Matt Hancock bitten by scorpion in I’m A Celebrity camp

Matt Hancock has been seen by medics after being bitten by scorpion on I’m A Celebrity.

The politician was “nipped” by the creature while in camp in tonight’s latest episode (13 November).

As the celebs woke up for their latest morning in the jungle, Matt yelled out in pain saying he felt like he’d been bitten on his finger.

Matt yelled: “Ow, that really hurts! I’ve got no splinter. Ow, that really hurt… it’s like I must have been bitten by something.”

He then shared: “Oh yeah! Wow, look at that a scorpion. I’ve been stung by a scorpion!”

Matt told the other celebs: “It was so painful… it hurts a lot and I’m feeling slightly dizzy.”

Scarlette said in the Bush Telegraph: “He looked like he wanted to cry.”

In the Bush Telegraph Boy George said: “How does that happen, of all the people that could get stung by a scorpion. I’m not laughing, I’m sure it was horrible but… [laughs]…”

Matt told camp how it felt: “Basically it’s like two times a bee sting.”

Tonight’s episode will also see Matt take on his fifth bushtucker trial, the House of Horrors.

Ant & Dec headed into camp last night to revealed the results of the latest viewer vote.

And there was little surprise when the pair announced that Matt had again been voted by the public to face the next trial.

Matt will have to search for stars in a series of rooms including one filled with offal and more than 2.5 million flies.

Last night saw Matt take on the latest trial together with soap star Owen Warner.

The duo took on a jungle-themed version of ITV’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? entitled ‘Who Wants To Look Silly On Air?’ with the other celebs watching on as the audience. Despite their best efforts, they were left disappointed with a haul of five out of a possible eleven stars.

Other celebrities on this year’s show currently include Corrie actress Sue Cleaver, comedian Babatúndé Aléshé, A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas and rugby star Mike Tindall MBE.

Completing the cast are newsreader and Loose Women star Charlene White, pop icon Boy George, England footballer Jill Scott, comic Seann Walsh and radio host Chris Moyles.

Hosted by Ant & Dec, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues each night on ITV.
