Nadine Dorries has again stressed that she was trying to "change perceptions" when she went on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.
The mid-Bedfordshire MP told Sunday Politics that she was "doing something different" with her holiday by going on the ITV show.
Ms Dorries had the Conservative parliamentary whip removed after she decided to spend time filming in the Australian jungle.
