Lembit Opik: 'Dorries entitled to go into jungle'

Former Lib Dem MP and 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here' contestant Lembit Opik has backed a Tory MP's decision to appear on the show.

He said he thought the Mid-Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries was "completely entitled to go into the jungle".

She has been suspended by the Conservative Party over her decision to appear on the show.

Mr Opik said the Conservative leadership was "out of touch with the zeitgeist of the nation".
