Plymouth MP Johnny Mercer proving politics doesn't have to be dirty (Source: Dove)

We all know that politics is a dirty game, but one MP is trying to prove otherwise. Either that or he's trying to boost his rating in

Johnny Mercer, MP for Plymouth Moor View, has a starring role in a new Dove Men advert - broadcast in America - appearing topless as he lathers up the shower gel.

Mercer, who is one of the new intake for 2015, told Plymouth Herald: “When they asked me, I thought 'Why not? It will be a laugh'. It was really fun."

Unfortunately, I think it might be the first in a series of adverts but we'll have to wait and see. Hopefully it will be forgotten about quickly.

"They made him shave his chest for the shower scene so he spent the week itching which I don't think he enjoyed,” his wife Felicity Mercer said. No doubt in keeping with the government’s spending haircuts tomorrow.
