Danny Baker has strong thoughts on how to deal with Matt Hancock on I'm A Celebrity

Writer and radio DJ Danny Baker has given his thoughts on former Health Secretary, Matt Hancock MP, appearing on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! The politician has entered the jungle as a latecomer with comedian Seann Walsh. During their first episode, the pair will take on the Beastly Burrows Bushtucker Trial, which you can read more about here.

Offering his opinion on Twitter, Danny, who appeared on I'm A Celebrity in 2016, said: "Do not get all those saying, "Send him in for every trial!" No. He'd love that.

"Do not vote for him at all. (Like in real life) Ignore this destructive toxic creep. Then get him out first, like he never was there."

"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."

Responding to Danny's tweet, one social media user wrote: "Don’t think people who would watch this type of programme think like you do Danny!" And a second added: "I watch it and that's exactly what I'm thinking."

A third said: "Agree, but can’t deny it would be satisfying watching him chomping on a bit of anus before he goes," referring to the ITV show's infamous Bushtucker Trials.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! continues at 9pm on ITV. For more showbiz and television stories get our newsletter here.
