Nadine Dorries was warned she must rebuild bridges with her constituents and fellow MPs following her appearance on TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

At a meeting with Conservative Chief Whip Sir George Young yesterday, the MP was told she would not be restored to the ranks of the Parliamentary Conservative Party unless she could prove she had managed to mend fences.

Ms Dorries had the Tory whip suspended after flying
to Australia while parliament was sitting to take part in the programme.

A spokesman for Sir George said: “The whip has not been restored and nor will it be until she proves that she can rebuild bridges with her constituents, her association and her parliamentary colleagues.”
