Matt Hancock told he runs like an 'ostrich'
Former Health Secretary Matt Hancock is one of several contestants to take part in the limit-testing Channel 4 show Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
In the first episode of tonight’s series, Matt joined celebrities like Michelle Heaton and Gareth Gates as they took part in their first trial.
The celebrities were asked to make their way across some terrifyingly high wires and, while some stars stuck the landing, Matt was left hanging after a spectacular fall.
However, just as the show began, viewers were left in stitches as Channel 4’s voiceover introducing the show made a savage dig at the former MP.
At the opening of the programme, this voiceover could be heard saying: “16 recruits in an inhospitable landscape next tonight, as the country’s favourite stars and Matt Hancock all take part in Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.”
