Teddy Soares had no remorse for his brawl with Matt Hancock on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The event occurred while taking part in one of the most demanding shows on television today, in which celebrities are put through the most extreme army trials under the leadership of Special Forces personnel.
According to reports, the Love Island star got into a fight with the former Health Secretary over an assignment, leaving the politician with two fractured ribs.
The 28-year-old said that he ‘took out a lot of fury on Matt’ during their battle, which will be shown on Channel 4 on Sunday.
‘It felt amazing. I couldn’t bring myself to go back to the UK without having kicked his a**. I didn’t feel guilty.
‘When we got home, he messaged me and said, “You really did do a number on me”,’ he told the Mirror.
Hancock previously stated that he knew he was injured but decided to stay quiet: ‘I was determined to keep going so I just kept my mouth shut so I wasn’t medically discharged.’
In the forthcoming episode, Hancock will be compelled to strip down to his pants after being confronted about his romance with staffer Gina Coladangelo during the COVID-19 epidemic.
The duo kissed in government offices, prompting Hancock to quit from Boris Johnson’s cabinet in 2021 for violating social distance guidelines.
The father-of-three was married at the time, as was Gina, who also had three children.
Interrogator Debs will be seen shouting at the 45-year-old MP: ‘You’re not a good-looking guy, are you?
‘Pubes on your chest, moobs, so how did you do it, Matty, babe?’
Following Matt, who previously appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here – a move that drew much criticism despite his final third-place finish – he responded: ‘Well,’ Debs hits back.
She shouted: ‘What kind of a f****** arrogant, c***-sucking answer is that, you weasel-faced ****?”
Chris Oliver, a Celebrity SAS instructor, noted: ‘If that was for real, he’d be missing a few teeth by now.’
The umpire overseeing his interrogation observed: ‘That sort of attitude is not going to get him killed but it’ll get him a kicking.’
Hancock’s evasiveness was ‘very frustrating’ during shooting, according to chief instructor Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham.
He told the BBC last month: ‘He gave it 100%, he got stuck in. The only thing is, he’s a typical politician, won’t give a straight answer.
‘It took a while to dig into him, to get to the bottom of him and got quite annoying at times.
‘He got pushed through his paces and anytime he showed any attitude or any sort of fight back he really got pushed back; he got it given to him big style.’
Hancock’s eating habits reportedly irritated some of the other celebrity participants.
Along with the physical beastings and rigorous mental obstacles, the squad must live in a rudimentary camp in Thung Ui, North Vietnam’s forest. There are no frills, and food is rationed.
Hancock was allegedly not the finest team player when it came to dinnertime, according to his co-star Danielle Lloyd.
Shedding light on how each campmate would queue up and dish themselves up from a communal serving plate, the model and TV star said: ‘There were times when it came to the food when Matt would help himself to massive portions.
‘I was fuming!’
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins continues on Channel 4 at 9pm on Sunday.
