The Mid Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries has been criticised for leaving her day job to take part in the ITV reality show I'm a Celebrity. She's released a statement through the Conservative Home website explaining that she intends to donate her MP's salary to children's charities in her constituency. She also says she did tell the Whips office she'd be away for a month.
She's also sparked anger in her Mid Bedfordshire constituency for missing a Remembrance Sunday ceremony. You can read more about that here
