Robert Webb has revealed that Tory MP Nadine Dorries is his woman of the year.
When asked about his favourite female, the comedian said: "That would have to be my wife, but in the public eye, Nadine Dorries. She's definitely my woman of the year. It's been very entertaining watching her do the things she does."
Nadine is in talks to make a return to the Conservative whip following her stay in the Australian jungle as a contestant in ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.
The MP ate a lamb testicle and ostrich anus during the show's bushtucker trials.
Speaking at the 22nd Sky Women in Film and Television awards, Robert pondered the significance of celebrating women working within the media.
He said: "It's very important, nearly as important as honouring men. No, even more important - equally important."
The star is best known for playing Jeremy Usborne in Channel 4 comedy Peep Show, alongside his friend and comedy partner David Mitchell. The duo were attending the event to present their Peep Show co-star Olivia Colman with the MAC best performance award.
David arrived at the event with his new wife, broadcaster and writer Victoria Coren. Robert was best man at the wedding in north London last month, just as David had been for his.
Next year the pair will film comedy drama Our Men, written by James Wood, about the British embassy team in fictional Tazbekistan.
