CAROL Vorderman has revealed she felt "sick in her throat" as Matt Hancock was branded "hot" after his shower scene.
The former Health Secretary shocked I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here viewers as he was seen stripping off for a shower last week.
MP Matt, 44, entered the jungle earlier this month despite public outcry, and a petition asking for him to be removed from the show.
However, the politician has won over an army of fans through his time on the programme, who have been flocking to social media.
Matt – who broke Covid-19 lockdown guidelines when he had an affair with his aide Gina Coladangelo – is now being defended on TikTok.
A number of accounts have been set up in his name, including 'Hot Matt Hancock', 'Matt Hancock Is A Fittie' and 'We Love Matt Hancock'.

"There's a little bit of sick in my throat when I think about that," she said of the shower scene on This Morning earlier this week.
"Nope, we can move on; I mean, each to their own but, no."
"There is a line that has been crossed some would say," This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby chimed in to agree.
Earlier this month, Matt was seen stripping off to take a wash after his first trial – which saw his doused with gunge.
The MP sat down in a nearby lake rather than pulling an Owen Warner and having a moment in the iconic waterfall.
His unique way of bathing left Seann a little speechless, at one point realising he was staring at the MP before walking away.
It comes after it was revealed I'm A Celeb had been rocked by nearly 2,000 Ofcom complaints about Matt Hancock in the jungle.

The broadcasting regulator confirmed that around 1,100 of these complaints were directly linked to the MP being in the jungle, with some also voicing concerns about how he was being treated.
Matt has faced major backlash since it was revealed he was appearing on the long-running celebrity competition on ITV.
