I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! contestant Matt Hancock’s girlfriend Gina Coladangelo is reportedly flying out to Australia to support the former Health Secretary during his jungle stint.
The 44-year-old’s partner is his former aide and the couple will be in the same country while Hancock competes with the other celebrities.
Insiders claim that Gina will land Down Under within the week and it is assumed that the pair will be reunited once he leaves the jungle.

Matt and Gina were previously caught kissing on CCTV in Whitehall and the infamous footage cost Matt both his job and marriage with wife Martha.
Due to his reality TV stint, the Tory party suspended the politician and many have come to the party’s defence.
Climate Minister Graham Stuart said: “MPs should be attending to their duties and with so many people working from home these days, it is possible to work from wherever you want in the world.”
He continued: “It’s not really possible to do that from the jungle. While you’re eating various worms and sticking your head in unpleasant places, it’s quite hard to concentrate on what’s going on in your Suffolk constituency.”
However, some politicians took a more brutal approach and have slammed Hancock’s decision to take part in the ITV show.
Alistair Campbell exclaimed: “He’s a bit of a tw**. Let’s cut to the chase, he’s a bit of a tw**.”
I’m A Celeb bosses have explained their choice and executive producer Olly Nash has said that the show has “put in politicians over the years” and “people with strong views about certain things”.
This means that situations “sometimes play out in camp” and “sometimes it doesn’t”.
However, Olly defended ITV and claimed that it “is not a question of trying to divide the camp” as they have “never” tried to “deliberately divide” the contestants.
Nash stated that it is the celebrities’ choice “to come into camp” and it is “up to them if they want to leave”.
ITV presenter Lorraine Kelly was recently left enraged by the revelation that Matt may be exempt from some trials due to a health condition.
Hancock has trench foot which means he may be allowed to not take part in challenges involving water and Kelly asked “what was the point” of him being on the show if he couldn’t do all the tasks.
