Former Health Minister Matt Hancock has been confirmed as one of the speakers at the ITT conference in Qatar in June.

Mr Hancock resigned from his ministerial role after it was disclosed he broke COVID lockdown rules to have an affair with his aide.

He later went on to appear on reality TV show I’m A Celebrity, causing him to lose the Conservative Party Whip – but earning him a reported £320,000.

The West Suffolk MP, who is standing down at the next election, earned a further £45,000 for an appearance on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins on Channel 4, according to Sky News.

It has since been disclosed that he is setting up his own TV company.

ITT said it was ‘delighted’ Mr Hancock will join the line-up of 20 speakers at the conference in Doha.

It added: “Matt Hancock is a British politician who served as Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General from 2015 to 2016., Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport from January to July 2018, and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care from 2018 to 2021.

“He held his position under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, managing the first 18 months of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Since working in Parliament, Matt has been working to introduce universal screening for dyslexia in all UK primary schools, alongside better teacher training and support for those with neurodiverse conditions.”
