He surprised viewers with a rendition of an Ed Sheeran song and his awkward ‘dad’ dancing.

And it seems there is no end to Matt Hancock’s talents, as he regaled his jungle campmates with tales of his stint as a jockey.

Pictures unearthed by the Mail (left) show the MP, 44, atop his horse, punching the air in blue and white silks after winning the Newmarket Horsemen and Heroes Day charity race in 2012 – his first ever competition. 

He won by two lengths, and the event raised £100,000. 

Hancock told comic Seann Walsh, 36: ‘Frankie Dettori taught me how to ride.’

The conversation prompted Matt to explain how he struggled with his reading at school, so was glad to find out he was dyslexic, with the politician saying: ‘Instead of feeling I was just rubbish at something and useless, it was ah… so actually I am OK with language, it’s just my brain works differently and I can work on that.’
