MP Nadine tucks into camel's toe

Nadine Dorries won a bushtucker trial that involved eating a camel's toe

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 I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here.

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

But Nadine, 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 Nadine 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 during another task which saw her buried beneath thousands of bugs.

First Nadine had to knock back a baked spider before moving on to the camel's 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 Helen finished three of the courses, which meant she failed to win meals for her team.

Afterwards Nadine 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'."

Despite losing, Helen who played Corrie's Rosie Webster, said she was pleased with her performance which had given her a confidence boost.

"I've never been so proud of myself. I can't believe I ate those things. I'm on top of the world. I know I lost by one point. It's kind of boosted my confidence that I can do things. I feel really happy that I got what I got."

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
