Can an MP be impeached?

Inspired by the current impeachment process in the US - and recognising that the Prime Minister is just an MP who has shown that they can command the confidence of the House of Commons - is there any process to expel an MP from their post except for calling a General Election, assuming no wrongdoing by said MP?

If not, what would the MP have to do before they could be legally expelled? Is there any behaviour or circumstances which would automatically exclude the MP from the House, or would proceedings have to be voted on in some way by the Commons?
