Matt Hancock was paid a huge sum of money to swap Westminster for the Australian jungle, it has been revealed.
The MP appeared on the 2022 edition of the juggernaut series, where he reached third place, with Jill Scott being crowned Queen of the Jungle.

The document reveals Lifted Entertainment, the producers of the show, paid him a whooping £320,000.
