KEZIA DUGDALE is reportedly heading to the I’m a Celebrity jungle in a shock last-minute call-up.
The former Scottish Labour leader would be joining the likes of Boris Johnson’s father Stanley, Jenny McAlpine from Coronation Street and champion boxer Amir Khan.
The move would mean the Lothian MSP leaving her constituents without a representative for up to three weeks while she was taking part in the show.
The news has been poorly received by some on social media – five years after MP Nadine Dorries was criticised for ‘abandoning’ voters when she was a contestant on the reality show.
Labour MSP Jenny Marra tweeted: “Election to parliament is a privilege to serve and represent people.
“It’s not a short cut to celebrity.”
