FANS of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here were left stunned as Matt Hancock suffered a nasty injury before his fifth trial tonight.
The former Health Secretary revealed he had been stung by a critter before heading to the trial clearing to face the House Of Horrors.
MP 马特, 44, who was seen taking part in his FIFTH Bushtucker trial in a row tonight, struggled through the pain after a scorpion sting.

“Ow, that really hurts! I’ve got no splinter, that really hurts, I must have been bitten by something,” Matt could be heard saying.
“哇, look at that, a scorpion, I’ve been stung by a scorpion,” 他继续, as his fellow celebrities rushed to help him.
马特, who his co-stars said “looked like he wanted to cry”, told the Bush Telegraph: “It was so painful… it hurts a lot and I’m feeling slightly dizzy. It’s like two times a bee sting.”
But there was no time for Matt to rest – as he was soon whisked off for his latest trial, the House of Horrors.
He told Ant and Dec ahead of the trial: “I’ve had quite a full on morning as I got stung by a scorpion. It was unbelievably painful.”
“It was really painful – it still hurts! But they say the smaller scorpions they just hurt, they don’t kill you.”
