Kezia Dugdale on dunny duty in I'm a Celebrity jungle

Kezia Dugdale

Dugdale has endured her first Bushtucker Trial.

The former Scottish Labour leader said she was excited to tell the camp about the Labour party - but ended up smelling of animal entrails and chicken dung as she complained about the taste of her ration of rice and beans.

After losing the trial, however, and disappointing those who put their faith in her, Ms Dugdale's first day in camp couldn't have gone worse.

Speaking on today's Good Morning Britain, the MSP said he was "disappointed" she signed up for the ITV hit before going on to address whether she'd be sacked on her return home.

She said: "I am used to dealing with rats and snakes but I've never had to deal with creepy crawlies before", she says.

"It's a great privilege and honour to be elected by the people to be their representative in parliament".

Richard went on to say "there is an issue" in that she sought authorisation but didn't get it before flying out to Australia.

Scottish Labour MSPs discussed whether Dugdale should be suspended over her decision earlier in the week, but decided not to issue a sanction.

Dugdale, who has said she hopes her appearance will allow her to communicate politics with new audiences, will no doubt have been delighted to see the boxes emblazoned with sophisticated titles including Theresa Dismay, Jeremy Crawbyn and even Sickola Sturgeon.

Leonard said he recognised the programme's popularity but said he wasn't sure if it was "a good way of getting across the message of socialism on television".

The contestants had to get stuck in right away as they took part in the "10 Downing Creek" Bushtucker Trial.
