More tensions for Matt Hancock‘s entrance to the I’m A Celebrity jungle are to be expected after fellow campmate Scarlette Douglas’s old tweets slamming the MP resurfaced.

The TV presenter, 35, is part of this year’s star-studded line-up – alongside disgraced former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, 44, who has been shamed for his decision to turn his hand at reality television.

After Matt resigned last summer, Scarlette told Matt to ‘get out of here’ on Twitter – hinting that she will not be very happy to see him in a sleeping bag beside her while in the Australian jungle.

When the story was released by The Sun, on June 25 last year, pressure was mounting on Matt for nearly two days before he gave up his post as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, sharing the news to the public in a video on his Twitter account.

All eyes were on the MP for West Suffolk, who posted the one minute 19 second video to his 426,000 followers on at 6.16pm.

And at 6.32pm, Scarlette tweeted: ‘Good, get out of here.’

In a further interaction, one of her 20,000 followers replied, referring to her presenting role on A Place In The Sun: ‘He’ll be looking for a place in the sun now.’

But Scarlette quipped: ‘As long as I’m not his presenter!’

It comes after a video surfaced showing fellow campmate Charlene White told millions of TV viewers of her anger at rule-breaking MPs during the pandemic.

The Loose Women star and journalist was left heartbroken by her great-aunt’s Covid-19 death and was reduced to tears of sadness and anger on live TV because of the habitual rulebreaking in Government by Mr Hancock and others when her loved-one was laid to rest.

The ITV News at Ten anchor said on the Loose Women panel in January: ‘My family stuck by the rules. We had to bury family members without being able to hug each other.’

It means that a confrontation with Mr Hancock over his behaviour looks likely, with one ITV insider telling MailOnline: ‘Matt should expect a grilling from Charlene’.

There are also calls for ITV to change their mind about allowing the former health secretary to appear on the show, which is expected to land him £350,000 for charity and promote his new pandemic diary. Critics say he is ‘cashing in on Covid’.

Ms White, who took off for Australia before Mr Hancock’s involvement was announced this morning, has been outspoken about how she and millions of others ‘stuck by the rules’ of not hugging family while her aunt was being buried as Boris Johnson apologised for drinks party in No 10.

Charlene, 42, revealed she had been unable to hug her family at her great-aunt Dell’s funeral during lockdown and couldn’t hold back tears as she shared the tragic account. Her cousin Pat also became very ill with Covid-19 but pulled through.

Breaking down as she shared her account earlier this year, Charlene explained: ‘My family stuck by the rules.

‘We had to bury family members without being able to hug each other. I had to sit in a crematorium where my aunt was buried.

‘Because I wasn’t living in the same household as my brother and sister and my dad, I was in a pew by myself with my baby daughter on my lap and we were all in floods of tears.’

She continued: ‘I stood by the graveside while grave diggers were filling the grave and my cousin was in floods of tears and not being able to hug her because we’re following the rules.

‘We have a situation like this, and you think “should I have just hugged my cousin?”.’ 

Charlene’s great-aunt Dell passed away from Covid-19 at St Thomas’ Hospital in 2020.

Matt Hancock’s decision to join I’m a Celeb has upset others who lost loved ones to Covid.
