Nigel Farages three-word reponse as girlfriend meets him on Im A Celeb bridge

I’m a Celeb: Nigel Farage reunites with his girlfriend

Nigel Farage was greeted by his girlfriend Laure Ferrari on the iconic bridge during Sunday’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The former UKIP leader came in third place ahead of Tony Bellew and Sam Thompson.

After speaking with hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, Nigel made his way across the bridge where his girlfriend was waiting for him. Nigel laughed before asking Laure: “Hello, you alright?”

The former MP went on to quiz Laure on how her shoulder was before the couple embraced in a hug. Laure appeared to say something back to Nigel before she turned to the camera and smiled.

The moment didn’t go unnoticed by viewers at home and many took to social media to question why Nigel walked across the bridge so slowly.

@TVqueertiques tweeted: “Nigel is never showing himself, he is constantly thinking PR… even when he a was a kissing whoever that was on the bridge he was thinking cameras cameras cameras.” (sic)

@cxnerd16 pointed out: “Nigel taking the long way on the bridge for that extra air-time.”

During his exit interview, Ant and Dec asked Nigel why he wanted to take part in the show. He replied: “I came into it with a positive attitude. I haven’t done anything like camping since I was a teenager.

“But I was going to be 60 next birthday and getting to the stage where I wouldn’t be able to do it. It is very physical, carrying the a water up the hill.”

He added: “So I threw myself into everything 100 percent.”

When asked whether he was surprised at how far he had come, he added: “I’m not surprised, I am absolutely thrilled. Not everyone likes the stuff I campaigned for over the years.

“But I hope this show has shown I am as human as anybody.

“I threw myself into camp life 100 percent. If you asked me if would I do it again, I think I probably would.”

After Nigel had left camp, Ant and Dec confirmed Sam Thompson had won the 2023 series of I’m A Celeb and crowned him King of the Jungle.

Sitting on the throne looking close to tears, Sam said of his experience: “I feel overwhelmed, I didn’t even think I would get invited on the show.”

He added: “I am so grateful, I have dreamed of being on this show. You just made a boy’s dream come true.”
