I'm A Celeb winner Jill Scott reveals show wages after Matt Hancock's astonishing pay and says 'I'm going to complain!' | The Sun

I'M A CELEB winner Jill Scott didn’t earn as much as Matt Hancock for their jungle stints and joked today "I'm going to complain!"

The retired England footballer was crowned Queen of the Jungle in the 2022 series while the MP landed in third place.

The Sun today revealed he pocketed a staggering £320,000 despite vowing to donate a proportion of his fee to charity.

Asked if her sign-up fee was "higher or lower" than the disgraced health secretary, popular Jill laughed and told Good Morning Britain: "Right, I'm going to complain … a lot lower."

The Lioness – who runs her own coffee shop in Manchester – quipped: "If I’d got that, I could’ve opened another coffee shop."

Jill's rumoured fee was thought to be around £120,00.

Jill appeared on Friday's installment of GMB and was also probed on her friendships with her fellow campmates and was asked if they had a WhatsApp group.

She denied knowing if Matt, 44, was a member of the group.

"We do have a WhatsApp group actually, so we’re all in there,’ she said, before show host Kate Garraway said she had learned that Hancock might not be in it.

She said: "Is he actually not in it? Ok, I'll check when I get off here, I thought he was.

"I feel like I've just given a political answer there, I learned something in the jungle."

Jill said she has remained the closest with show runner up Owen Warner saying he was "like my little brother."

Hancock, who appeared on the programme while still serving as a sitting MP for West Suffolk, previously claimed he was entering the jungle to raise awareness around dyslexia.

He insisted his motivation wasn't financial and announced that he would be making a donation to causes supporting the learning difficulty, as well as St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds.

But Hancock donated just a fraction of his fee to the end-of-life care centre and the British Dyslexia Association, The Mirror reports.

His spokesperson told the paper: "As well as raising the profile of his dyslexia campaign in front of 11 million viewers, Matt's 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."

He was subjected to numerous disgusting tasks while taking part, including being made to eat a camel's penis and being covered in creepy crawlies.

His fee of £320,000 from Lifted Entertainment, ITV Studios, was listed on the MP's register of financial interests.
