Nadine Dorries' daughters defend their mum's decision to take part in I'm a Celebrity...

The daughters of Mid Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries have defended her decision to take part in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

Jennifer told ITV Anglia: "Although she might be missing the odd vote while she's there, I think the greater good that she's going for here is that she's reaching a lot more people."

Cassie said: "More people voted for her to do the eating challenge than the PCC elections."

She added: "If they see her and like her and understand that she's a normal person, the next time they see her on the screen when she's talking about her opinions, her policies, they're going to say who's that, i know her, and then they'll listen to her."
