Radio presenter Chris Moyles became the seventh contestant to be evicted from the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle on Friday night. He recently admitted that he was close to throwing in the towel early on in his journey, after expressing his dislike for former Health Secretary Matt Hancock known.

When Matt Hancock and comedian Seann Walsh made their late arrival at the camp, it caused tension among the other campmates.

As many of them welcomed Matt into the camp and had an open mind to get to know him, Chris made his discomfort for the MP known throughout his time on the show.

However, it seems that Chris was unable to keep a calm head at one point as he explained he had to “walk out” of camp after listening to Matt’s reason for entering the jungle.

Speaking on Radio X after his departure, he explained: “Matt Hancock kind of dived around a few questions I thought and then said, I guess all I’m just asking for is forgiveness.

“And, at which point, I had to walk out of camp and just get away because I personally found that quite fake. And that really wound me up.”

Chris admitted that knowing they were going to be spending a long period of time together, he had to separate Matt from a politician to being his campmate and working together to win food.

He added: “As a campmate, he did an amazing job. And as a guy, he lives in a different world to you and me. But, he’s a human being.

“There’s Matt Hancock, who I have issues with, and there’s Matt who I was in the jungle with and I know that sounds almost like an excuse, but it was the only way that myself and others could deal with that fact.”

Feeling conflicted about spending time with Matt, Chris was the campmate who decided to kick off the conversation about the coronavirus pandemic and asked Matt his reasoning for joining the show.

Chris asked Matt: “What’s the plan, come out of here, write a book?” to which Matt said: “I’ve just finished a book – Pandemic Diaries. Does what it says on the tin.”

The Radio X presenter added: “You got a lockdown fine, didn’t you?”.

Matt immediately denied it: “No, of course, I didn’t. No, I did not. I didn’t break any… I didn’t break any laws. Guidance is different.”

Chris said: “You were articulate and human. And I think that’s why a lot of people felt let down a bit. I’m like, ahh… you b***end, why couldn’t you have just been like [Matt: “Just got to the end.”]. Yeah… but look, tomorrow is another day.”

Matt said to Charlene White: “Do you know what it is actually, what I’m really looking for is a bit of forgiveness, that’s what I’m really looking for.”

This annoyed Chris and left him wondering what he meant, as he explained in the Bush Telegraph: “Honestly.

“The way I feel now is he’s pulled the mask slightly off his chin a little bit but I still think he’s not telling us the full truth.”

Matt’s appearance on the show caused outrage among fans and came with over 3,000 Ofcom complaints, despite the MP having survived the public vote.

Speaking to Ant and Dec after his exit, Chris quipped: “I’m gutted Matt Hancock is more popular than me. What is going on?”

“Why am I out and he’s still in? I really struggled with [his arrival] to be fair and then I s****ed him a bit. Matt Hancock, I’ve got major issues with, but Matt… less issues.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! airs daily from 9pm on ITV.
