Nadine Dorries in serious trouble with the Standards Commissioner for failing to declare her commission for appearing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
- Mad Nads set up firm Averbrook Limited to handle media fees
- Dorries claims that money paid to a company — rather than her directly — doesn’t need to be declared
- Commissioner still finds her in “serious breach of the code of conduct”

It’s likely Dorries reasoned the political hit from breaching the rules and being forced to apologise — was less than that she would incur disclosing the sizeable fee she received for abandoning her constituents.
The Commissioner is recommending a rules change.
