The Liberal Democrats are trying to introduce a rule banning sitting MPs from appearing on reality TV shows.
They filed an Early Day Motion – dubbed the Bushtucker Bill – after Matt Hancock traveled to Australia for several weeks to perform on I’m A Celebrity and win a fee for his participation.
Helen Morgan told BBC Two’s Politics Live that MPs were not employees and that some existing employment laws did not apply to them.
During the televised debate, Conservative Party Vice-Chairman MP Nickie Aiken said he should not get the Tory Whip back, adding that Nadine Dorries had lost him for six months after his previous appearance in a previous series .
