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!
I find it quite disappointing now, that now the spotlight came onto this, that he has chosen, and particularly after all the support I gave him during his own particular troubles recently, that he's tried to be clever with words and say that he didn't give me permission for the show.
No, he didn't give me permission for the show but he did give me the permission to have the month away.
