Nigel Farage arrived in Australia ahead of his rumoured I’m A Celebrity … gig and these 17 people spoke for many
Nigel Farage is among those rumoured to be taking part in the new series of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! which returns to ITV on 19 November.
Not quite live from the jungle yet But they will be very soon!

Nothing official, you understand, but the fact the former UKIP leader has just arrived in Brisbane didn’t exactly quell the speculation, as you might imagine.
NEW: Nigel Farage has just landed in Australia after signing a £1.5 MILLION deal to appear on I’m A Celeb – the highest fee ever paid pic.twitter.com/6a5Y01AWxc

Farage has previously ruled out taking part in the show, saying it was ‘humiliating’ – that sort of thing has never stopped him before, surely? – but told a reporter down under that he ‘might be going in’.
He wouldn’t be the first politician to take part in the show, obviously, having previously featured Matt Hancock (last year) and back in the day, Nadine Dorries. Whatever happened to her?
And while we await confirmation that Farage will be joining the camp – or otherwise – these 17 responses nail what many people were saying ahead of the show’s return (word of warning – may contain swear words. Lots of them).
I think this is reprehensibly awful to be honest. Giving a platform to soften and humanise someone on the far right who has caused so much division and hate so we can forgive him cos he eats koala genitalia or whatever. https://t.co/kFyxHU7l7M

Don’t watch it, don’t send them money in phone votes, don’t reward the advertisers, and fuck Ant and Dec for platforming him, no matter how many oh so edgy winks to camera and cutting remarks they make. https://t.co/EeG7NRWWut

Farage will be a good sport, muck in, engage in lots of blokey humour, eat a large portion of kangaroo anus, millions of #ImACeleb viewers will say “I quite like him actually” and that is why we are a completely fucked up country pic.twitter.com/l7QmQEfNkR

Just so upset by this. Ant, Dec & ITV platforming a xenophobe who revels in whipping up division & poison. What has this country become? https://t.co/RRsB9to8JX

Let’s call this what it is. Fucking sickening. It’s the normalising and softening of a man who spends his time galvanising the far right with rhetoric. Who goes out on small boats to accuse those most desperate and in need of destroying our country, all for the views. Who wipes… https://t.co/iMZtLoSmpr

If they make Nigel Farage eat an arsehole on I’m A Celebrity it’s cannibalism.
