Tobias Ellwood, MP Conservative

Diary: Cameron's captain upsets the burghers of Bournemouth

Tobias Ellwood, the Tory MP for Bournemouth East, is a 6ft 2in former Army captain. He is such a fan of David Cameron that, during the 2006 leadership contest, he was pushing notes under the doors of other MPs pleading for their support.

Last month, he lost his position as a parliamentary aide when the Defence Secretary, Liam Fox, resigned – but the whips quickly found him another berth.
