Not only has Tomlinson been caught passing confidential parliamentary information to his mates at Wonga, he has also been busily trying to erase his past links with Wonga by editing his website.

The Mirror can now reveal he brokered a deal worth £30,000 for Wonga to sponsor his local football team, and that Tomlinson accepted donations of £30,218 from the club's chairman since 2014.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing and the chairman, Jez Webb, told the Mirror the similarity in the amounts is coincidental.

In 2011, a year after he was elected as MP for Swindon North, Tomlinson arranged a four year deal worth thousands of pounds for Wonga to sponsor local football team Swindon Supermarine.
