Matt Hancock, 44, finished in third place in the latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The West Suffolk MP was confronted by Piers Morgan, 57, when the show contestant landed back in the UK following his stint in the jungle.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter took to Twitter yesterday and told fans he had an “awkward” encounter with the reality TV star after he spotted him at Heathrow airport.
Matt was reunited with his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo following his three-week stint in Australia but she arrived back in the UK without the MP.
It comes after it was reported the MP had work duties Down Under.
Piers, who has been critical of Matt’s jungle appearance, said he told the politician he would have given him a “good kicking”.
In view of his 8.2 million followers, the Uncensored host tweeted: “Just bumped into Matt Hancock at Heathrow.
“I told him I’d been giving him a good kicking the entire time he was in the jungle. He said he knew.
“It was the purest personification of #Awks.”
Matt’s long-awaited return to England follows the former health secretary coming third during I’m A Celebrity’s live final on Sunday night.
It comes after Jill Scott was crowned the show winner with Owen Warner coming in second place.
Gina jetted out of Australia on Tuesday and returned to the UK solo but the independent MP remained Down Under to cash in on his new found fame with a lucrative interview.
Matt will appear in tonight’s upcoming I’m A Celebrity homecoming special.
His girlfriend admits the MP underestimated the strong reaction his stint in the jungle would have.

She told the ITV cameras: “I think it’s fair to say that Matt underestimated the scale of the reaction to him coming into the jungle.
“He’s made of tough stuff, this summer we trekked around Mont Blanc together in 4 days.
“My last words to him were ‘Just be yourself, be the Matt I know and it’ll go really well.'”
Meanwhile, the former health secretary was paid £45,000 for taking part in Channel 4 reality show Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The fee – revealed on the register of MPs’ financial interests – is a fraction of the £400,000 he is reported to have got for ITV’s I’m A Celebrity.
According to reports, Matt filmed the Channel 4 show before flying out to the Australian jungle, but it will be screened next year.
He will have to reveal his ITV fee in a future edition of the register.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The Coming Out Show airs tonight at 9.15pm on ITV1 and ITV Hub.
