I’M A Celebrity has become embroiled in a new fix row as Matt Hancock remains in the jungle.
Taking to Twitter to complain, one person said: “Cannot understand why Matt Hancock is still in, or believe it is legit. Seems a fix to justify him being in there #ImACeleb.”
A second added: “I’m calling it now, I’m a celeb is a fix as handcock will win. Then he will go on a years tour for the show whilst claiming mps wages and expenses.”
“#ImACeleb It’s a fix for Matt to win,” tweeted a third.
And a fourth speculated: “ITV are 100% fudging the votes – I flat out refuse to believe that people are voting to keep Matt Hancock in this long….#ImACeleb #fix.”
There is no suggestion whatsoever that ITV do alter the votes.
But a source said that since then, it has become very difficult to include him.
They added: “Since Matt stopped being voted to tackle Bushtucker Trials and the campmates had finished grilling him, he’s just not involved in as many conversations.

“He is very quiet. He stepped down as camp leader to make way for Mike Tindall, which basically meant he blended into the background of camp life.
“He’s slotted into the camp dynamic so has become part of the furniture rather than a hugely divisive figure.
“Which, of course, means he’s not providing many funny or interesting moments that make the cut.”
