Dorries 'always intended' to donate salary says daughter

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.
