Matt Hancock and girlfriend Gina Coladangelo head to I'm A Celeb wrap party

After three weeks in the jungle, Matt Hancock was ready for a night on the town on Monday.

Hours after he finished in third place on the 2022 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, the former Health Secretary, 44, was celebrating, heading to the series wrap party with his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo, 45.

The couple matched in white for the celebratory bash as it was revealed Matt received a 21% split of the final vote.

Time to party! After three weeks in the jungle, Matt Hancock was ready for a night on the town on Monday, heading to the I’m A Celeb wrap party with his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo

Gina showed off her trim figure in her halter-neck jumpsuit, teamed with a bright pink bag and gold sandals.

Matt had had time to wash the jungle grime off, emerging from the campmates’ plush hotel in a crisp white shirt and blue jeans.

He finished in third place during Sunday night’s finale, which saw Lioness Jill Scott crowned the Jungle Queen after beating Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner into second place. 

The ITV show announced how the public voted in the final, with winner Jill receiving 47.29% of the vote, Owen getting 30.99% and Matt finishing with 21.72%.

After Matt left and it was down to a vote between the final two, winner Jill received a majority of 57.66% while Owen got 42.34%. 

The final episode saw the three campmates take on a Bushtucker Trial each in order to win five stars per person and their dream feast later that evening.

The following morning they were greeted by Ant and Dec who announced the winner of the 2022 series. 

Upon leaving the Australian jungle, Matt was reunited with his girlfriend Gina and the pair shared a close embrace and kiss on the iconic bridge.

As they hugged, an overwhelmed Matt was heard saying ‘I love you so much’ to his partner, who travelled more than 9,000 miles to greet the Tory MP.

The politician defied all expectations in making the grand final and, after his exit, he admitted he decided to enter the jungle because he wanted to show the ‘lighter side’ to his personality.

After his exit, he spoke to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly about his time in the camp, saying he decided to join the show because he said politicians aren’t viewed as ‘human enough’ by the public.

‘I just wanted to show what I’m like as a person. Lots of people come to me with pre-conceived ideas for obvious reasons, but I just wanted to be myself,’ he said.

‘Politicians as a whole, we don’t come across as human enough. This is an extreme way of doing that.’

‘People think they know me, but they don’t. They know Matt Hancock from the TV and the media,’ he added. 

Speaking about the controversy surrounding his arrival, Matt admitted he was ‘nervous’ to walk into the jungle and meet the other celebrities.

He said: ‘When I first walked in, there was just Seann [Walsh], and we got slightly giddy. He makes everyone look good as he laughs at everyone’s jokes. When we walked into main camp and discovered some of the existing dynamics, that was tough.’

During the show, Matt was famously questioned by ITV newsreader Charlene White over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and how he broke his own social distancing guidelines when he was caught having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo.

Addressing the moment, Matt said he was ‘grateful’ to his fellow campmates for being able to have ‘grown-up conversations’ despite their strong feelings, and admitted they also had a number of ‘important’ discussions about politics and his dyslexia. 

He said: ‘We managed to talk about some important things, not just politics narrowly but dyslexia, especially with Jill and George about growing up gay, all sorts of interesting conversations.’ 

Finalists: Matt was beaten only by Jill and Owen to first and second place respectively, with the Lioness being crowned as the 2022 Queen of the Jungle
