Matt Hancock today revealed what he really thinks of his fellow I'm a Celeb contestants and denied Mike Tindall and other stars had bullied him in the jungle. 

The former health secretary admitted that most campmates 'didn’t take to me straightaway' - apart from Seann Walsh - and insisted that he and Boy George are now firm friends, 'whatever he says about me'. 

Speaking exclusively to Mail+, Mr Hancock described his shock at the public voting him into the final, declaring: 'They saw the real me. We Brits love an underdog'.

The group warmed to him, especially when he completed trial after gruesome trial to win food for the camp in the first week.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, which is serialising his new pandemic diaries, he said he regards Boy George as a good friend and that Charlene White had been unfairly criticised.

He said: 'Whatever he says about me, I think Boy George is wonderful and I did not expect to say that about George because we have very different backgrounds, to say the least. It took us a few days but we had, what I would call, grown up, respectful discussions. I count him as a friend and I hope he does me too at the end’.
