OK, we understand we are fuelling the fire (and his eventual comeback). The former Health secretary, who is taking part in ITV's I'm a Celebrity... this year, has been roundly mocked for calling (poor) Ed Sheeran one of his favourite artists and singing his single Perfect on the show.
His vocals later prompted Dec to say Sheeran would be “gutted” to hear Hancock was a fan, while Ant burst into laughter. On Twitter, the reaction was a bit more brutal, with one fan writing: “Hearing matt hancock sing ed sheeran should be considered a hate crime and a crime against humanity [sic].” Ouch. Sheeran is yet to respond to the news that Hancock is a fan of his. Via NME
