She hasn’t been very popular with the public so far – after being voted to carry out several bushtucker trials already – but Tory MP Nadine Dorries hasn’t let it knock her confidence. The 55-year-old I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contestant opened up to fellow trial regular Helen Flanagan about her cosmetic treatment, admitting that she has dabbled in Botox and plastic surgery.
‘I haven’t had a lot’, Dorries told the ex-Coronation Street actress, ‘I’ve never said [to surgeons] make me look younger, I’ve always said stop me looking older.’ She also advised the younger contestants to avoid cosmetic surgery until they were at least in their thirties, saying it wasn’t a good idea to be meddling with nature before then. When asked about Nadine’s beauty regime, a spokesperson for the MP admitted to knowing little about it, saying ‘This is news to me’.
Although Nadine has escaped the upcoming task, her decision to give Helen a pep talk before she headed off into the jungle for her third consecutive trial didn’t go down too well with campmate Brian Connelly, who found the politicians encouragement to be insincere. The comedian told the Bush Telegraph that ‘It was a bit condescending. Don’t give her that pressure. Someone is trying to get in there because they thing ‘oh this is when the nation will watch because they all want to know who gives a pep talk to Helen. I would hate that.’
