Babatunde has amusing take on Matt Hancock 2021 scandal
As the I’m A Celebrity campmates get to know new arrival Matt Hancock, comedian Babatúndé Aleshe couldn’t help but crack a few jokes about the MP’s cheating scandal.
Matt Hancock stepped down from his role as Health Secretary in 2021 after pictures emerged showing him kissing aide Gina Coladangelo, who he eventually left his wife for.
The scandal outraged the nation as Matt admitted to breaching social distancing guidelines during the affair.

And on Thursday night’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Babatúndé Aleshe grilled Matt on the relationship, telling him: “You were grabbing booty bruv.”
Dad of three Matt said he’s still with Gina, but called the consequences of his actions ‘really tough’.
“I messed up and I fessed up,” he told the Celebrity Gogglebox star. “I resigned and it’s no excuse, but I fell in love, right? That also had a lot of other consequences obviously.”
Babatúndé joked: “You didn’t just ‘fall in love’ you were grabbing booty bruv!”
Later in the Bush Telegraph, he told the camera: “Matt was grabbing the booty bruv, man grabbed the bunda on front page!”
