Matt Hancock warned ahead of I’m a Celeb appearance he will be used like a 'toy'

As I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! returns to our screens this Sunday (6 November), the main talk still surrounds the inclusion of Matt Hancock in the reality TV show.

The former health secretary has been largely criticised for accepting the offer to take part in the show.

The MP for West Suffolk has had the Tory whip suspended, with the Conservative chief whip, Simon Hart, saying he believed Hancock's involvement in the show was "serious enough to warrant suspension of the whip with immediate effect".

Effectively, this means Hancock has been 'expelled' from the party and must sit as an independent until the whip is restored.

Quite the fall from grace, eh?

Now, last year's 'King of the Castle' has got involved in the debate and has predicted the public will vote for Hancock in all the show's dreaded bushtucker trials.

In an interview on Good Morning Britain, Emmerdale star Danny Miller said he believes the disgraced politician will be used as a 'toy' when he enters the jungle as the 12th campmate.

"I think he needs to just accept the fact that he is going to be everyone's toy," he said.

Miller made reference to last year's show in Wales when the public voted for music producer Naughty Boy for all the trials.

He said: "Last year, unfortunately Naughty Boy got it because he did the first one [challenge] and he was very entertaining and everyone then went, 'Naughty Boy, Naughty Boy, Naughty Boy!'"

Miller continued by saying he thinks Hancock will not have an easy time in the jungle.

He continued: "I think regardless of how entertaining he is, he needs to accept that what he has put us through, I think the public are going to say, 'This is what we are going to put you through'.

"And when they are done with him they will just get rid of him, I think."

As for Miller's tips for who will come out either king or queen of the jungle, he believes Corrie star Sue Cleaver, Boy George and England Lioness Jill Scott will be in the final three - though he did not speculate on who he thinks will win.

ITV is yet to officially confirm Hancock's involvement in I'm a Celeb, with ten campmates entering the jungle on Sunday.

Hancock is expected to be one of two campmates to join the show in the coming days.

According to The Sun, Hancock is expected to bag £400,000 for taking part in the ITV show.

Though the politician has reiterated he will be making a sizeable donation to charity and will declare the amount of money he makes from the show to Parliament.
