Matt Hancock plunges into livers covered by millions of flies in latest I’m A Celebrity House of Horrors trial ITV

Matt Hancock will take on the House of Horrors in his latest Bushtucker Trial on Sunday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

A public vote will see the former health secretary venture into an eerie building in the jungle – and he won’t be alone.

Hancock, 44, will come face to face with a variety of critters.

In a preview of Sunday’s show, the MP can be seen in an enclosure with two-and-a-half million flies.

“The thing you don’t know is that this really smells too,” he says to co-hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Hancock delves his hands into a bathtub filled with “massive livers” covered in the flying bugs.

On Friday, he was covered in slime and pelted with feathers and custard as he took part in his fourth challenge.

Following a public vote, Hancock and his 23-year-old campmate Owen Warner, known as Romeo Nightingale in Hollyoaks, were chosen for Friday’s trial.

They soon discovered they would face a jungle-themed version of the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? entitled Who Wants To Look Silly On Air?

Learning he would be taking part, Hancock laughed and said: “That was the most predictable outcome. It’s called looking silly on air, it will be me then.”

All the campmates watched on as Ant and Dec explained they would need to secure 11 stars to feed the entire camp.

The presenting duo would ask them six multiple choice questions with 60 seconds to answer each, and the help of various lifelines.

Hancock and Warner were drenched in brown sauce before using Ask The Hosts to make McPartlin correctly answer who plays Sirius Black in the Harry Potter movies – Gary Oldman.

They failed to guess which Australian city the Hemsworth brothers were born in, while another question was halted after the campmates watching on tried to give away the correct answer by coughing loudly.

Hancock and Warner then called Sue Cleaver for help using her as their Phone A Friend for a question that involved the year Coronation Street started.

The soap star was drenched while she took the call, with Warner shouting: “Leave Sue alone!”

The pair continued to be pelted with feathers, custard and other messy substances before the challenge ended and they were told they had only secured five out of the 11 stars.

A downcast Warner said: “I’m not happy man, I’m covered in all sorts and we’ve only got five stars. He (Matt) was doing well until you got me on his team.”

The episode also saw Boy George recall coming out to his family as a young man.

Speaking to presenter Charlene White, he remembered his early fashion choices, saying: “My mum would say (to my dad): ‘Look at what’s he’s wearing.’

“And my dad used to get his paper (and drop it down to look) and go: ‘If he wants to get beat up let him go out.’ And that was it you know?”

Asked by White whether his sexuality was a surprise to those close to him, the singer replied: “No. My dad used to do this thing in the car, he’d turn down the music when he was going to make an announcement.

“My brothers were all going to work, he was like, radio down, he goes: ‘I need to tell you about your brother.’ They said: ‘We know, turn the music up.’”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on STV at 9pm.
