Matt Hancock showed off his ‘dancing daddy’ at the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Outgoing party.
The former health secretary joined his fellow former campmates in the season for the finale of the ITV reality show, although social media interaction between the celebrity contestants has implied that some have snubbed Hancock since he stepped out of the jungle.
Hancock, 44, is seen dancing with A Place in the Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas as DJ Chris Moyles watches the agog.

In scenes from the party episode of Coming Out – which airs Thursday, December 1 at 21:15 – the congressman asks his girlfriend, former government aide Gina Coladangelo if he came across “authentic”.
Hancock says, “Of course I’m curious how it went, was it authentically me?”
Coladangelo tells him, “It took a few days I felt for you to relax.”
Hancock added: “When I was being grilled in the early days, I felt like people were asking me on behalf of the British public. I knew getting in would be controversial, but I also know that millions of people voted for me.”

The politician – who was forced to resign from the cabinet after his affair with Coladangelo was exposed during the coronavirus pandemic – finished third on the jungle reality show.
Footballer Jill Scott has been crowned Queen of the Jungle, with Hollyoaks star Owen Warner as runner-up.
Since all the celebs have left the jungle, there has been speculation about a rift between Hancock and the other contestants after some shared photos of the cast enjoying a celebratory dinner together, but with notable absences.
Loose Women’s Charlene White posted an image of herself having dinner with Moyles, Douglas, Warner, Mike Tindall and his wife Zara Phillips and Babatunde Aleshe.
Hancock was not present, nor were Boy George, Seann Walsh, Sue Cleaver or the victor Scott.
Coronation Street star Cleaver has been following all of his campmates on Instagram, with the exception of Hancock.
