Her decision to enter the jungle while still serving as MP for Mid Bedfordshire has inevitably attracted critics.

Ex-Tory MP and media figure Louise Mensch has weighed in ("Nothing sadder than a politician, or ex-politician, on any of those shows"), while her local party association is said to be considering her future.

Dorries has argued that the House of Commons is currently on half-term, adding: "Rather than MPs talking to other MPs about issues in Parliament, I think MPs should be going to where people go."

Do you think sitting MPs should be allowed to use their "half-term" to compete in the jungle or other reality TV shows? Or should they have to give up their political roles to do so? Vote in our poll and use the comment box below to let us know your thoughts.
