Matt Hancock Faces Backlash After Donating ‘Pathetic’ £10,000 Of £320,000 ‘I’m A Celeb’ Fee To Charity

Not good.

Matt Hancock’s not having the greatest week – first being assaulted by a protester on the London Underground and receiving no sympathy for it whatsoever, and now backlash following the revelation that he pocketed a £320,000 fee for appearing on ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’.

The former health secretary was already under fire for abandoning his constituents to pxss about in the jungle for a month, but it’s now been revealed he donated a measly £10,000 out of his £320k fee to charity.

A spokesperson tried playing it up to Metro:

‘As well as raising the profile of his dyslexia campaign in front of 11-million viewers, Matt’s donated £10,000 to St Nicholas Hospice in Suffolk and the British Dyslexia Association, off the back of his appearance on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.’

Listen, £10k is still £10k and I’m sure the charity will put it to good use, but people aren’t too impressed given we now know how much Hancock made from the gig, which he shouldn’t have been involved with in the first place:

Hancock also raked in £45,000 to take part in Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, for which he spent 80 hours filming. Not bad work if you can get it – especially when you can keep collecting your MP salary at the same time.

Unfortunately for Matt, his ‘Pandemic Diaries’ book was a total flop. Can’t win ’em all.
