Who Dares Wins contestant Jermaine Pennant who has ripped into former health secretary Matt Hancock.
Pennant said, I had a slight smile when his number was called out! My first thought was ‘’you can’t lose this’’, and my second was ”the nation is spurring you on”.
We’re not fighters and we both know it wasn’t going to be a good boxing match, but I just focused on not losing – and that’s what happened.
Hancock didn’t say sorry behind the scenes – all he talked about was getting caught with another woman
Surprisingly, Matt didn’t talk about breaking lockdown rules on the show. He mostly talked about his
mistake of getting caught with another woman and falling in love, but he didn’t really talk about the decisions he made during lockdown or him not abiding by rules.
Ex-Health Secretary should have apologised to the millions who couldn’t see loved ones
I thought he could have come out and apologised to the millions of people who couldn’t see loved ones during that time. I thought he could have gone into the mirror room and apologised, but instead, he talked just about his affair.
Hancock can do as many shows as he wants – he won’t change opinion unless he gives sincere apology
I think Matt Hancock is trying to do as many good shows as he can to try and improve his persona. However, it does not matter what he does. Him going on SAS or I’m a Celeb is not going to change peoples’ opinions of him to the thousands who lost loved ones.
The only thing that would do that is a sincere apology. He can go on every show, and it’ll make no difference.
Hancock didn’t open up fully – we all felt he was there as part of a game
Some of us felt like Hancock wasn’t opening up fully, and that he was there as part of a game. There were no heart-to-hearts or anything like that. We were all too focused on the show. I don’t think any of us really felt like we knew Matt Hancock.
We didn’t really talk about the fight. It was just a task we both had to do. We didn’t talk about the fight, but it was a little bit awkward standing next to him after. Once we got back to the barracks, we spoke about it a little bit, but it’s what we signed up for. We both had to defend ourselves!” We didn’t like it, but we were both ready for it.
I’d rather have watched Liverpool lose 7-0 to Everton than lose to Hancock
I’d rather watch Liverpool lose 7-0 to Everton than lose to Matt Hancock. I can get over the former, but I could never live down the latter. It would have followed me for the rest of my life.
