Conservative MP Penny Mordaunt has said she will be donating her fee for appearing on Splash! to a charity in her constituency.
She said "Not only is Splash! a great personal development experience but it also seemed like the perfect way to fund raise for a charity I’m very passionate about – the Hilsea Lido in Portsmouth which is being renovated by the community.
"I will be donating my fee for the programme to assist with the renovations. I have the elegance and drive of a paving slab, but my navy training has certainly given me the guts to take on the challenge head on.”
The MP will be appearing on the show alongside singer and musician Paul Young, model Danielle Lloyd, comedian Patrick Monahan and TOWIE star Dan Osbourne.
