Fay Jones has criticised her fellow Conservative party member, Matt Hancock’s decision to appear on ITV hit show, I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

The Brecon and Radnorshire MP said Mr Hancock’s appearance on the show is “not right”, adding that she would never follow in his footsteps.

Mr Hancock chose to enter the jungle last week but has faced much criticism from large parts of the UK public, and Ms Jones believes this is justified due to the devotion to the job needed to be an MP.

Fay Jones MP said: “I think his constituents would be perfectly entitled to feel outraged, we’re not emergency services, we are busy five days a week, and we often get cases that we need to help constituents with that are time-sensitive.

“I think it’s really not right for him to have gone, I’d never find myself in his shoes because I’d never go, this is a full-time job on top of another full-time job, between Westminster and here. [Brecon].

“I’m always busy in the week, and I spend my weekends talking to my constituents.”

However, despite the negatives, Ms Jones admitted she did feel Mr Hancock was giving a good account of himself on the show.

“If we look past the fact that he absolutely shouldn’t be there, I think he’s doing well, he’s done quite well in the trials and he is giving it all a good go,” said Ms Jones.

Even so, when pressed on whether Mr Hancock could be the next king of the jungle, the Brecon and Radnorshire MP firmly ruled it out.

Ms Jones said: “ I hope I don’t see him winning it because that will create even more problems, I think it will end up where he will have to do everything, every challenge, and the public will keep him around until the last possible chance and then they’ll vote him off.”
