MP Ben Bradshaw says he was shouted at by notorious reality TV star Katie Hopkins as he spoke to striking junior doctors.
The Labour MP for Exeter tweeted his 37,000 followers to tell them of the encounter with the controversial columnist, and received a number of replies in support.
Katie is no stranger to hospitals in recent months. In February the Devon business woman underwent brain surgery to treat her epilepsy, which has "plagued" her since she was 19.
Surgeons removed part of her brain in an operation to prolong her life expectancy, and she underwent a further operation to remove an infected scalp bone in March.

As well as receiving support against Katie Hopkins, Mr Bradshaw was also praised by the doctors he supported.
Katie Hopkins, who is from Exeter, is yet to respond to the comments.
She has previously branded junior doctors 'greedy'.
A group of travellers have occupied part of a hospital car park in Exeter.
Around 15 caravans have been placed at the Digby Park and Ride site, which serves staff and visitors for the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
Buses are running as normal, and extra spaces have been made available at a nearby Tescos.
“We are working with Devon County Council and Devon and Cornwall Police to resolve this as quickly as possible. At this time, the Park and Ride busses are running as normal, so there should be minimal disruption to Park and Ride services. However we have put in place overflow car parking arrangements at Digby Tesco, Wonford Sports Centre and Lidl. RD&E staff are on site at the car park to support patients and visitors if required.
“Patients and visitors are advised to allow extra time to attend outpatient appointments due to an extra stop on the bus route and to consider using alternative transport options to come to the RD&E.
The Trust is very grateful to Tesco, Wonford Sports Centre, Lidl and Dartline for their assistance.
“We will continue to update the public as and when the situation changes.”
