The MP – who has announced he will quit parliament at the next election – cut a casual figure in a white shirt and matching T-shirt.

He also sported a pair of blue jeans while Gina opted for a white blouse and a pair of black leather trousers.

A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette looked sensational in a black dress with a sequinned print and plunging neckline. 

The night out comes after Matt announced on Wednesday he will quit Parliament at the next general election to explore ‘new ways to communicate’ with the public.

The MP for West Suffolk, wrote to the Prime Minister to reveal he will not stand as a Tory candidate when the country next goes to the polls.

The former health secretary also broke the news in a social media video on TikTok.

Matt said it would now not be ‘necessary’ for him to receive the Tory whip back.

He was suspended from the Conservative parliamentary party last month when it was confirmed he had signed up to the reality TV programme.

This meant he was absent from the House of Commons for weeks.

Despite initially being voted to take part in several Bushtucker Trials, the MP won over the public and ended up finishing in third place. 

Reflecting on his jungle stint, Matt discussed his time in camp with comedian Seann Walsh.

He said: ‘I formed an extraordinary bond with Seann in a short period of time and then it took a few days to work through and develop relationships with the rest of the camp mates.

‘Some of them, I could tell, didn’t take to me straightaway but it softened over time. Being in the jungle also gives you lots of time to think about what really matters. 

‘I thought about how much I care for the people I really love’.
