Matt Hancock parties at Jingle Bell Ball with one I'm A Celeb co-star after Boy George dig

Matt Hancock beamed as he enjoyed a lively date night out with girlfriend Gina Coladangelo at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball on Saturday.

The Tory MP cuddled up to Gina as the pair flashed huge smiles for the press as they sat amongst fans at the music concert.

While Hancock made no secret of his love for Ed Sheeran on the reality show, he was seen bopping along to acts including Sam Smith and Coldplay at the 02 Arena.

After announcing plans to step down from his role in the House of Commons on TikTok this week, the politician was already looking relaxed as he headed to the event wearing a pair of jeans and an unbuttoned white shirt.

Joining Matt at the concert was his former I'm A Celeb co-star Scarlette Douglas.

Since the stars left camp there have been multiple reports that relations between this year's celebs have not been quite as rosy as they appeared in the jungle.

Rumours have swirled that Hancock had been excluded from the group WhatsApp while winner Jill Scott said on Loose Women that she was yet to hear from the MP in the weeks since the series wrapped in Australia.

In his first major interview since the show, typically outspoken Boy George warned fans 'not to believe a word Hancock says' as he reignited his beef with the former Health Secretary in style.

Boy George said Hancock didn't really care about forgiveness and only wanted the British public to view him as a 'rock star' given his new found fame.

However, Scarlette was happy to be pictured alongside Matt at the Jingle Bell Ball.

Earlier this week, Hancock joined Boy George at Seann Walsh's comedy gig.

Seann shared his thanks to his pals for supporting him on his return to the stage as he shared a snap of the trio reunited.

"Campmates reunited. This will never be normal!!! Thanks to all that came to to the show tonight," penned Seann.

Below, Boy George wrote: "The comedy was just endless and Sean Walsh has a proper job that he is f***ing amazing at!"

Matt reposted the photo on his own Instagram account, writing: "Delighted to see you out with Seann again. Now Boy George being there is a surprise."

Since the cosy snap was taken relations between Boy George and Matt appear to have soured once again.

George twisted the knife into his former campamate, who announced he is quitting politics on TikTok this week in savage new interview.

Speaking to The Sun, George said: " "Don't believe anything he says about why he did it.

"He did it because he wants to kick up his heels and have a good time.

"We all know that politicians are real people. We also know everyone wants to be a rock star, everybody. Especially politicians.

"So it's impossible to believe some people's reasons for doing something.

"Ultimately, they are doing it for a bigger profile, a bit more attention, hopefully showing people a different side."
