West Suffolk MP Matt Hancock sings Queen in the Jungle Arms pub in latest I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Here! episode





Matt Hancock has survived another day in the I’m A Celeb jungle after the celebrities spend the evening in the Jungle Arms pub.

The fun-filled pub shenanigans saw the celebs singing and dancing during a karaoke segment and the West Suffolk MP delivered a questionable rendition of ‘I Want To Break Free’ by Queen.

As the episodes have progressed, more of the celebrities are having deep conversations and opening up down by the creek.

Tonight Matt opened up about his step dad’s business and the financial issues they faced during the early 1990s.

He said: “When the business nearly went bust we nearly lost everything.

"You know when you type your postcode into the internet and it brings up your address? My step dad wrote that software.

During tonight's episode, Matt opened up about his family's financial difficulties.

"We had this big client who we basically relied on in the early days and they themselves got into financial difficulties and couldn't pay their bills - so we got to the point where if we got to the end of the week without this cheque arriving from them then we were going to lose everything.

"That was pretty harrowing - I was about 14.

"When the wolf is at the door, I know how that feels."

The episode’s trial, Grot Yoga, saw Mike Tindell, Seann Walsh and Boy George tackle the not-so-meditative yoga-themed challenge.

Although Seann found the trial difficult as they were covered in offal, fish guts, rotten fruit and veg and jungle slime - they worked together to achieve a full house of eight stars.

During the episode Matt also pretended to be a galloping horse and a relaxed pigeon during the Kiosk Kev challenge - but the celebrities guessed the wrong answer and lost out on chocolate brownies.

They then cooked up a giant ostrich egg for their dinner and Matt made an ostrich egg tortilla dish which was very much enjoyed before heading to the Jungle Arms pub.

However, a trip to the pub still held its challenges and the celebs had to take part in a myriad of tasks to win 10 bar snacks, four pizzas and six portions of chips.

The episode concluded with iconic musician Boy George leaving the jungle - being the fourth celeb to be evicted.
