I'm A Celebrity 2012 results: Who was eliminated? Nadine Dorries out

Nadine Dorries - I'm A Celebrity 2012Shamed Conservative MP Nadine Dorries has become the first contestant to be eliminated from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2012.

The 55-year-old was in the bottom two with darts player Eric Bristow in the first public eviction vote, from which Ashley Roberts, Hugo Taylor, Rosemary Shrager, Limahl and Linda Robson were immune.

In her interview with presenters Ant and Dec, Nadine said she's alright with being the first to leave the jungle. "When you've been starving for two weeks, no-one's gonna be disappointed to be out. I kinda expected it," she commented.

"I don't think the public understand how tough it is down there, the effect it has on your body when you haven't eaten for days is hard."

Nadine - who has been suspended from the Tory party over the show - was unsure about whether she'd achieved her aim of reaching out to the public.

"I don't know what you've put in the edit so I don't know what people have seen, but it has been a fascinating experience," she said.

"What I know is that twelve million people watch this programme, and I think it's important that MPs realise you need to go where people go.

"We MPs complain all the time that more people vote on The X Factor finals and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here than general elections."

Nadine admitted that she had been 'slightly self important' over the first few days, saying: "I come from a council estate, I would never have thought I was like that, but I was. I'm not now."

She also talked about her reaction to the Bushtucker Trials. "You sit at home and you think, 'how hard can that be.' When someone puts a great big spider in front of you, everything in your body is going, don't eat it.

"As soon as your brain says 'pick it up and eat it', your gag reflex kicks in."

Nadine ended by predicting that Eric, David Haye and Helen Flanagan will make the final three.

I'm A Celebrity continues tomorrow at 8.30pm on ITV, when the second elimination will take place.
