But former Health Secretary Matt ruffled the feathers of his fellow campmates as he headed on the reward trip – with comedian Seann Walsh claiming that he was ‘having a holiday in here’.
And soap star Owen Warner was also feeling down, as he admitted to being ‘devastated’ not to be joining in on the beach trip.
Leading the pack: Matt Hancock , Sue Cleaver and Jill Scott were all rewarded with a trip to the beach during Thursday evening’s episode of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here
The winning trio were rewarded with the trip after Jill, Mike Tindall, and Owen Warner were chosen by their campmates to take on the Scareground challenge which saw them write their co-stars names on balls, before putting them into a tombola.
Three winners were picked out and Matt, Sue and Jill were able to escape the conditions of camp for the day.

Tucking in: While their campmates were green with jealousy, Matt, Sue and Jill tucked into a tasty barbecue on the beach
And as they were informed of the reward during the episode, Matt told Jill: ‘You really, really deserve this after what you went through. And the fact that you’re so hungry.’
But Owen was less than impressed that he wouldn’t be heading on the trip, taking to the Bush Telegraph to explain that he was finding it difficult to be happy for his campmates.
‘I want to say that I’m not gutted, I want to be as happy as I can be for them, but I am “devo’d”. Sue didn’t really fancy it, Matt’s been here five minutes, Jill… Jill is a sweet, sweet soul, she’s an angel, I’m so happy for Jill,’ he shared.

While Seann jested that Matt had it easy in the jungle, telling the group: ‘Matt is having an absolute holiday here. Sat in that chair, has a sleep in that bed, then goes to the beach for the day.’
Boy George added: ‘Can I just cut you off there, he still has to be Matt Hancock.’
While their campmates were green with jealousy, Matt, Sue and Jill tucked into a tasty barbecue on the beach – complete with sausages, king prawns and potato salad.
It was the latest of Matt’s victories, as he has been ruling the celebrities as camp leader – meaning he hasn’t needed to take part in any chores around the jungle.

Elsewhere in the episode, Charlene White dared to raise the dire sleeping arrangements.
The Loose Women star, 42, said she’s be happy to sleep in a hammock so that everyone can alternate between a flat bed for a good night’s sleep.
‘I’ve said that I’m fine sleeping in a hammock. We’ve all got to alternate. Even if I sleep in there [the RV] there will still be two people left in a hammock. We’ve all got to alternate so no-one spends seven days sleeping in it,’ she began.
‘I keep telling everyone that I’ll sleep in the hammock!’ Charlene White said she’s ‘fine’ to give up a bed on I’m a Celebrity on Thursday… after Mike Tindall said she’s ‘f***ing annoying him’ for refusing to sleep in the RV
She added in the Bush Telegraph: ‘I keep telling everyone that I’ll sleep in the hammock, which I’m really happy to do. I think maybe I need to be more forceful about it tonight.’
Campmate Owen, 23, said to Charlene: ‘I’ve got more chance of having a rest in it than you.’
Owen added that he refuses to let Charlene sleep in a hammock as she’s like his ‘mum’ in the jungle.

Annoyed: It comes after Mike fumed at Charlene after she refused to sleep in the RV during I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! on Wednesday
‘I feel like saying, go on, sleep in the hammock and I bet you, in the middle of the night, she’s going to sneak up to the RV and get in that bed,’ he said to camera.
‘Charlene’s like my mum in here, it’s like me putting my mum in a hammock whilst I’ve got a bed, so we’ll see.’
Owen had volunteered to sleep in a hammock so Seann Walsh, 36, could sleep on a flat bed.
Seann said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Owen, god bless that man, he gave up his bed. I needed that sleep. I really, really, really, really, really, really needed that sleep.’
Later in the episode footballer Jill Scott had to be attended to by a medic after a cockroach got stuck in her ear.
‘Come to the jungle they said, it would be fun they said’: I’m a Celeb’s Jill Scott was left horrified on Thursday’s show when she got a cockroach stuck in her ear during a trial
The sports star, 35, had the creepy-crawly stuck in her ear after competing in the Scareground trial, with the show’s super fans instantly comparing it to the iconic moment 2011 contestant Fatima Whitbread got a bug stuck up her nose.
‘I’ve just got a cockroach stuck in my ear,’ Jill said, after competing for the beach day prize draw in the tough challenge.
While the final moments saw Ant and Dec break the news to Boy George and Charlene that they would be facing the next Bushtucker trial, Watery Grave!.
