Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg is outraged by Tory plans to force him to compete on 'Celebrity Big Bother' early next year in a plan to raise the profile of the coalition government.
The move follows the success of right leaning Tory Nadine Dorries on 'I'm a Celebrity get me out of here!' as well as previous appearances of both Tories and Lib Dems on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
"This is a plot to get Neck out of the way for important votes." Lib Dem deputy Simon Hughes said "We have the Leveson vote coming up as well as votes on more powers to snoop on the Internet."
"Look we need people to notice what we are doing." David Cameron said "Nick hasn't got a lot of power and apart from making me toast he isn't really needed so he is perfect t send to a reality show for a month. That way we can raise the profile of the government." He continued "I don't know what he is complaining about. His predecessor as Lib Dem Leader Charles Kennedy was always on quiz shows."
Mayor of London Boris Johnson weighed in. "I was going to go into the house myself. I get lots of good ratings when I go on 'Have I got news for you' they want Nick to go on because they think if I win I will be able to challenge Dave for the leadership."
A spokesman of ITV said "Big Brother' is fun and not about politics. We have had politicians on before most notably George Galloway. We would welcome Nick Clegg on the show."
