I’m A Celebrity star Matt Hancock had the “cheek” to ask for leftovers at dinner despite enjoying a feast of a barbecue earlier in the day – and Owen Warner wouldn’t hear of it.

On Thursday’s episode, fellow campmates were treated to a meal of eel after A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas, comedian Babatúndé Aléshé and Hollyoaks star Owen won an eight-star full house for the field during the Bushtucker Trial.

That same day, former Health Secretary Hancock, Lioness Jill Scott, and Corrie star Sue Cleaver were given an upscale meal on the beach that the rest of the contestants were forced to miss.

After dinner, the celebrities were all sitting around the fire when Hancock – who was sitting in his camp leader’s chair – remarked: “I know it sounds crazy, but if there’s anything left over I’ll take it.”

Owen – who has made no secret of how hungry he is at camp – couldn’t believe the politician’s audacity.

Pointing out that Hancock had just eaten a whole surf and turf, the 23-year-old exclaimed in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Is he asking for some of our food?! Cheek!’

Several onlookers were equally astounded that Hancock would even consider asking for more food considering the treat the 44-year-old had just indulged in.

“After the surf and weed barbecue Matt was asking me for, do you have any leftovers from dinner, really Matt?” one fan tweeted.

“Matt’s cheek asking for leftovers when he’s just been in and had a greasy BBQ,” another incredulous wrote.

One individual said he was “astounded that Matt asked for food after he had the luxury of barbecuing,” while another added, “Did Matt Hancock literally ask others for food after having a beach barbeque?” Oh!’

‘Matt Hancock asks for food after the barbecue. Man has no shame’, wrote someone else.

Hancock’s shameless request for more food wasn’t the only reason the dinner sparked controversy, as Charlene White was also accused by fans of breaking another rule for assisting in the preparation of meals.

Since the Loose Women host is the camp’s deputy leader, she’s not supposed to be doing any work, but she’s still trying to help out chefs Owen and Scarlette in the kitchen.

The most recent ‘rule breach’ comes after the ITV reporter refused to sleep in the camper van, despite being allocated a bed in the vehicle with camp leader Hancock.

I’m A Celebrity returns tomorrow at 21.00 on ITV.
