Nick Ferrari has put Defence Secretary Ben Wallace on the spot over Nadine Dorries' appointment as Culture Secretary.
Nick asked: "If appearing on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' is enough for Nadine Dorries to be Culture Secretary, can I be head of Ofcom?"
Speaking in defence of the appointment on Nadine Dorries as Culture Secretary, Mr Wallace said: "I think...Nadine is remember also a bestselling author.
"I mean I couldn't write a chapter. She has written lots and lots of books [and] sold thousands of books.
"And if being a successful author isn't part of culture, media and sport, I don't know what is."
Mr Wallace went on to describe Nadine Dorries as a "great colleague" and said she is "pretty well-qualified" to be Culture Secretary.
