Given that Mike Tindall was eliminated by voters on Saturday night, the disgraced former health secretary now has a spot in Sunday’s championship match.
Matt Hancock has advanced to the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! final this year. following the elimination of Mike Tindall, a former England rugby player, as the eighth contestant.
In the series finale on Sunday night, where the king or queen of the jungle will be chosen, the disgraced former health minister will compete alongside Hollyoaks star Owen Warner and former England footballer Jill Scott.
After receiving harsh criticism for agreeing to participate in the show while parliament is in session, the MP for West Suffolk has exceeded expectations.
Alongside comedian Seann Walsh, who was booted off the reality show on Friday, he came to it late. His other campmates had mixed feelings about him.
Hancock, however, has won over the public despite initial rumors that he would be the first elected official to be removed for his handling of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The politician “obviously wants to win,” according to Tindall, hours before he was eliminated.
The 44-year-old sportsman was quoted in the Bush Telegraph as saying: “Matt’s making sure his T-shirt and his phone digits are on display at all times.
“Matt has a winning attitude.
Every time he leaves camp, I take tremendous joy in turning it around.
He laughed: “A politician is a politician forever. voting polls are ongoing.”
Later, Tindall replied to Walsh: “Have you seen someone promoting themselves lately?
“Matt has started labeling everything ‘Matt’ and pointing cameras with the phone number.”
Hancock tweeted: “Huge thank you to everyone who has voted Matt through to the final” – referring to himself in the third person – and urged his supporters to vote for him using the hashtag #VoteMatt.
The last four competed in the cyclone challenge on Saturday’s program, in which celebrities must climb a steep hill while dodging hazards to earn stars for camp.
Hancock informed his opponents, “I never imagined I’d make it to the cyclone,” as he expressed his joy upon completing the last obstacle.
“I can’t wait, it’s going to be just wonderful.”
Hancock donned a matching pair of metallic hot pants after introducing himself as the “Bronze Bronco” and saying, “I am clinging on for dear life.” Each of the celebrities was urged to adopt a superhero character.
This is the one trial you look forward to, Hancock stated to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Hancock continued, “I just thought, walk straight up the middle… give the audience what they want, a big target and they loved it. Tindall rugby tackled me during the challenge.
“And then Mike Tindall landed on me.”
He noted that the challenge was “much more enjoyable than it appears.”
“An incredible journey”
Tindall was welcomed by his wife, Zara Tindall, Princess Anne’s daughter, after exiting the camp.
As he was leaving, he stated: “I feel very at ease there. This adventure has been incredible.
“With everyone who has been there and the way the camp has operated, I believe we have been quite fortunate.
“Having spent a significant amount of my time working in a team, I didn’t anticipate it to work as well as it did.”
