STEVE CANAVAN: Pronged attack could have left me a goner  

Have your say

I can’t wait for the new series of I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here to start this weekend. But I have to say I don’t agree with this year’s line-up.

Or should I say I don’t agree with one particular contestant. MP Nadine Dorries has caused a bit of a stir in Parliament and in her local constituency because apparently she didn’t tell a soul of her plans and just jetted off to Australia to become a contestant.

Quite honestly, I think it’s disgusting. I’m not trying to be judgmental (well actually I guess I am) but I hate the fact lines are being blurred between politics and the world of celebrity.

Favouring a reality TV appearance over serving constituents demonstrates all that is wrong with this country.
