Seann Walsh of I’m A Celebrity used a four-letter word on stage to insult Matt Hancock.
On Monday night, when playing at the Soho Theatre in London, comedian Seann made a joke about his 44-year-old politician campmate Matt from the ITV series.
Seann, 37, recalled how he felt demonized after kissing Katya Jones, 33, his dance partner on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, behind the back of his fiancée, and quipped, “Have you ever had an entire country think you’re a c***?
“It’s quite a lot to take. It’s quite difficult when an entire country gets together and decides you’re a c***. You don’t really know how to deal with it.
“Unless of course, you’re Matt Hancock, and you just come third in the jungle.”
He asked the audience if they had had jet lag dreams after returning from Australia last week, making light of his experiences in the process. F*king mental.
“I had this dream I was standing in what seemed like a jungle and Matt Hancock appeared from the bushes and we became undercover moles and then friends.”
While performing the first of a series of sold-out shows, Seann acknowledged that the show had done wonders for him.
Here we are, he said “Here we are. Sold out, as well. It’s amazing. About three weeks ago I couldn’t sell out a phone box.”
However, he utilized his stage to share the true motivation behind his participation in the competition, which former England player Jill Scott won.
Seann said he had made a fortune in his twenties but lost it due to a financial error. Grace Adderley, Seann’s girlfriend, is currently expecting their first child.
I’m not the kind of guy who saves money, he said. All of the money I made in my twenties, including the proceeds from Live At The Apollo, was lost.
“I didn’t realize I had a lot of money. I had so much. It’s insane how much money I had.
“All of the money went – every bit. I’d love to be able to tell you that with all the money it was like The Wolf Of Wall Street.
“Like, ‘I was like Leonardo DiCaprio sniffing lines off a hooker’s a**e.’
“But what actually happened was I wasn’t paying attention to a variable mortgage.”
