Tory MP proves to be up to unsavoury challenges on I’m A Celebrity

Suspended Tory MP Nadine Dorries got her teeth into life in the jungle by chomping on a camel’s toe and an ostrich’s anus in her latest stomach-churning challenge on the television reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The politician was retching at one stage as she tried to swallow a rotten egg after viewers made her face a second bushtucker trial.

But Dorries, who caused a 
furore last week when it emerged she was heading to the Australian jungle during parliamentary time, managed to win her challenge – and food for her camp – by eating more nasties than rival Helen Flanagan.

Afterwards Dorries admitted on the ITV1 show: “I feel sick as a dog.”

The 55-year-old MP managed to gobble down four out of five unpleasant snacks, hours after she freaked out when buried beneath thousands of bugs.

First Dorries had to knock back a baked spider before moving on to the camel toe, which she found tough to chew but still completed. She also managed to get through an ostrich’s anus and swallowed a lamb’s testicle but failed to eat a fermented duck egg.

Coronation Street star Flanagan finished three of the courses, which meant she failed to win meals for her team.

Afterwards Dorries said: “I actually feel a bit sick now, but I’m really glad I did it. When I sat down and saw that massive spider with hairy legs on the plate I didn’t think I was going to be able to do it.

“The thought went through my head, ‘oh, we’re not going to eat any tonight’, but I thought to myself, ‘yeah, you can do this’.”
