Campaigners flew a plane over I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of here! in the woods with a message to former health secretary Matt Hancock, which read: “Covid loved ones get out of here!”
The plane carrying the 35 ft banner flew around the Australian camp for two hours on Tuesday. It is organized by the campaign group 38 Degrees, who are working with families who have lost loved ones to Covid-19 for justice.
The organization says a noise complaint against the pilot suggests it is not unheard of in the woods.
Since joining the ITV reality show, Hancock, 44, has faced much criticism over her decision from the public and fellow politicians.
In June last year, MP resigned as health secretary after he was caught violating social distancing rules due to the coronavirus by having an affair in his ministerial office with his aide Gina Coladangelo.
On the show, he said it was a “mistake” and that he was “in love”, adding that he was looking for “a little forgiveness”.
Matthew McGregor, chief executive of 38 Degrees, said: “No one has forgotten how Matt Hancock behaved during the Covid-19 pandemic, not the public, not his campmates, and certainly not the people who have lost loved ones.
“Our message across the sky made it clear to Matt Hancock that you should represent the people of West Suffolk and give the Covid Bereavement Family the answers they deserve, instead of playing games. to earn dingo dollars and plastic stars.”
During his time in the woods, West Suffolk Congressman Hancock was elected to take part in six consecutive Bushtucker Trials in which he dodged the creatures in an attempt to win as many stars as possible for the camp.
A spokesperson for Hancock said: “Matt continues to assist with the Covid investigation and he will continue to meet all deadlines.

“Matt handed over his phone and granted full access to all of his emails and text messages, when requested by Congress.
“Matt’s dyslexia screening and teacher training bill was read for a second time just days after I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! end.
“By joining the show, Matt hopes to raise the profile of his dyslexia campaign and will use the platform to talk about an issue he truly cares about in front of millions of people.
“Matt is determined that no child should leave primary school without knowing if he or she has dyslexia.”
ITV did not comment.
