REALITY TV star known as White Dee has clashed with Fareham MP Mark Hoban at the Conservative party conference.

White Dee, whose real name is Deirdre Kelly and who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and Benefits Street, disagreed with Mr Hoban over the rise in benefits sanctions.

Ms Dee said the system whereby jobseeker’s allowances are stopped for up to 13 weeks if claimants do not meet all the rules was too harsh.

Mr Hoban said it was an important part of the system, in the debate on Monday.
