Carol Vorderman jokes we've been saying 'Hancock' all wrong as he joins I'm A Celeb | The Sun

CAROL Vorderman has taken a cheeky swipe at Matt Hancock ahead of his I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! debut.

The 61-year-old, who herself is appearing in next year's I'm A Celeb All Stars series, made the rude dig hours before the MP is seen entering the jungle.

While travelling in the back of a taxi, Carol joked with her Instagram followers that the 'Han' part of Matt's surname "is silent" when pronouncing it.

The former Countdown star said: "Apparently, to say his name properly, the 'Han' is silent. Who knew?

"Matt -c*ck. Matt -c*ck. I think I've got it right."

Carol was making her way to the This Morning studios in London when she made the rude swipe.

She appeared on Wednesday's instalment of the ITV1 show to discuss Matt and comedian Seann Walsh, who will both be seen for the first time on I’m A Celebrity tonight.

In a preview clip, ex Health Secretary Matt has been captured screaming in terror as he takes on his first Bushtucker Trial.

It is predicted that Matt, who was isolating at a plush £2million luxury beach house before heading into camp as part of strict ITV rules, is set to take on a record-breaking number of trials in Australia.

An insider said: “Matt was forced to crawl through tunnels infested with critters in what is set to be his first of many Bushtucker Trials.

“He then climbed into a huge pool of slime before he was smothered with maggots and spiders.

“The ITV crew didn’t hold back as he was truly thrown into the deep end which is just a taste of what is to come.”

Matt, 44, and Seann, 36, will be seen arriving at I'm A Celebrity's derelict Snake Rock camp.

It comes after Matt spoke of his fear of snakes — while denying that angry viewers will vote for him to do one critter-infested Bushtucker Trial after another.

The Tory MP was last year exposed by The Sun when he broke Covid rules after being caught with his closest aide Gina Coladangelo, 43, behind wife Martha Hoyer Millar's back.

He hopes his appearance on the hit show will win over the public.

In his interview before entering, he admitted: “I have never come across a snake at close quarters and so I am pretty worried about anything to do with snakes.”
