Celebrity Big Brother’s Shilpa Shetty to join MP Keith Vaz’s election campaign

Former Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty is reportedly planning to join Labour MP Keith Vaz’s campaign trail in Leicester East this month.

The Bollywood star has known Vaz since he invited her to meet Tony Blair at the Commons after her reality TV win in 2007.

“In India, Bollywood stars stand for parliament themselves,” the Telegraph quoted a member of Vaz’s campaign team as saying.

“It will be lovely to see them bring a bit of razzmatazz to the campaign,” the member added.
