The journalist revealed she "couldn't hug family at the funeral" and slammed "rule-breaking" MPs when her beloved aunt passed away.
Insiders have warned that the former Health Secretary should expect a grilling by co-star Charlene over the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Sun revealed that Matt is being paid close to half a million pounds by I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.
Insiders told The Sun how the Conservative MP had landed a payday worth around £400,000 to take part in the ITV series – sparking fury among his critics.
A source said: “Matt’s pay deal with I’m A Celebrity is around £400,000 which is one of the largest ever show fees to have been paid out.
“ITV were keen for viewers to think the deal was worth around £150,000 but in reality it’s over double that.
“They asked him to be on the show three times in a matter of weeks and the money definitely helped seal the deal.”
The under-fire former Health Minister has insisted he will make a sizeable donation to charity, but the size of his deal has caused outrage – with those who know him saying his West Suffolk constituents will be apoplectic with rage at the size of the cash deal.
Matt is now in quarantine on the Gold Coast ahead of the show – in a huge £2million mansion with a huge pool.
