I’m A Celebrity fans spot ‘feud’ as campmate missing from final goodbye meal snap

‘And not a cockroach in sight’

I’m A Celeb fans believe they’ve confirmed a feud between this year’s campmates after Charlene White shared a photo from the goodbye meal on social media.

As this year’s series came to a close the contestants sat down together for one last time, in a setting that did not require them to compete to eat.

White, who was the first of the 10 celebs to be voted out, shared a picture on Instagram of the outing and fans were quick to notice the rather obvious absence on one particular guest.

You guessed it, Matt Hancock.

The MP, who finished third behind Jill Scott and Owen Warner, and his partner Gina Coladangelo, were missing from the snap as the rest of the jungle crew happily posed for pictures with big smiles.

White captioned the post: “Last one’s standing after a food and wine filled night with all the camp mates, family & friends. Brilliant final meal to officially mark the end of our crazy @imacelebrity experience.”

The ITV Loose Women panelist added: “It was a blast.”

Some commenters on the post were quick to point out the MP was not in attendance, with one user questioning where the “corrupt” and “disgraced former Health Minister” was.

Another joked, well, maybe: “And not a cockroach in sight.”

A third criticised Hancock, saying: “Showing his true colours also refusing interviews I bet the rest were relived to be getting rid of him.”

Hancock was the only I’m A Celeb finalist to not appear for press interviews on Monday.

Also absent from her snap was Boy George, Seann Walsh, Sue Cleaver and queen of the jungle, Scott.

Charlene later uploaded a video of “dad of the camp” Mike Tindall’s final speech at the  dinner, in which he labelled the latest group “the best in 22 years”.

The former England rugby star, 44, also encouraged them all to keep in touch when they touch back down at home and go about their normal day-to-day lives.

The post comes after Charlene told Ant and Dec why she didn’t sleep in the SUV with Hancock, claiming it was because she is an “impartial journalist”.

“I can’t be sharing a room with a sitting MP because that just doesn’t sit well with me impartiality wise. And I just think, if he were ever to become minister again how can I sit and question him about anything when I’ve shared a room with him?”
