I'M A Celebrity star Scarlette Douglas attacked Matt Hancock on Twitter telling him "get out of here" in an unearthed tweet.
The Place In The Sun host blasted the former Health Secretary after The Sun exposed him for breaking his own lockdown rules by having an affair at work.
She wrote on Twitter shortly after Matt, 44, was forced to resign from his Government post last year: "Good, get him out of here."
Loose Women star Charlene White, who will also appear in the jungle, lost a beloved Aunt to Covid in 2020.
She has also previously been critical of the Covid strategy while Mr Hancock was health secretary.
She tweeted in January 2021: "We're one of the richest nations in the country, with one of the highest Covid death rates.

It means that Charlene and Scarlette could be among those who take issue with sharing the jungle camp with Matt.
I'm A Celeb's executive producer Olly Nash has defended the show for signing up Matt.
He said it was down to Matt whether he appeared on the show or not.
He told the Mirror: "It's always an individual's choice to come into camp, isn't it?
