MATT Hancock's annoying food habits are set to spark a huge jungle row on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
TV insiders have suggested that the MP's 'greedy reputation' could cause chaos, after angering his co-stars on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins when it came to dishing out food at meal times.
Suspended Tory MP Matt, 44 – who was revealed as an I'm A Celeb camp mate this week – could soon be making enemies in the camp.
Sources are suggesting the member of parliament is likely to cause huge tension in camp over his "selfish" food habits, discovered during his recent filming stint for Channel 4 show Celebrity SAS.
The former Health Secretary is said to have irked his castmates on the Channel 4 programme – where celebs are whisked away to compete in a special forces training camp – during meal times.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, a TV source said: "Matt got a reputation during filming for Celeb SAS: Who Dares Wins for being greedy and selfish when it came to the food.

"They all had to share military style rations, but Matt always got up first and helped himself to big portions, leaving less for the others – understandably this seriously annoyed his cast mates.
"A few of them spoke up about it and pulled him up for his greedy behaviour – they felt it was inconsiderate and thoughtless, especially as they were all hungry and had limited food.
"It was clear he wasn't a team player," they continued, "Matt clearly looks after number one first, and he's bound to annoy his I'm A Celebrity cast mates when he does the same thing in the jungle.
"Food is always a contentious issue in camp, so tempers will really fly if he hogs the grub and doesn't think about other people.

Hancock hasn’t just angered his constituents and other members of the Tory party by his TV signing.
Channel 4 were also left furious at his decision, as I'm A Celebrity airs months before his episode of SAS Who Dares Wins.

“And not only has Matt joined I’m A Celeb just weeks after filming SAS, but that show will air months before SAS.”
