The ex-rugby player and widely disparaged Tory MP were both included in the Final Four for Saturday night’s (26 November) semi-final episode, competing to be voted through into the final.
Early in the episode, Tindall observed that Hancock had been quietly positioning his clothing and items so that his phone number was always facing the camera.
“Matt’s making sure his t-shirt and his phone numbers are on display at all times. Matt clearly wants to win,” he claimed.
“Have you noticed someone’s been advertising themselves? Matt’s been putting all his stuff with ‘Matt’ and the phone number pointing at cameras,” he pointed out to contestant Seann Walsh.
“Once a politician, always a politician. Always polling for votes,” he joked in the Bush Telegraph.
Back at the camp, however, he re-arranged Hancock’s jacket to obscure the voting phone number.
“I’m taking great pleasure in turning it around every time he leaves camp,” Tindall said.
At the end of Saturday’s episode, it was ultimately revealed that Tindall would be leaving the camp, with Hancock, Jill Scott and Owen Warner the only three contestants remaining.
The final airs at 9pm on ITV1 on Sunday, and will also be available to stream on ITVX.
