Considered more shocking than Holly and Phil's awkward moment

Matt Hancock has been dealt a new blow following his I’m A Celebrity stint after his ‘secret snog’ was voted the most shocking moment caught on camera in a poll.

The MP, who was stripped of the Conservative whip for jetting off to Oz for his ITV reality appearance, resigned as health secretary due to tabloid headlines last year.

CCTV images showing the former Health Secretary and married aide Gina Coladangelo kissing in his ministerial office were published.

And the revelation saw the 44-year-old return to the backbenches as he quit for breaking lockdown rules.

‘Most shocking moment caught on camera’

The research, conducted for Paddy Power Games, reveals 25% of those surveyed picked Mr Hancock‘s private moment as the most shocking.

Elsewhere, others TV presenters and famous faces featured in non-fiction TV instances alongside several shocking fictional TV events.

The eye-opening ‘real’ happenings that followed Mr Hancock in the poll included mishaps for Madonna and Gemma Collins.

15% of poll respondents voted for Madonna falling over on stage at the Brit Awards in 2015, putting her third.

And 12% picked Gemma Collins’ colossal faceplant falling during the 2019 series of Dancing On Ice in fifth place.

But a fraction more at 14% felt Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan was most shocking.

And in second place, just behind Mr Hancock with 21%, was an incident that generated headlines for weeks and weeks from September.

That’s right – Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield ‘skipping the queue’ at the Queen‘s laying-in-state features in the most outrageous moments, too.

Matt Hancock – out of I’m A Celebrity, in a ‘shocking moments’ poll

A Paddy Power Games spokesperson said: “He may have somehow made it to third place in the jungle.

“And he may have announced he’s standing down as an MP.

Matt Hancock’s office antics will take some beating in providing the shock factor.

“But the public have made it clear that Matt Hancock’s office antics will take some beating in providing the shock factor.”
