Edwina Currie is a former MP and author and now now more recently has been a contestant on ITV’s “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” with Ant and Dec.
This controversial and much talked about personality is available for after dinner speaking engagements.
She was born Edwina Cohen but is more commonly known to us all by her first married name, Edwina Currie. As a British Member of Parliament she was first elected as a Conservative Party MP in 1983, where she was given the post of Junior Health Minister for two years, before resigning in 1988 over the controversy over salmonella in eggs.
By the time she lost her seat as an MP in 1997, she had begun a new career as a novelist and broadcaster. She is the author of six novels and has also written four works of non-fiction. In 2002, publication of Currie’s Diaries (1987–92) caused a sensation, as they revealed a four-year affair with John Major between 1984 and 1988.
