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!

No, he didn't give me permission for the show but he did give me the permission to have the month away.
