Niall Horan has proven he’s not exactly the biggest fan of Health Secretary Matt Hancock, sending some brutal shade his way.
He definitely says it how he sees it.
The Slow Hands hitmaker came for the politician on Twitter, writing: ‘I get the idea that Health secretary Matt Hancock thinks he’s a lot more intelligent than he actually is.
‘Always very smug and slippery,’ Niall added. ‘Excuse me but Matt you’ve had a major howler here and it’s about time you handed facts out instead of worrying about what the opposition thinks.’
Many fans of the singer, who recently took part in the Global Citizen One World: Together At Home concert, were thankful that he’s spoken out on the topic, with one writing: ‘King of using his platform to talk about important topic, I have to Stan even harder.’

Not long afterwards, Mr Hancock tweeted: ‘A great national effort reaching 126,064 #coronavirus tests yesterday – hugely proud of all those involved in ramping up testing.’
On a recent episode of the morning show, Holly was left concerned at the idea of her children going back to school, with UK officials expecting Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 to go back from 1 June.
A concerned Holly demanded to know how her children will be kept safe as they return to school and asked if her son would be doused with disinfectant as he walks through the door.
‘Firstly, he won’t be having to be sprayed with disinfectant,’ Mr Hancock replied. ‘That is absolutely not going to happen.
‘We wouldn’t be proposing this if we didn’t think it was safe. Children thankfully are rarely affected by this.
‘It is safe for the children, but they also do risk spreading the disease which is why we’ve limited this so much.’
Elsewhere, he added: ‘The reason we’ve said what we have is actually homeschooling and teleschooling for five and six-year-olds is much harder than for older kids and we want to make sure education is interrupted as little as possible.’
