Matt Hancock and Seann Walsh will finally be joining their campmates for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Today, according to reports.

The former health minister and the comedian’s arrival in the jungle will be teased by Ant and Dec on at the end of tonight’s show and will likely appear on Wednesday’s episode.

An insider told The Sun: “Matt and Seann will be arriving together into the camp which is away from the other celebrities. Producers have been planning the perfect way to introduce the pair into the show and it will be TV gold when the campmates see Hancock.”

After news broke that Hancock had decided to join to reality series, he had the Tory whip suspended and has been subject to criticism from across the political divide for opting to sign up at a time when Parliament is sitting.

It is a decision the current PM Rishi Sunak has said he is “very disappointed” with.

It is understood Hancock has been given access to his phone and laptop during his isolation, allowing him to stay in touch with constituents and continue working.

This news comes after Olivia Atwood was forced to quit the show less than 24 hours after landing in the jungle due to “medical reasons”.

The former Love Islander was send home by on-site staff who decided it would be safer to leave. In a statement they said: “As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks.

“Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigation. She’s been absolutely brilliant, and she’ll be very much missed on the show.”

Elsewhere in last night’s show, former Rugby Union player Mike Tindall, surprised the nation with a very unexpected hidden talent- find out more about that here.
