Nadine Dorries leaves the jungle - did she get her politics across?

Nadine Dorries yesterday (November 21) became the first of this year's I'm a Celebrity contestants to be voted off the show.

Her presence on the reality TV series was controversial. The Tory MP was suspended by the Conservative Party for not informing the chief whip of her plans and a whopping 72% of you thought that sitting MPs should be banned from the show.

Dorries argued, like George 'Would you like me to be the cat?' Galloway before her, that going on reality TV would bring politics to the masses.

"Rather than MPs talking to other MPs about issues in parliament, I think MPs should be going to where people go," she said.

"There are certain causes that I'm interested in, one of which is [reducing the abortion time limit from 24 weeks to] 20 weeks.

"That is why I'm doing the show. I will be talking about this issue around the campfire. I hope there will be some lively, heated debates."
