I'M A Celebrity fans have slammed the show producers and accused them of bullying Matt Hancock after his recent trial.

The former Health Secretary – who has mentioned his dyslexia on the show – was tasked with solving an anagram on last night's show.

Controversial MP Matt, 44, was joined by rugby ace Mike Tindall for the challenge to win snacks for camp last night.

The politician – who was disgraced last year when his affair with his aide Gina Coladengelo was revealed – has been defended by viewers.

Matt, who claimed to have entered the jungle to raise awareness for dyslexia earlier this month, was given a spelling task last night.

The former Health Secretary was faced with a jumble of letters during the latest Deals On Wheels task but struggled to spell.

The letters were hidden among 99 red balloons, which all had to be popped using sharp spikes fixed to the top of their helmets.

The pair then had to solve an anagram before time ran out.

Struggling, Matt told Mike, 44: “I’m terrible at anagrams. I’m dyslexic, so all the letters are already in an anagram, so it’s on you.” 

Fans at home were left disappointed to see Matt being dished out the spelling challenge, as they hit out to bosses about “bullying”.

“I know that a lot of people don't like Matt, but does anybody else think that putting a dyslexic on an anagram challenge was a totally wrong?” one viewer wrote to Reddit.

“Bullies can't win in any situation,” a second chimed in.

Fans were quick to react to Matt's dyslexia admission, after previously slamming him for taking so long to mention his struggle with dyslexia.

It took Matt two weeks to speak about it, despite insisting his main reason for entering I’m A Celebrity was to raise awareness of the learning difficulty.

It comes days after I'm A Celeb was hit with a wave of Ofcom complaints over Matt being “bullied” by his co-stars.

The broadcasting regulator revealed they had received almost 2,000 complaints since the ITV show has been airing its new series.

Of those 1,159 came from fans who were hitting back against the working West Suffolk MP being on the show.

But a whopping 809 were said to have come with concern over Matt's welfare, as they hit out at “bullying” in the jungle camp.

In a statement about the figures, Ofcom said: “It’s worth being aware that under our rules – and taking into account freedom of expression – there's no ban on any particular person taking part in programmes.

“However, if the mere presence of a person is likely to cause offence, we would expect broadcasters to take steps to mitigate or justify that offence. How they do that editorially, is up to them.”

It comes after I'm A Celeb fans took to social media to complain about “bullying” on the show, asking bosses to intervene.
