Denise Welch defends co-star Charlene White over I’m A Celeb exit and slams Matt Hancock
Denise Welch, 64, took to Twitter last night to praise her Loose Women colleague Charlene White, 42, after she was the first campmate to be voted out of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The ITV star went on to aim a jibe at the people who voted for former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, 44, over Charlene. In view of her 543,000 followers, Denise wrote: “Charlene missed her babies.She stuck to her principles. “People have very short memories regarding Hancock,” Denise continued with reference to Matt’s behaviour during the coronavirus pandemic. “I’m very proud of my friends Charlene and Sue,” she concluded with heart emojis, also mentioning campmate and Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver, 59.Last night, Charlene failed to secure enough votes from the public and, aside from Olivia Attwood who left within the first 24 hours for medical reasons, became the first campmate to leave the jungle. Denise’s followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the public’s decision to save Matt over Charlene, despite the massive backlash the MP received upon entering the jungle. Maxine wrote: “I still can't believe there's people defending him.They obviously didn't go through the pain of losing a loved one and not being able to be with them. “Try losing both your grandmas in the same week after not being able to see them for 18 months.”Amalia penned: “I'm so shocked that he's still in there. Can't get my breath.
