Lembit Opik is better known for appearing as a celebrity on TV rather than watching it.
But details of expense claims published by the Daily Telegraph today reveal he is also a fan of the gogglebox.
The Montgomeryshire MP (and star of numerous reality shows) tried to claim £2,499 for a 42-inch plasma television.
The claim was turned down - proof, says Mr Opik, that the system works.
He was re-imbursed £40 for a legal summons for non-payment of his council tax on his second home in south London.
The former Welsh Lib Dem leader says he's willing to pay back the claim.
