Matt Hancock has donated a portion of his £320,000 I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! appearance fee to a hospice in Bury St Edmunds.

The West Suffolk MP appeared on the ITV show in November and finished in third place, behind actor Owen Warner and footballer Jill Scott.

Records on the MP’s register showed that on December 14 last year, Mr Hancock received £320,000 from Lifted Entertainment of ITV Studios for the appearance, which lasted 30 days – a total of 720 hours.

Ahead of entering the jungle, Mr Hancock said he went on I’m a Celebrity to “show what I am like as a person” as well as raising awareness of dyslexia.

A spokesman for Mr Hancock said he had “donated £10,000 to St Nicholas Hospice in Suffolk and the British Dyslexia Association, off the back of his appearance on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!”

St Nicholas Hospice is based in Bury St Edmunds.

A statement from the charity read: "We can confirm Matt Hancock MP has donated to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

"We are grateful for his generosity and his gift will be used to help fun the care and support we provide.

"Without our community's kindness and generous support, we would struggle to keep our services going.

"Every gift we receive is a vital contribution, especially during these challenging times.

"As is always the case, the decision on whether or not to publicly share further detail of their donation remains with individual supporters and we respect their choice.

"We thank Mr Hancock for his support."

After leaving I’m a Celebrity, Mr Hancock announced that he would not be standing for the Conservatives at the next general election.
