Nadine Dorries said she was "looking forward to receiving the Tory whip back" after it was removed when she missed Parliamentary sittings to go on I'm A Celebrity in Australia.
When asked about the fee she received on the ITV show - the Mid-Bedfordshire MP would not give a figure but said it would be on her register of interests.
She said it was unlikely she would appear on another realty TV show, as this was her "once in a lifetime" chance. She told Andrew Neil: "Just about every person knows who I am."
The MP also spoke about reports of her possible defection to UKIP, but said she expected to be the Tory candidate in her current seat at the 2015 general election.
