Age: 55

Image: Feisty, outspoken MP. Thorn in the side of Prime Minister David Cameron.

Best known for: Calling David Cameron and George Osborne "posh boys who don't know the price of milk". Being suspended as a Tory MP by the Conservative Party for leaving Westminster and flying to Australia for the show

Career high: Getting elected in 2005

Love Life: Dating

Jungle phobias: Rats and mice

Missing any special occasion in the jungle? She says she is missing local elections, a by-election and the Tatler ball. She'll miss Mr Osborne's mini-budget and a crucial vote on the EU budget.

What she will miss most? Her three daughters, followed by her dog.

Words of wisdom: "Westminster is a jungle. Game playing, tactics, strategies. In Westminster you achieve everything by vote. This is the same. The parallels are huge."
