Tory MP Nadine Dorries became the first person to be evicted from I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! after 12 days in the jungle. Nadine, who was suspended from the party for going on the ITV show, was voted out by the public and was hugged by fellow camp members. Learning of her eviction, she told hosts Ant and Dec she had had a "fascinating experience". She said: "I actually came here self-important for a few days but I'm not now."When asked by presenters Ant and Dec if she felt she had achieved her aim in raising awareness of issues, she said: "I don't know what people have seen but I have had some fascinating conversations in there. It's been a fascinating experience."

She predicted David Haye would win with Helen Flanagan and Eric Bristow in the final three, and said she had guessed she would be the first to leave.She said: "I'm not disappointed at being the first, especially when you're starving. I kind of expected it actually. I don't think the public actually understand how hard and how difficult it is down there. The effect it has on your body when you're down there with three teaspoons of rice a day is hard, hard, hard."She was suspended as a Tory MP after flying to the jungle without getting permission from David Cameron or informing senior party leaders.Before going on I'm A Celebrity, she said: "It can't be that hard" and then went on to fail three challenges. Asked if she regretted those words, she replied: "There's like this massive adrenaline rush and your brain's screaming No and you have to overcome it but sometimes I can't."Nadine was put up for eviction after participating in an immunity challenge which was finally won by contestant Ashley Roberts. The former Pussycat Dolls star earned immunity from being booted out of the jungle camp by watching rats mating on her bed, she has revealed.She and the other stars had to share their beds with a bunch of unsavoury creatures for a challenge which guaranteed the winner safety from elimination.

Ashley clocked up 155 minutes in her bed, but she was narrowly beaten by campmate Rosemary Shrager endured one minute more after falling asleep while soldier crabs roamed her bed. But when the scores were added to previous "Bush Buddy" challenges, Ashley was declared the winner.Eric Bristow, Nadine, Colin Baker, Charlie Brooks and Helen Flanagan were left to face the public vote, while the other stars were given immunity. Viewers also saw Hugo Taylor complete his first Bushtucker Trial which saw him face his fear of confined spaces. The Made In Chelsea star had to collect stars from sewer pipes which were infested with critters and pythons. But Hugo conquered his demons to win nine meals for the camp.
