Matt Hancock on thin ice

Holly Willoughby spoke to Matt Hancock next to Paul Chuckle live on Dancing On Ice

Dancing On Ice has been hit by fresh controversy tonight after everyone's least favourite I'm A Celebrity star and current serving MP Matt Hancock appeared on the ITV skating show.

Hancock presided over a widely criticised Covid policy in government before resigning in disgrace after being caught having an affair. The serving MP then went into the jungle on I'm A Celebrity at the end of 2022.

Tonight, Matt Hancock appeared on ITV's Dancing On Ice alongside Paul Chuckle, of the Chuckle brothers, in the audience, for no apparent reason.

Viewers reacted with white hot rage as the former Health Secretary was interviewed live by Holly Willoughby, who asked him if he would consider donning some sequins and taking part in Dancing On Ice.

Dancing On Ice viewers were furious and accused ITV of pushing Matt Hancock on the nation just a few months after his I'm A Celeb stint.
