Scottish Labour MP Kezia Dugdale reveals she knows her decision to go on this year’s I’m A Celebrity is a controversial one and she predicts some of her colleagues will be “shocked and angry.”

But the 36-year-old politician thinks the chance to talk more about her party’s values and take part on such a popular programme was too big an opportunity to turn down.

“I think people’s overriding emotion will be, first and foremost, of shock. I think there will be a few people angry,” she admits. “ They will be angry because they will say I should be doing my day job and I am going to be away. I understand that anger.”

Iain Lee
Late night talkRADIO presenter Iain Lee insists he definitely doesn’t mind the basic rations in camp because he’s hoping to lose a couple of stone whilst taking part on this year’s I’m A Celebrity.

The former host of the 11 O’Clock Show also thinks it’s the perfect opportunity to do something really funny and ridiculous for his two children, aged seven and five.

“I’ve been asked before but the timing has never been right,” he explains. “But this time, I decided it was.

"I am 44, my kids are seven and five and they haven’t really seen me on the telly.

"They don’t know what Daddy used to do. They will find it funny watching me.”
