The veteran Tory backbencher's scheduled appearance on the Channel 4 programme was bizarrely announced by Theresa May during PMQs.

Lichfield MP Mr Fabricant, who has previously described himself as 'not exclusively gay', had raised the West Midlands' bid to host the Commonwealth Games when Mrs May made the revelation.

She said: "I have noticed that he is shortly to appear on a Channel 4 programme called Celebrity First Dates.

"What I'm not sure about is whether he is the celebrity or the first date."

The Prime Minister added that the Commonwealth Games represented 'a unique opportunity' for the West Midlands and would 'promote global Britain across the Commonwealth'.

She said she had no doubt that the region could 'continue the UK's rich history of hosting successful sporting events'.
