Nadine Dorries on jungle celebrity show reaction

Help

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.
