“Following discussion with Matt Hancock, I have reviewed the situation and believe it is a serious enough issue to warrant suspending his party membership with immediate effect,” Simon Hart, who is responsible for party discipline, said today.
Hancock, who resigned from the government after he was photographed kissing a colleague in breach of lockdown rules, joins pop singer Boy George, former rugby player Mike Tyndall and footballer Jill Scott who are expected to join the reality show .
In this show, various celebrities are faced with challenges, such as eating insects or being locked in the same room with snakes, before the TV audience decides with their votes who leaves.
