Nadine Dorries - Nadine Dorries' constituents disapprove of I'm A Celebrity appearance

Nadine Dorries' constituents disapprove of her appearance on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The Conservative MP failed to impress her voters in Mid Bedfordshire, England, by taking a month off duty to star in the ITV show so much that they gave her a low rating in a private poll carried out by former deputy chairman of the party Lord Ashcroft.

The results of the survey were released after Nadine, 55, was the first contestant to be evicted from the show yesterday (21.11.12) and showed more than half of those who voted strongly disapproved of her actions and scored her an average of 2.82 out of 10.

She has argued that her aim was to communicate more directly with the younger voters who tune in, however, Lord Ashcroft says her attempts to do so have not been successful.

He said: ''Nadine said she was doing the show for the chance to talk to a huge audience about important questions, at a time when nobody pays attention to politicians.

''Unfortunately, her constituents are not buying this. Nor are they impressed that her parliamentary salary for the time she is away will go to local charities.''

Speaking to the shows hosts Ant and Dec after leaving the jungle Nadine instead encouraged other MPs to join the next series, saying: ''We MPs and anyone in public life need to go where people are. More people vote on 'The X Factor' and 'I'm A Celebrity...' than in the general election.

''I was slightly self-important in the first few days, and I've come from a council estate so never thought I was like that but I was.

''I think there should be an MP in there every year.''
