    Abdul, a journalist and filmmaker, said: "I couldn’t believe it when I saw him. I was looking at him for about two minutes before I realised it actually was him.

    "You don’t go to Turkey for a holiday. Especially at the moment – it’s freezing."

    People joked about his visit on Twitter – saying: "Matt Hancock spotted buying a fake t-shirt in Turkey. Wonder if he's getting a hair transplant."

    Another tweeted: "Matt Hancock was spotted in Turkey lol. Probably getting a new hair transplant with that cheque lol."

    Former Health Secretary Hancock was the most controversial contestant during November's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here series.

    As a serving MP and somebody whose handling of the Covid-19 pandemic was heavily criticised, he was scrutinised for his appearance in the show by members of the public, campmates and Westminster alike.

    He went on to finish third in the ITV programme behind Queen of the Jungle Jill Scott – a member of the England Lionesses' Euro 2022 football team – and runner-up Owen Warner – the Hollyoaks actor.

    A week after leaving the jungle, Hancock announced his decision to stand down as a politician at the next General Election.

    Matt Hancock's representative has been approached for a comment on his Turkey trip.
