Nadine Dorries has been voted off I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! but Martha Fairlie reports that her greatest challenge could still await her when she returns home.
Nadine Dorries has taken back control of her Twitter account now she has left I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! Her daughter Jennie looked after the account while she was in the jungle.
Hi everyone, I've wrenched my Twitter account back from the hands of my daughter. So touched by all the tweets I can see - thank you xxx
Nadine Dorries has told Daybreak that the former Tory Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell gave her permission to take a month off in November, although she admitted she had not mentioned it was to take part in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
Nadine Dorries told Daybreak that an office had been set up in her hotel room and she's "already been back at work" following her exit from the ITV1 show I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
She argued: "I worked right until the second I left and I worked right through the summer recess, I actually only had four days away during the summer when other MPs were abroad for four or five weeks at a time, I worked all the way through the summer.
"I did my surgeries right up until the minute I left and only one person has booked in for next month's surgery. So it's quite interesting some of the flak that's been thrown at me, just, I'm afraid isn't true."
Nadine Dorries hit out at the former chief whip Andrew Mitchell, who resigned last month, during her interview with ITV1's Daybreak. She told the show that he agreed she could take the time off, although did not know it was to appear on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
I find it quite disappointing now, that now the spotlight came onto this, that he has chosen, and particularly after all the support I gave him during his own particular troubles recently, that he's tried to be clever with words and say that he didn't give me permission for the show.
No, he didn't give me permission for the show but he did give me the permission to have the month away.
Nadine Dorries told ITV1's Daybreak said it "was an interesting turn" that she had been suspended from the Conservative Party following her decision to appear on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
She added: "There are lots of MPs who take lots of weeks off during parliamentary time and their whip isn't suspended.
"So, I think what happened was that maybe the powers that be in my party thought I was going to use my time in the jungle to talk about them and not the about the issues that concerned me and interested me and I think it was a kind of cautionary measure."
Nadine Dorries said she thought that the public "don't realise how hardcore the jungle is" after being voted out of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Speaking after her eviction, she said:
– Nadine Dorries MP
12 million people watch this show.
It really is important that MPs realise that you need to go where people go and understand why they go there.
We MPs complain all the time that more people vote on X Factor and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here than the general election.
MPs need to go where people go and understand why.
That's one thing that I've taken from it.
More people vote in I'm A Celebrity than vote in the general election.
Andrew Gwynne, Labour's shadow health minister, has tweeted that Nadine Dorries will have to meet with the Tory chief whip sooner than she initially planned, after her eviction from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Jennie Dorries, who currently has control of Nadine Dorries MP's Twitter account, has tweeted that she thought her mum did well on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
