The Loose Women panellist was met by her sister Carina after exiting the jungle, and they called their dad on speaker phone, who revealed that he thought that Matt Hancock would be the first person voted out by the public. Charlene laughed, replying: “It turns out I’m less popular than Matt Hancock Dad, who knew?!”

Charlene and Matt had a complicated relationship on the show, with Charlene refusing to sleep in the RV with the MP due to her role outside of the reality show as a journalist.

Speaking to her fellow campmate Sue on the show, she explained at the time: “I’m an impartial journalist, I can’t be sharing a room with a sitting MP because that just doesn’t sit well with me impartiality-wise. And I just think, if he were ever to become minister again how can I sit and question him about anything when I’ve shared a room with him?”

Matt placed third on the show 

She added: “Charlene also explained: “I would say that every conversation we’ve had that Matt’s been here constantly involves me doing calculations in my head about impartiality and making sure it doesn’t go too much in one direction. Constantly thinking about those guidelines and the broadcasting rules. It’s a constant thing that’s in my head on a daily basis.”

Speaking to Bush Telegraph, Sue said: “I absolutely see her point. When Charlene was talking about having to have impartiality being a newsreader it made total sense to me why it wouldn’t be great for her to be in an RV with Matt. Awkward.”
