MATT Hancock reunited with his political chums last night for the launch of his new book – but there were glaring omissions on the guest list.
None of the MP's I'm A Celebrity co-stars were in attendance appearing to confirm long-running rumblings of a feud between campmates and Matt.
The third-place finisher didn't look too bothered though as he rubbed shoulders with Boris Johnson's dad Stanley, former Chancellor George Osborne and Jeffrey Archer.
He also cuddled up to his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo, who travelled to Australia to greet him as he left the jungle.
Matt was also supported by Loved Island stars Faye Winter and Teddy Soares, who defended their decision to attend.
Faye wrote on Instagram: "Yes we went to Matt Hancock's book releases, why because we are here for the person not the media portrayed facade. No one should deal with that alone."

I'm A Celebrity stars were recently accused of "bullying" Matt after he was snubbed from a camp WhatsApp group.
Campmate Scarlette Douglas admitted the politician was not a part of the group chat.
The A Place In The Sun presenter revealed Mike Tindall – who Matt has denied bullied him – is the group's admin.
She then told how the group thought Matt “might be too busy” to take part in it.

Scarlette added: "I’m not the admin of that WhatsApp group so if Mike wants to invite him he absolutely can, but it’s not me to put the invitation out so we’ll see what happens.
"He might be busy you never know, he’s doing a lot of stuff, he’s got a lot of press coming up so he might be too busy."
During the series, some viewers feared the former Health Secretary was being deliberately picked on by some of his campmates in the Australian jungle.
Following his camp exit, Matt insisted he did not feel "bullied" after he faced a grilling over his behaviour during the pandemic.
Matt – who lost the Conservative Party whip by stepping foot on the reality series – was questioned by his fellow contestants on the reality show, including Culture Club frontman Boy George and ITV broadcaster Charlene White, following his arrival in the Australian jungle.
