Matt Hancock is said to be appearing on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins next year.

Matt Hancock was paid £45,000 to appear in the upcoming series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, it has been revealed.

The former health secretary has just finished his controversial stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, however, he reportedly took part in Celebrity SAS before heading to the jungle.

The entry also revealed that he spent 80 hours filming Celebrity SAS while Parliament was in recess between September 24 and October 8.

Although Hancock is yet to disclose his payment for appearing on I’m A Celeb, he is thought to have earned the second-highest sum of this series; around £400,000.

Matt finished in third place this year after a controversial few weeks in the jungle, in which his campmates grilled him for breaching social distancing rules during the pandemic, as well as his affair with aide Gina Coladangelo.

He finished just behind runner-up and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner while former Lioness footballer Jill Scott was crowned Queen of the Jungle.

The 44-year-old was suspended as Conservative MP after joining the 2022 line-up, with Chief Whip Simon Hart MP saying at the time: "Following a conversation with Matt Hancock, I have considered the situation and believe this is a matter serious enough to warrant suspension of the whip with immediate effect."

Hancock’s appearance on Celebrity SAS is set to air next year and although a full line-up is yet to be revealed, it has been reported that he will star alongside the likes of James Argent and Gareth Gates.
