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."
