HUMZA Yousaf has said he "couldn't care less" about Matt Hancock's upcoming appearance on ITV reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 

Hancock, the former UK health secretary, has had the Tory whip suspended and faced cross-party political condemnation following his decision to join the reality TV programme.

He was forced to resign as a minister last year after he was caught having an affair with his closest aide. 

Yousaf, who worked with Hancock during the pandemic, said there are far bigger issues to be concerned about than what jungle challenges he faces.

Speaking at the Bangholm Medical Centre in Edinburgh, he said: “I couldn’t care less, frankly.

"I genuinely have so much else on my plate that I just couldn’t care less what he is doing, what he’s eating, and what challenges he’s involved in.

“I wish nobody any ill, I have to say, and I dealt with Matt Hancock when I was first in this role, but what Matt Hancock chooses to do is for Matt Hancock.

“I genuinely, without any disrespect, couldn’t care less.”

When asked if he could follow suit down the line, Yousaf simply replied: “No.”
