FORMER Health Secretary Matt Hancock is the latest star confirmed for the new series of I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
He will be this year's latecomer as the politician, 44, will arrive alongside comedian Seann Walsh, 36, in the upcoming series.
Experts are calling it a 'sensational signing' and viewers are excited to see what drama unfolds when the controversial figure arrives.
Hancock was forced to resign after he was exposed for breaking his own lockdown rules when he had an affair in his office.
Following the news of his new telly appearance, he's had the Tory whip removed for abandoning the Commons and his Suffolk constituents.
"Matt is a sensational signing for the show as producers love a star with a story to tell – and they always hope they'll spill the beans round the campfire," said an insider.
"He's the latest in a long line of figures from the political sphere, including MP Nadine Dorries, Stanley Johnson and MP Lembit Opik," they told The Sun.
"There's been a question mark over who the twelfth campmate would be, partly because negotiations over Matt going in were so top secret. It seems Matt was a last-minute signing."
An ITV spokesperson told OMG-News.com: "We will announce the full line-up in due course."
A senior Government source told the outlet: "People are pretty shocked to be honest."
"Matt has told the whips in Parliament and he will use his time in the jungle to promote his dyslexia campaign.
"Matt has an excellent team working with him in West Suffolk, but ITV has agreed that he can communicate with them if there's an urgent constituency matter."
I'm A Celebrity 2022 starts on Sunday, November 6 at 9pm on ITV.
