Criticism of Matt Hancock’s Participation in Reality Show in United Kingdom

Former British Health Secretary Matt Hancock surfaced these suddenly on the reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ But the participation of the minister, who resigned for violating Covid rules and was also accused of emotional abuse, is not appreciated by everyone.


In fact, a petition was even started to have him removed from the program.

As many as 44,000 people have already signed the petition. The reason for the petition is clear: “Matt Hancock is not a celebrity; he is the health minister who saw to it that the UK had one of the highest death rates in the world from Covid-19 while he broke his own rules about the lockdown,” the website reads.

Hancock resigned after it was revealed that he had broken his own rules regarding covid. His covid policy has been criticized from all quarters. In total, nearly 200,000 people died from the virus in the UK.

Hancock’s decision to participate in the show has been criticized by his parliamentary colleagues, among others. He was also suspended from MP after it was revealed that he was participating in the survival TV show.

The new Prime Minister of England also expressed his “disappointment”. For example, a spokesman for Rishi Sunak said that representatives of the people “should better concern themselves with the well-being of their voters”. However, Hancock defended himself by saying he would use the show to promote his word blindness campaign. In addition, he would donate some of his earnings tests during the show to charity.

According to The Guardian, Hancock had to hand over his phone on his arrival in Australia – where the show is being filmed – and would not be fully aware of the magnitude of the reactions. However, before his debut on the show, he defended that he was “looking for other ways to interact with the public” and that he “wants to focus primarily on young people.”

“I thought she was going to die.”

Boy George – and many other participants – also say they are surprised by Hancock’s participation. Boy Gerge even revealed that he had thought about stopping the shooting. Unfortunately, his mother was in the hospital during the pandemic, and the singer was not allowed to visit her due to the covid rules. “I thought she was going to die,” he says. “I don’t want to sit here and pretend we’re having fun together. It’s hard for me. I would not have wanted to be here if my mother had died.”

Boy George chose not to dine with Hancock on the first night. “I don’t know what to do with my feelings. Today was very emotional for me. I don’t know if I want to be here,” the singer added.
