Nadine Dorries to present Friday night programme for TalkTV

She becomes the fourth sitting Conservative MP with a programme on an opinion-led TV channel.

By Bron Maher

Conservative MP Nadine Dorries will host a Friday night talk show on TalkTV from next week.

TalkTV said the hour-long programme, which will air at 8pm on Fridays beginning on 3 February, will be “an irreverent look at the week’s news and a lively mix of topical chat with guests from the world of politics, culture and sport”.

The former Culture Secretary‘s first interview will be with Boris Johnson, in whose cabinet she served.

Dorries said: “As someone who’s never been afraid to speak their mind, I’m delighted to be joining the team at TalkTV for Friday Night with Nadine, where I’ll be putting my 23 year political career and experiences at the despatch box to good use.

“Boris Johnson continues to dominate so much of the political narrative since his departure from No.10. Now’s the time to find out what he really thinks about a whole range of pressing issues.”
