fans of I’m A Celebrity disturbed by Matt Hancock ‘re-enacting’ CCTV footage with girlfriend Gina
Matt Hancock’s reunion on the bridge with his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo during the I’m A Celebrity bridge during the final couldn’t help but remind viewers of the moment the pair were caught kissing in CCTV footage when they were both married.
Following his elimination from camp, Hancock spoke to Ant and Dec about his time on the series, as well as the qualms his fellow celebrities and members of the public had about him taking part in the first place.
He then ventured over to the infamous bridge for his exit photo op, leaving his hat on the side ahead of posing for photographers, before he and his girlfriend Gina embraced on the bridge.

Not only did the footage spark controversy due to the fact that they were both married to other people at the time, but it also took place at a time when social distancing guidelines were still in place amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Millionaire lobbyist Gina worked for Hancock at the time as an aide, having been hired as an unpaid advisor the previous year.
