Lorraine Kelly slams Matt Hancock on I'm A Celebrity saying 'what's the point of him being there?' | The Sun

LORRAINE Kelly has slammed Matt Hancock on I'm A Celebrity saying 'there's no point in him being there, let's be honest.'

It comes after it was revealed the controversial politician could be ruled out of the notorious Bushtucker trials on medical grounds during his stint on I'm A Celebrity.

Speaking on her ITV show on Thursday morning, Lorraine said: "It has been suggested that he might not be doing some of the trials.
