms Coladangelo greeted Mr Hancock when he left the jungle in third place and was by his side in the audience of ITV skating show Dancing On Ice earlier this month.

Mr Hancock’s appearance on I’m a Celeb was criticised by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and other top Tories, as well as mocked by some fellow MPs.

More than 1,000 complaints were made to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom over his participation.

Mr Hancock said he made donations to St Nicholas Hospice in Suffolk and the British Dyslexia Association from his fee, adding that the £10,000 he gave away was more than his monthly salary as an MP which is around £7,000 per month.

Records on the MPs’ register of interests also showed he had been paid £48,000 for an interview and the serialisation of his book, Pandemic Diaries, in the Daily Mail and Mail On Sunday newspapers.

Mr Hancock is due to give evidence to an inquiry into the government’s handling of the pandemic in the summer.

Matt Hancock insists viewers will see ‘the real me’ in I’m A Celeb jungle – ‘warts and all’ | Ents & Arts News

Matt Hancock has said viewers will see him “warts and all” while he is on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

The former health secretary said he hoped to show “the real me” in a short teaser clip at the end of Tuesday night’s episode.

In the video, the MP was officially confirmed as a contestant alongside comedian Seann Walsh.

“This experience will be an adventure,” Mr Hancock said.

He added: “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.”

His appearance was confirmed on social media after the show with a post on the I’m a Celeb official Instagram page.

The former cabinet minister, 44, has been widely mocked for his decision to appear on the reality TV show and has had the Conservative Party whip removed as a result.

Addressing these concerns, he said that he felt it was “actually really important” to show the public that politicians are “real people”.

Unlike the rest of the camp, Mr Hancock has been given access to his phone and laptop during his isolation so he can continue working and stay connected with constituents.

Walsh, his fellow campmate, told views that he was “in no way prepared” to enter the jungle and expressed alarm that there would be no tea or coffee in the camp.

Alluding to his appearance on Strictly Come Dancing, during which he found himself at the centre of a media storm after he was photographed kissing Katya Jones, his dance partner, Walsh said he “went on a dance show” and “didn’t go down too well on that”.

“I get the hunch I’ll be doing a trial or two,” he added.

One of the favourite’s to win the show, Love Island’s Olivia Attwood, was forced to retire from the jungle on medical grounds after one day.

Other celebrities taking part in this year’s series are: Culture Club star Boy George, TV presenter and property expert Scarlette Douglas, Lioness Jill Scott, Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver, Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, rugby star Mike Tindall, comedian Babatunde Aleshe and journalist and broadcaster Charlene White.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Wednesday at 9pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
