Furious I'm A Celebrity fans complain to Ofcom over Matt Hancock scene
"Made a complaint to Ofcom for the first and only time in my life tonight."
I’m A Celebrity fans have complained to Ofcom over one particular scene involving - you guessed it - Matt Hancock.
The scene involved the 44-year-old bathing and one viewer claimed it "left them in tears", The Sun reported.
Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway has also spoken out on the matter.
The MP entered the camp on Wednesday evening, much to the dismay of some of his campmates and viewers, with some fans suggesting that his entrance may lead to a mass exit, or with Hancock having to leave.
After taking part in a challenge with co-star and comedian Seann Walsh, Hancock was seen taking his first jungle "shower", washing his face and body in a rock pool.
Fans, however, were not happy with what they saw and complained to the Office of Communications.
One wrote on Twitter: “Made a complaint to Ofcom for the first and only time in my life tonight. I should not be left in tears at the end of an entertainment show.”
Another said: “Ofcom, I want to make a complaint. I’ve just seen Matt Hancock showering.”
If Matt Hancock gets to just stroll into camp instead of going a task like this I’ll be complaining to Ofcom #ImACeleb

A third said: “This is an official Ofcom complaint WHY have I just seen Matt Hancock in the shower.”
Another added: "Watching Matt Hancock sing… shower topless… then slurp his tea in a mole tunnel… not how I planned to spend my Wednesday night.”
Former campmate Kate Garraway also spoke out about the matter on Good Morning Britain.
The 55-year-old said: “I'm not sure you're meant to swim in that pond with soap actually.
"That's like a natural thing. I think you're supposed to get in the bath or the shower."

Co-host Ben Shephard quipped: "So he is now contaminating the local flora and fauna?" to which Garraway said: "Ah I don't know. I was trying to look to see if he had a bar of soap in his hand."
Shephard continued: "He had a loofah."
Talking of her jungle showers, Garraway conceded that on the show you "do feel filthy, so you do want to clean yourself".
