Piers Morgan, 57, blasted Matt Hancock in a furious post after the former Health Secretary agreed to take part in the ITV reality series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The MP for West Suffolk touched down in Brisbane, Australia on Tuesday night ahead of his stint on the popular series.
The Uncensored presenter has since taken to social media and hit out at Matt’s claim he is not taking part in the programme for money.
Piers has also called for the former Health Secretary to “resign” with immediate effect.
It comes after Matt spoke out in his column where he addressed his reason behind going into the jungle and assured the public it was not for cash but to enlighten the nation.
As someone living with dyslexia, he explained he wanted to bring awareness to the issue.
Writing in The Sun, Matt wrote: “And no, it wasn’t the cheque that changed my mind. I will be making a donation to St Nicholas Hospice in Suffolk and causes supporting dyslexia off the back of my appearance.
“I will, of course, also declare the amount I receive from the show to Parliament to ensure complete transparency, as normal.”
Taking to Twitter, Piers reacted to Matt’s confirmation tweet about joining the I’m A Celebrity lineup.
It read: “Next week, I’m going into the jungle, as part of this year’s @imacelebrity.”
In view of his 7.9 million followers, Piers fumed: “What a load of disingenuous horse-sh*t… of course, you’re doing it for the money, at a time when you should be doing your job as an MP during a terrible financial crisis, helping your constituents and voting in Parliament.
“You should resign immediately.”
