Does Matt get all the stars
Matt Hancock has made attempts to win the hearts of his fellow campmates after an impressive first Bushtucker Trial where he won all 11 stars. The former Health Secretary has had a mixed reaction from his campmates, with many openly disagreeing with his decision to appear on the show while parliament is sitting.
Hancock, 44, was voted by the public to take part in the latest Bushtucker Trial, Tentacles of Terror. Ahead of coming into the camp with Seann Walsh, the pair completed a trial before joining the rest of their campmates and they weren’t impressed with their turnout. Seann, 36, and Matt only took home six stars leaving their fellow campmates to ration their food.
After hearing the results of the public vote, Matt admitted he knew it would be him as the celebrities urged him to put in a better showing in his later effort. Before he left camp, Boy George said: “You have to come back with every star.” Matt said: “Thanks George, I’ll do my best.” A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas added: “We need more than six you can do it.” I’m a Celebrity fans say trial isnt hard enough as Matt Hancock wins 11 stars (Image: REX) Matt said in the Bush Telegraph said: “The pressure I feel most is the pressure to get the stars. The food really matters, so that’s the thing. There’s 11 stars there, I’ve got to get as many as I can.
- I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to be but I’ll give it my best shot.” Feeling confident about the task at hand, he added: “Yesterday we got six stars and everyone was really nice about it but you could see the disappointment in their eyes.
- I’m going to try to get more than six today, that’s the pressure I’m really feeling.” Arriving at the Trial clearing, Ant explained to Matt: “This giant octopus-shaped structure is home to an assortment of underwater critters.
All you have to do is find and collect 11 numbered stars, in order, 1 to 11. During the trial the tentacles of terror will lower into the water so you’ll have to swim around a bit.” Matt replied: “I’m thinking it looks nice until you can see what I can see inside those boxes.” Matt takes home an impressive 11 stars (Image: Rex/Shutterstock) Concerned about snakes in the Trial, as he began his watery task, Ant asked him: “You must have met a few snakes in your time in Westminster.” Mid-way through collecting a star Matt responded: “Ha ha I see what you did there.” Later in the Trial, Dec tried to ask him if he was OK, but he didn’t answer, going back under water.

He told Ant and Dec: “The eels, the sea snakes, I was absolutely petrified.” Matt said of his haul: “I can’t believe it. I was so nervous.
My heart was racing. I’m really proud of myself for having pulled that off.” While Matt was on his way to camp, Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver was discussing his appearance in the Jungle with Seann Walsh and Chris Moyles. Seann said: “That man will have a very different account of what he did to what we all think happened and there will be reasons.
“I’m not justifying anything that the guy did or certainly what that government the decisions they’ve made, but f*** being in his job when that was going on.” Sue replied: “I totally, totally agree with you, but the choice after everything that happened and the impact on everybody at home and families and people in homes to make a choice to come into I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! does not sit well with me.
- He’s got constituents back at home, he’s a serving member of Parliament.” Chris said: “I’m with you Sue.” Seann in the Bush Telegraph said: “That was a bit of a sticky moment today.
- That was my first real sense of tension.
- I was like ‘oh no, I don’t know what to do.'” Matt then returned into camp absolutely buzzing with his effort and announced his 11 out of 11 victory in the Trial.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, he said: “The best bit was coming into camp. People ran back up to camp, it was brilliant.” Babatúndé said: “You’re the king right now bro, you’re the king. Wow, well done bro.” He added in the Bush Telegraph: “At the end of the day I’m proud of him.” Sue in the Bush Telegraph said: “Good on him, everyone’s very happy he nailed it, so yeah, well done Matt.” I’m A Celebrity airs every night at 9pm on STV and STV Hub.

Does Sean on I’m a Celeb have ADHD?
ITV I’m A Celebrity star Shaun Ryder has revealed that his life-changing diagnosis is the cause of some of his “nutty behaviour” in his career. In 2020, Shaun was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). He was diagnosed with the condition after two of his daughters, aged 12 and 30 – received similar diagnoses.
ADHD is a condition that affects people’s behaviour. People with ADHD can seem restless, may have trouble concentrating and may act on impulse. After finding fame as a singer in rock group The Happy Mondays, Shaun earned a reputation as a trouble-maker and prankster during the height of his fame in the late 80s and early 90s.
He was even banned from appearing live on Channel 4 after an expletive-ridden appearance on TFI Friday. READ MORE: Apple Plus TV axe popular series after just one season – leaving fans devastated Shaun said the condition ultimately led to him using drugs at the height of fame.
He told the PA news agency: “The problem stems from the ADHD. “The nutty behaviour. You have got all this energy going and you can’t focus on anything. “It’s like games at school, like football. I couldn’t play because I couldn’t understand the rules. I couldn’t get offside. I just couldn’t take in the rules.” He continued: “You want to be a bit of a superhero at school so you start getting into crime and robbing a bit of money, and the girls love you.
“Attention-seeking stuff like that because that’s the only thing you could do really that I enjoyed – getting into trouble.” Shaun said that he always knew that “something wasn’t quite right”. He added: “It’s what led me into drinking as a kid, taking drugs as a kid, getting in trouble as a kid.” Shaun – who no longer uses drugs – has developed a number of methods of dealing with his ADHD but does not take Ritalin, a common treatment for the condition, because it is an amphetamine.
