Nadine Dorries will buried with live insects on I’m A Celebrity, it emerged late last night. The Mid Bedfordshire MP, who was suspended from the Tories after she abandoned her constituents for the reality show, will go head-to-head with soap star Helen Flanaghan in the ‘bug burial’ trial.
With footage due to be aired on tonight’s show, the two women will clamber inside ‘coffins’, after which they’ll be forced to spend ten minutes in the company of an insect-based cross section of Australian wildlife.
The prospect of seeing ‘Mad Nads’ humiliated in this manner is made that bit sweeter given that she was selected for the challenge by a phone poll of viewers. The incalcitrant MP may yet find the electoral politics of I’m A Celebrity more challenging than that of her 15,152 majority safe seat.
Vive la démocratie!
