Conservative MP Matt Hancock has been one of the most talked about campmates in I’m a Celebrity…history but what are his odds to be crowned King of the Jungle? We take a look at the latest prices on Betfred…
When the story broke that the former Health Secretary had been signed up to appear on the ITV1 show, it reverberated around social media like it was a genuinely big story. It came as no shock that he was voted to do many trials when he first dropped into camp but as time has gone by, a not insignificant number of the watching public have started to warm to him, so can the MP actually win?
Betfred still have him as a 10/1 shot to be the final person to meet Ant & Dec and win the whole show. England footballer Jill Scott is still the betting favourite, which she has been for a few days now having seen off Mike Tindall, who had been right up with her in the betting.
Yet Matt Hancock is still there and even in this very office that I’m sitting in right now typing up this article, colleagues have said that everybody makes mistakes and that because they didn’t follow the rules themselves then why should we expect others to do so?
It is an interesting Point of View and one that we heard time and time again when it came to Boris Johnson and Partygate. This PoV hasn’t been exclusive to Conservative voters either, he seems to be able to cross that divide and appeal to people who would normally not like him.
The MP has recently blended into the background and has not been involved in much conversation that has seen his screen time diminish. Having been through all the Covid grilling and the Buck Tusher Trials, the fact he’s still there says everything about how he is being perceived by the public.
Sometimes the art of winning these TV shows is to be the clear star and provide the best TV. We saw that in the Love Island Villa throughout the summer when Davide and Ekin-Su were the clear favourites with the public due to their larger than life relationship. On occasions though the winner blends into the background and considering he went in with very little support from the public, even a marginal improvement in their perception of him could lead to votes. That 10/1 price isn’t too shabby…
