A lot of meeja people are getting their kickers in a twist this morning about Tory MP Nadine Dorries’ participation in the upcoming unreality television show I’m a Z list celebrity, get me out of here.
They are complaining that while Ms Dorries is out of the Doris Day, eating Wichetty Grubs for breakfast the self righteous brigade are bothered about her constituents being deprived of the services of their MP for four weeks. Like anyone would notice. And anyway it is not going to be four weeks, an MP is bound to be the first one thrown out.
With Nadine and regular hosts Ant and Dec will be a motley crew including
former racehorse trainer horsefaced East Enders actress Charlie Brooks, former heavyweight boxer David Hay who is a real celebrity and so must be doing it for a laugh, a bloke who used to be Doctor Who in the 1980s and hasn’t worked since, The Rock (of Gibraltar?), Darts champion Eric Bristow (well he’ll be able to spear a few grubs for lunch) and Coronation Street actress helen (nice tits) Flanagan.
What more reason do you need to buy a couple of good books?
