I’M A CELEBRITY star Charlene White may be the first campmate to confront Matt Hancock after she revealed her own personal tragedy on Loose Women.
The newsreader, 42, was left heartbroken after her great-aunt Dell passed away from Covid-19 at St Thomas’ Hospital in 2020.
The journalist revealed she “couldn’t hug family at the funeral” and slammed “rule-breaking” MPs when her beloved aunt passed away.
And now insiders have warned that the former Health Secretary should expect a grilling by co-star Charlene over the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
A principios de este año, Charlene tearfully told viewers on the popular ITV chat show that she was unable to comfort her grieving family.
Ella dijo “My family stuck by the rules.
“We had to bury family members without being able to hug each other. I had to sit in a crematorium where my aunt was buried.
“Because I wasn’t living in the same household as my brother and sister and my dad, I was in a pew by myself with my baby daughter on my lap and we were all in floods of tears.”
Ella continuó: “I stood by the graveside while grave diggers were filling the grave and my cousin was in floods of tears and not being able to hug her because we’re following the rules.
“We have a situation like this, and you think ‘should I have just hugged my cousin?'”

It comes after The Sun revealed that Matt, 44, is being paid close to half a million pounds by I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.
Insiders told The Sun how the Conservative MP had landed a payday worth around £400,000 to take part in the ITV series – sparking fury among his critics.
"ITV were keen for viewers to think the deal was worth around £150,000 but in reality it’s over double that.
“They asked him to be on the show three times in a matter of weeks and the money definitely helped seal the deal.”
The under-fire former Health Minister has insisted he will make a sizeable donation to charity, but the size of his deal has caused outrage – with those who know him saying his West Suffolk constituents will be apoplectic with rage at the size of the cash deal.
Matt is now in quarantine on the Gold Coast ahead of the show starting on Sunday evening.
Viewers will not see Matt on screen until the end of next week as he signed up as late arrival – joining comedian and ex Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh.
