Matt Hancock admits he never thought he’d make it this far as show’s final looms

Matt Hancock has expressed his surprise at making the final stages of this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The disgraced MP, who was initially the favourite to be booted from the jungle first, now finds himself as one of the four remaining celebrities alongside Jill Scott, Mike Tindall and Owen Warner.

The former health secretary shocked the nation and angered his constituents in the process when he arrived in camp with Seann Walsh on November 9.

However, the 44-year old appears to have won over the voting public – outlasting the likes of popular radio DJ Chris Moyles, and music icon Boy George ahead of Sunday's grand finale.

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph before Seann lost the latest public vote on Friday night, Matt said: "We're so near the end and I’m delighted to be still here.

"I never thought I’d make it to the final five and here I am, so I’m very grateful."

Before leaving camp, meanwhile, Seann shared a hug with his campmates and told them "Lovely getting to know you".

And speaking to Ant and Dec afterwards, the evictee made a noise and said: "Argghh! That's how I am feeling. That was crazy, what was that, oh my god."

He added: "So many memories, so many amazing memories. I absolutely loved it."

Then, addressing his late entry with Matt, he told the Geordie duo: "When I entered there was a mini camp and I thought that was camp. And then Matt walked in! Very good guys, I was not expecting that.

"I'll be honest with you, when I saw him, I thought maybe I am not going out first! But he is in there for a reason, he is very funny."
