Matt Hancock 'snubbed' as Royal Zara Tindall organises boozy I'm A Celeb afterparty

The 'final meal' enjoyed by campmates following the culmination of this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Year was organised by royalty, according to contestant Charlene White.

After Lioness footballer Jill Scott was crowned Queen of the Jungle on Sunday, Zara Tindall - wife of finalist Mike - put plans in place for the boozy bash, but disgraced politician Hancock was nowhere to be seen.

Charlene, 42, who was booted from camp first, has divulged further information surrounding the party.

She told her ITV co-stars Denise Welch, Linda Robson and Carol McGiffin: "We had a very raucous night out on our last night with both Mike and Zara, who arranged it for us.

"Not the official party but they arranged one separately. They booked the table and 26 of us all went out for dinner.

" And I have to say, Zara is definitely one of us. She is definitely one of us! Her feet were really sore when we went out, and she was debating if she should go back to the hotel and get her trainers - but she decided to go barefoot."

The bash was held in Queensland on Monday.

Matt's absence comes as no surprise after eagle-eyed fans spotted the moment Mike awkwardly snubbed the MP in an Instagram live.

The former rugby player, 44, took to social media after the grand finale and followers couldn't help but notice how the royal quickly diverted the camera after it landed on Hancock.

During the video, Mike chatted to Jill and Coronation Street's Sue Cleaver, before Mike panned the camera around.

As it landed on Hancock, 44, the former rugby star said: "year erm..." before walking away with an awkward laugh.

One wrote: "Omg I loved how you skipped past Matt", while another viewer added: "Loved the "bypassing" Hancock".

A third chimed: "The Matt moment!!! "and yeah erm…."*shuffles away!".
