Matt Hancock to stand down as an MP

OHMYGOSSIP — Matt Hancock is to stand down as an MP, just days after taking part in ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’.
The former Health Secretary finished third on the ITV jungle-based series, and less than two weeks after his camp success the 44-year-old politician said he wants to “engage with the public in new ways” outside Parliament.
Matt – who was suspended by the Conservative Party after it was revealed he had signed up for the programme – wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak: “It has been an honour to serve in Parliament and represent the people of West Suffolk.
“I will play my part in the debate about the future of our country and engage with the public in new ways.
“There was a time when I thought the only way to influence the public debate was in Parliament, but I’ve realised there’s far more to it than that.
“For my part, I want to do things differently. I have discovered a whole new world of possibilities which I am excited to explore – new ways for me to communicate with people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
“It has been an honour to serve in parliament and represent the people of West Suffolk. I will play my part in the debate about the future of our country and engage with the public in new ways.”
Matt has been the MP for West Suffolk since 2010, but was widely criticised for leaving his constituents to take part in reality show ‘I’m A Celebrity’.
He also wrote on his Instagram: “I have today announced I will not be standing at the next General Election
“I look forward to exploring new ways to communicate with people of all ages and from all backgrounds.”
Matt quit as Health Secretary after he came under fire when he was caught kissing his former aide – and now-girlfriend – Gina Coladangelo, during the COVID pandemic, breaking his own social distancing guidance in the process.
