Nadine Dorries has defended her appearance on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, after arriving back in the UK.
Speaking to reporters at Heathrow Airport, she said:
I've had three sitting days away from Parliament. The rest has been over half-term.
There are still MPs who have been away for two weeks and still haven't returned. I've had three sitting days away. I think that is an important thing to remember.
When asked about the reaction of some of her constituents in Mid Bedfordshire, she replied: "What they are angry about is what they have read in the newspapers, which is not the truth."
