More than a year after Nadine Dorries appeared on the reality show I’m a Celebrity… she has finally done what MPs are required to do, and filled in the appropriate part of the Register of Members’ Interests. Thus we learn that being humiliated in the jungle is less lucrative than we thought. According to the Register, she was paid £6,960 while she was on the show, plus £13,268 two months later for associated interviews and photo shoots, making £20,228 in all – half what the pundits guessed she had received.

Why Are They Famous ? - Gloria Hunniford

Main Claim: Middle-of-the-road empress of blarney. Like a blonde Terry Wogan, Gloria's brand of smoothly polished populism has secured her a steady niche in soft broadcasting. A way with a dazzling smile, a smooth phrase, and a housewife-pleasing genius for light entertainment make her the consummate professional. Now Gloria has married at the ripe old age of 58-but-you'd-never-guess-it, wedding some millionaire crimper fellow. Gloria surprised us all by arriving in a horse-drawn carriage. James Galway played Danny Boy, and Cliff Richard read the lesson. You get the picture, readers. "I feel wonderful, absolutely on top on the world," said Gloria. New husband: "I found a woman with beauty, brains and a soul."

HOW WE MET: JAMES HERBERT AND GORDON GILTRAP

Brought up in the East End of London, James Herbert (near right), 55, is one of Britain's most successful thriller writers, with a score of bestsellers to his name, including The Rats, The Fog, and most recently 48. He writes at his home in West Sussex, where he lives with his wife. The guitarist-composer Gordon Giltrap, 50, is one of guitar music's most durable and individual talents. Though he never joined a band, he had hits throughout the Sixties and Seventies, is responsible for several of TV's most recognisable theme tunes (including the BBC's Holiday and ITV's Wish You Were Here), and recently had a major part in Sir Cliff Richard's musical, Heathcliff. A Londoner by birth, he now lives near Solihull
