Piers Morgan tells Matt Hancock he would give him a good kicking in brutal dig

Piers Morgan has revealed he confronted disgraced MP Matt Hancock as the I’m A Celeb contestant finally landed back in the UK following his stint in the jungle.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter, 57, took to Twitter to tell followers he had an “awkward” encounter with the reality TV star after he spotted him back in England at Heathrow Airport.

The politician is said to have been enjoying parties and socializing with his girlfriend, Gina Coladangelo, following his three-week stint in Australia, and has finally returned home ready to resume his work duties and meet with his constituents in West Suffolk.

Piers, who was critical of Mr Hancock's decision to appear on the ITV show, told his fans online how he told Hancock how he would have given him "a kicking" had he been in camp with him.

The journalist began his tweet writing: "Just bumped into Matt Hancock at Heathrow.

"I told him I’d been giving him a good kicking the entire time he was in the jungle."

Piers then added: "He said he knew. It was the purest personification of #Awks."

Mr Hancock's long-awaited return to England follows the former health secretary coming third during I'm A Celebrity's live final on Sunday night.

He lost out to winner Jill Scott and runner-up Owen Warner.

Gina, who was there to awkwardly embrace Mr Hancock on the jungle bridge on Sunday night, jetted out of the country on Tuesday with some of Mr Hancock's celebrity campmates, but the independent MP remained Down Under to cash in on his new found fame with a lucrative interview.

Now he has arrived back in England, Mr Hancock will need to clear up several issues regarding his political career and confirm just how much of his I'm A Celebrity appearance fee will be donated to charity, following his team's refusal to confirm the amount to the Mirror on Sunday.

Speaking on an upcoming I'm A Celebrity homecoming special, set to air on ITV tomorrow night, Mr Hancock's girlfriend admits the MP underestimated the strong reaction his stint in the jungle would have.

She told the ITV cameras: "I think it's fair to say that Matt underestimated the scale of the reaction to him coming into the jungle.

He's made of tough stuff, this summer we trekked around Mont Blanc together in 4 days.

"My last words to him were 'Just be yourself, be the Matt I know and it'll go really well.'"
