Nigel Farage’s girlfriend gives her views on PM rumours and more
ITV insiders have reportedly branded Nigel Farage a “waste of money” following his appearance on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
The former UKIP leader is allegedly being paid £1.5million by ITV to appear on the 2023 series along with the likes of Josie Gibson and Marvin Humes.
However, it is understood, ITV bosses are “tearing their hair out” as they try to find footage of Farage where he is not talking about politics.
According to the Daily Mirror, some crew working on the show in Australia have called out the former MP for being “dull and a waste of money”.
A senior TV source told the Mirror: “People I know working on the show think Farage is one of the least interesting campmates ever.

“He is very boring and producers have struggled with fun storylines to show a different side to him.
“He’s good for Brexit and culture wars stuff, but outside of that, the local wildlife is more entertaining than he is.
“One example is a few of them were talking about their favourite movies and he couldn’t come up with a single one! Politics is his life and basically outside of that he’s got no personality.”
