MUM Rachael Butler has hit out at MP Nadine Dorries for allegedly having an affair with her husband.
Rachael, 54, of Chipping Campden is said to have only learned of the romance between her husband John and the I'm A Celebrity... TV star this week.
Rachael and John got to know Mrs Dorries and her husband more than a decade ago.
The two couples had dinner at each other's houses and went on holiday to St Lucia.
Rachael told the Daily Mail: 'I just want everybody to know that Nadine Dorries is not the saintly person she appears to be.
"Because she's an MP, people think of her as a pillar of society. I'm shocked and hurt."
The Tory MP issued a statement saying she was 'in the early stages of a romantic relationship with John Butler'.
She added that "the status of our relationship altered over the Christmas period following his decision to leave his wife".
