Matt Hancock starts TV company after raking it in from I’m A Celeb stint

Former health secretary Matt Hancock is set to rake it in from future TV work as he has set up his own TV company.

The new business venture for the former politician comes just months after he starred on ITV's I'm A Celebrity alongside Seann Walsh, Chris Moyles and Babatunde Aleshe and other famous faces.

Despite huge public backlash to the controversial politician featuring in the programme, he was a hit with many viewers and made it to the final coming in third place.

Reports have claimed Hancock was paid a whopping £320,000 for his stint in the jungle, with him handing over £10k to charity after he returned home.

However some critics have labelled his donation as "pathetic" compared to the full amount he took home.

Now the former health secretary is keen to make his name in TV, as he has reportedly established a television programming and broadcasting company called Greenhazel.

Official records on Companies House list him as sole director with the business address Newmarket in Suffolk.

No further details have been shared on what programmes will be created by Greenhazel but it's thought the former Tory MP was hoping to launch a television career, with a focus on documentaries.

The former politician is also due to appear on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins later this year.

Earlier this month Hancock appeared in the audience of ITV's Dancing On Ice joined by his girlfriend Gina Colangelo.

When chatting to presenter Holly Willoughby, he didn't rule out appearing on the reality skating show in the future with viewers claiming they wouldn't be surprised if he did appear on next year's show.

One said: "Would not surprise me if Matt Hancock is on the next season."

While another penned: "Matt Hancock is going to be on it next year isn’t he?"

And a third predicted: "I can totally see Matt Hancock on Dancing On Ice next year."

While a fourth said: "And just when you think this show couldn't get any worse they bring on Matt Hancock, one of the most hated men the UK, but ITV trying to make him a celeb."
