Jonathan Ross bans I’m A Celeb star from his talk show as he’s ‘not a celebrity’

Presenter Jonathan Ross has made it clear he would not welcome former MP and current I'm A Celeb contestant Matt Hancock onto his Saturday night talk show, The Jonathan Ross Show.

Speaking to Sunday People about whether he'd ever speak to the former health secretary on whether he'd sit down with him on his ITV show, Jonathan didn't hold back in his response.

"No, I wouldn’t, he’s not a celebrity. He’s a horrible human being and I cannot bear the way people take no responsibility for their actions", he said.

Despite how he feels about Matt, he admitted he's still watching this year's series of the ITV reality show and is unimpressed by Matt's attempts in the Australian jungle.

"He was very bad when he was in office and he’s – remarkably – even worse now he’s out of it!", Jonathan revealed.

Matt's decision to join I'm A Celeb was met with a lot of controversy from the public and his campmates.

Upon meeting him in the jungle, A Place In The Sun presenter, Scarlette Douglas, who was voted out on Sunday night (November 20), told Good Morning Britain that she'd "pulled him aside" to tell him how she felt.

She said: "Everyone was shocked to see him in there, I had to pull him aside and tell him how I felt."

"I told him there's a lot of things you've done that people aren't happy with. In the jungle we'll get on but that doesn't mean we'll be best friends on the outside" Scarlette admitted.

Speaking to former campmate, newscaster Charlene White, Matt said he was looking for a "bit of forgiveness".

"What I’m really looking for is a bit of forgiveness, that’s what I’m really looking for. We all make mistakes. I made a pretty big one", he confessed.

The Prime Minister also spoke out about Matt's reality TV stint, stating that he was "disappointed" in his decision.
