Vick Hope thinks social media is all about Matt Hancockwent over I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! is like something out of Black Mirror.

The former health secretary has sparked a backlash over his decision to take to the jungle on the ITV reality show as an incumbent MP, with many people still hurt by his actions during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Already, Mr. Hancock is elected to take part in grueling Bushtucker trials as some viewers relish the opportunity to put him through punishing tasks.

Speaking about the show on Friday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Charlotte Hawkin said, “It’s mesmerizing to watch! I think whatever your take on him, you’re just hooked.

Her co-star Vick agreed, insisting it made TV “compelling” as she suggested the whole situation felt like an episode of Charlie Brooker’s dystopian sci-fi anthology series.

‘Watching it, I felt like I was in Black Mirror! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, and it’s so compelling,” she added. “People on Twitter say every night, like him or not, you can’t stop watching.”

On Thursday, the 44-year-old politician found himself in deep water with his second Bushtucker try in a row.

Unsurprisingly, viewers voted for him to star in Tentacles of Terror, and he found himself immersed in an octopus-shaped metal structure with plenty of underwater creatures for company.

The MP, who collected a full house of 11 stars, admitted after the task: ‘I was absolutely petrified. I can not believe it. I was so nervous. My heart was pounding. I’m really proud of myself.

Meanwhile, his campmates took the time to discuss his controversial arrival in the jungle.

Comedian Seann Walsh said: “This man will have a very different narrative of what he did than what we all think happened, and there will be reasons.” I’m not justifying anything this guy did… but fucking being in his job when it was happening.

Although Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver agreed, she added: “Coming into I’m A Celebrity isn’t for me.” He has voters at home, he is a sitting deputy.

I am a continuous celebrity tonight at 9 p.m. on ITV.
