The Conservative MP Penny Mordaunt has said she will be donating her fee for appearing on the ITV reality swimming show Splash! to a charity in her constituency.

The politician represents Portmouth North. She said "Not only is Splash! a great personal development experience but it also seemed like the perfect way to fund raise for a charity Iā€™m very passionate about ā€“ the Hilsea Lido in Portsmouth which is being renovated by the community.

"I will be donating my fee for the programme to assist with the renovations. I have the elegance and drive of a paving slab, but my navy training has certainly given me the guts to take on the challenge head on.ā€

The MP will be appearing on the show alongside singer and musician Paul Young, model Danielle Lloyd, comedian Patrick Monahan and TOWIE star Dan Osbourne.
