First Minister's Questions

Politician Kezia Dugdale has become the latest campmate to be evicted from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The former Scottish Labour leader lasted 11 days in the Australian jungle after her entrance as a late arrival.

The Edinburgh and Lothians MSP caused controversy because she had asked for three weeks off to participate.

She told ITV: "I always knew it was going to be a big gamble for me politically.

"I know I'm going back to a good deal of criticism and I will take that face on. I've got to have a lot of conversations with people but I'm going back with my head held high.

"I came out here to do what I wanted to do. I love my job, it's a great privilege to be a Labour politician and I fully intend on continuing to do it for a very long time."

Dugdale said she wanted to go on the show to show that politicians weren't all the same.

She explained: "To take on the myth that every politician looks like Stanley (Johnson) - old, white, male, pale and stale. I wanted to show that there is a variety of people out there."
