MP Nadine Dorries to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity...'

Tuesday November 6, 2012

Conservative backbencher Nadine Dorries will be breaking records as she becomes the first ever serving MP to appear on a reality TV show.

The 55-year-old, who represents Mid Bedfordshire in parliament, will be questioned by senior MP's about her appearance on Sunday's show, as it means she will miss an EU budget vote as well as a vote on Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne's mini budget.

Former Tory MP Louise Mensch, who gave up her Corby seat in August to live with her husband in America, wrote: "Nothing sadder than a politician, or ex-politician, on any of those shows."


"Just imagining the scene in the whips' office if I said I wanted to skip Parliament for weeks to go on a celebrity TV show."
