Kezia’s stint in the jungle is set to cause controversy as she’s going to miss the Budget and leave her constituents without their MSP for several weeks. 

A source told The Sun: “This signing is bound to annoy a lot of taxpayers. Kezia is going to be unable to perform her day job and serve her constituents for several weeks while she’s in the show.

“It might be good publicity for her, but there’s some who will think it’s not so good for the Labour party.”

Yes. Kezia is the partner of Jenny Gilruth who is a Scottish National Party MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes.

She tweeted: “I see @scottishlabour have developed their own unique take on the final day of #AntiBullyingWeek. Huge props, comrades! #TeamKez
