Philip Hollobone first became MP for Kettering in the 2005 General Election when he defeated Labour’s Phil Sawford.
He held on to his seat in 2010 with a majority of 9,094, gathering 49.1 per cent of the vote.
This time he will be hoping to beat Labour’s Rhea Keehn, Chris McGlynn, who is standing for the Liberal Democrats, Jonathan Bullock, who is contesting the seat for UKIP, Rob Reeves, of the Green Party, and Derek Hilling, who is representing the English Democrats.
Mr Hollobone has often been named the country’s cheapest MP, claiming thousands of pounds less in expenses than most other MPs.
Mr Hollobone has also regularly been tipped to be the next Conservative MP to defect to UKIP, which he has always denied.
