Matt Hancock backed to break I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Bushtucker Trial Record

Infamous former UK health secretary Matt Hancock looks set to smash the record for participating in the most Bushtucker Trials, according to Ladbrokes.

As the MP gears up to make his jungle debut tonight, the bookies have responded by pricing his odds of going all the way at 25/1, making him one of the rank outsiders.


And the news gets worse for Hancock, who is as short as 1/3 with Ladbrokes to set a new record for most Bushtucker Trials faced this series.


Some punters don’t give him much of a chance of a long stay in the jungle, with the bookmaker also seeing support for Hancock to be the first camp mate eliminated at odds of 4/1. Others think he won’t even need the push from the public to leave, with odds on Hancock quitting the series at 10/1.


Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: "Matt Hancock could be in for one hell of a ride on I’m A Celebrity if the latest odds are anything to go by as we have been inundated with bets on him facing the most Bushtucker trials this series. This has all the makings of TV gold as viewers get ready to give him the ultimate payback Down Under!"
