SLEAZY MP Chris Pincher has been told by Tory chiefs that he can no longer sit in the Commons as a Conservative.
The blow comes after The Sun revealed last night that Mr Pincher allegedly groped two men at a swanky Tory members' club.
This afternoon a spokesperson for the Tory whips office said that a formal complaint into the MP has been lodged with parliament's sleaze watchdog.
They said: "Having heard that a formal complaint has been made to the Independent Complaints and Grievances Service, the Prime Minister has agreed with the Chief Whip that the whip should be suspended from Chris Pincher while the investigation is ongoing."

Pincher sensationally resigned as Deputy Chief Whip on Thursday following revelations of his alleged drunken antics.
In a shocking letter to the PM Mr Pincher said: “Last night I drank far too much.
“I’ve embarrassed myself and other people which is the last thing I want to do and for that I apologise to you and to those concerned.
“I think the right thing to do in the circumstances is for me to resign as Deputy Chief Whip.
“I owe it to you and the people I’ve caused upset to, to do this.
“I want to assure you that you will continue to have my full support from the back benches, and I wish you all the best as you deal with aftershocks of Covid and the challenges of international inflation. It has been the honour of my life to have served in Her Majesty’s Government.”
