Tory MP Nadine Dorries became the first person to be evicted from I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! after 12 days in the jungle.

Dorries, who was suspended from the party for going on the ITV show, was voted out by the public and was hugged by fellow camp members

Learning of her eviction, she told hosts Ant and Dec she had had a "fascinating experience".

She said: "I actually came here self-important for a few days but I'm not now."

When asked by presenters Ant and Dec if she felt she had achieved her aim in raising awareness of issues, she said: "I don't know what people have seen but I have had some fascinating conversations in there. It's been a fascinating experience."

She predicted David Haye would win with Helen Flanagan and Eric Bristow in the final three, and said she had guessed she would be the first to leave.

She said: "I'm not disappointed at being the first, especially when you're starving. I kind of expected it actually. I don't think the public actually understand how hard and how difficult it is down there. The effect it has on your body when you're down there with three teaspoons of rice a day is hard, hard, hard."

She was suspended as a Tory MP after flying to the jungle without getting permission from David Cameron or informing senior party leaders.

Before going on I'm A Celebrity, she said: "It can't be that hard" and then went on to fail three challenges. Asked if she regretted those words, she replied: "There's like this massive adrenaline rush and your brain's screaming No and you have to overcome it but sometimes I can't."

On eating lamb's testicle and ostrich anus, she said: "I would never have thought I would eat any of those things in a million years."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
