The new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! begins tonight in typically dramatic fashion as the two teams race each other across a snake-infested island in a bid to win one last night of luxury.

Among the celebrities taking part is Conservative Nadine Dorries, who is the first sitting Westminster Member of Parliament to participate in a reality television show since George Galloway's appearance in Celebrity Big Brother in 2006.
