I missed this last night. In every sense of the word. It doesn't matter what I was doing instead (eating), the point is I missed Nadine Dorries being the first contestant voted out of the jungle after finding herself in the bottom two alongside Eric the darts player. Now, the question is, will she hang around the swish hotel until the wrap party on December 1st, or will she fly straight home to attend her abandoned political duties? Well, we already have the answer to that: She's staying. If you're one of her constituents (we have quite a few readers from England by all accounts), don't worry, according to the Daily Mail "she's set up office in her plush hotel room."
After being ousted, she said to Ant and Dec: "I actually came here self-important for a few days but I'm not now. I needed that missile and I think all MPs need that. I came from a council estate (she had to get that in) and never thought I was like that but I was. I'm not now... I don't know what people have seen but I have had some fascinating conversations in there. It's been a fascinating experience… I think it is important that MPs realise that you need to go where the public go. More people vote on X Factor and I'm A Celebrity than they do in the general elections. MPs need to go where people vote."
And they voted you off in their droves. On that matter, she added: "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."
It's so hard, in fact, that Hugo forced himself to garner 8 stars during his Savage Sewer bush tucker trial, despite him announcing beforehand: "I can't even go on the Tube in London, I hate it so much." One can assume he was referencing his claustrophobia, not his innate aversion to all public transport.
Helen Flanagan being meltdown free wasn't going to last forever either. Eric the darts player decided to see to that by announcing her skin was sh*t. When their camp mates chimed in in agreement, Helen started bawling - as most people would when your biggest body hang up is pointed out on national TV.
As for Brian Conley, he's been discharged from hospital and is now recuperating at a private residence in Australia after "quitting" ten days into his jungle stay. An ITV "insider" talking with The Sun said: "We have to ask some serious questions about the decision to approve Brian as a contestant. Crucial warning signs may have been missed indicating he was not as well-equipped to deal with the situation as some people thought."
And by "some people" said insider means the person in charge of psychological testing - that being Dr Sandra Scott off Big Brother.
While Brian gets nursed back to health by his family, his camp mates are carrying on regardless, with the "insider" adding: "I am sure the celebrities all wish Brian well - but they have not been talking about him, or asking how he is in the Bush Telegraph."
I'm a Celebrity… continues tonight on 3e and UTV from 8.30pm.
