Nadine Dorries: 'More people vote in I'm A Celebrity than in the general election'

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:

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.

– Nadine Dorries MP
