I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here hosts Ant and Dec have told Daybreak that former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan "has turned a bit of a corner."
Ant said: "We never thought she was going to win an actual task but she went from not attempting anything to winning twelve meals."
The former Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell has hit back at claims from Nadine Dorries' daughters that he agreed to give the MP a month off so she could appear on the ITV show I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!
Dorries' daughter told ITV1's Daybreak: "She did ask for the month off, she did, she requested it from the Chief Whip at the time, that she's going to go away from a month, that it will be controversial, and he said that's fine."
However Mr Mitchell's office told the Huffington Post that he "was neither asked nor did he agree to Nadine Dorries going off to Australia for a month to take part in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!"
The daughters of I'm A Celebrity MP Nadine Dorries have told Daybreak that they were "hurt by the lies" surrounding their mother going into the jungle.
Jennifer and Cassie Dorries said: "Our mum has been an MP for a while, so we're used to a little bit of flack but when people are getting upset at things that aren't true, then that's upsetting."
Suspended Tory MP Nadine Dorries got her teeth into life in the jungle by chomping on a camel's toe and an ostrich's anus in her latest stomach-churning challenge on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.
The politician was retching at one stage as she tried to swallow a rotten egg after viewers made her face a second bushtucker trial.
But Dorries, who caused a furore last week when it emerged she heading to the Australian jungle during parliamentary time, managed to win her challenge - and food for her camp - by eating more nasties than rival Helen Flanagan.
Afterwards Dorries admitted on the ITV1 show: "I feel sick as a dog."
The 55-year-old MP managed to gobble down: a baked spider, an ostrich's anus, a lamb's testicle and a camel's toe.
But she failed to consume a fermented duck's egg.
The daughter of the MP Nadine Dorries has spoken about the controversy over her mother taking part in the ITV1 reality TV show I'm A Celebrity.
Jen Dorries has told Bedford Times & Citizen:
Mum had always intended to donate the wage she has been paid to charity, for the time she has missed parliament sitting whilst being in Australia.
She was obviously unable to reveal this before the show as she was contractually bound to silence about taking part.
It is for mum to make the final decision as to which charities benefit from this but it is certainly something she will do on her return from the jungle.
Mid Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries has been faced with eating with what she described as "the vilest meat on the planet."
The public voted for Dorries, along with former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, to take part in I'm A Celebrity's first food-based Bushtucker Trial of the series.
The full trial airs tonight at 9pm on ITV1 and you can watch a preview on the I'm A Celebrity site.
Nadine Dorries has been selected by the public to take part in a second 'Bushtucker trial' on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
She will go head to head with actress Helen Flanagan again.
MP Dadine Dorries has failed her first 'Bushtucker trial' on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Ms Dorries was buried in a wooden coffin-like structure, whilst more than 3000 insects were inserted on top of her.
She lasted just over four minutes, whilst Helen Flanagan lasted less than a minute underground. Although she stayed longer than Helen, both teams lost as they failed to complete the task, which stipulated they must remain covered in bugs for ten minutes.
Nadine Dorries said she was "absolutely determined" to win her first 'Bushtucker trial' on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of here. She said she was not at all surprised she was selected by the public:
I fully expected this, because, I am an MP and MPs are conduit for public anger
