Nadine Dorries has faced two consecutive bushtucker trials on ITV's I'm A Celebrity, and one woman's anger could yet lead to more for the MP.
The wife of John Butler, a man Dorries was accused of having an affair with last year, has revealed she is "loving" the show's trials and has voted for the Mid-Bedfordshire member to face them "hundreds of times".
Rachael Butler, of Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, even told The Sun that she has the voting number for the MP on speed dial.
Butler said: “I voted for her to do the trial thing. I wanted to see her suffer. I don’t want her to be voted off.

“They go into a five star hotel if they leave. Bugger that I don’t want to see that. Keep her suffering."
“I must have voted for her hundreds of times," she confessed. "It’s worth the money to keep watching her eat testicles and anuses."
“The public seem to be picking on her and I’m like ’carry on, keep on picking on Dorries’ she deserves everything she gets.”
Dorries, suspended from the Conservative party for heading into the Australian jungle, had a six-month relationship with married Butler, beginning last January.
Butler claimed his marriage was "an abusive relationship" and left his wife because she was an alcoholic. The two lived together briefly before they broke up later in the year.

In turn, Rachael Butler accused Dorries of being a "marriage wrecker", adding that Dorries "is not the saintly person she appears to be... people think of her as a pillar of society but in fact she's a marriage wrecker."
Butler's comments on the absent MP came as neighbouring MPs offered their support on Thursday for Dorries' constituents while she was away.
Alistair Burt and Andrew Selous, both Conservative MPs for neighbouring constituencies, have contacted Dorries' office offering their services should any emergency arise.
Selous said: “I did ring Mid Beds constituency to offer my help ... I can’t interfere, but of course I will help anyone who is in urgent need. I am sure Nadine’s staff will be doing what they can in her absence. But if they do want an actual MP to help them, I have offered.”
On Wednesday, BBC Three Counties Radio confronted Dorries' parliamentary assistant in an uncomfortable in interview discussing how the office was operating without the MP. You can listen to the audio of the interview below.
