ITV I’m A Celeb’s Fred Sirieix slams ‘shameful’ Nigel Farage in heated clash

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! preview

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! saw a wholesome first episode on Sunday, but Monday brought a few rifts into the camp.

Tonight’s episode saw of the ITV reality show controversial MP Nigel Farage and popular chef Fred Sirieix at loggerheads over Brexit.

It began when This Morning star Josie Gibson brought up politics by asking Nigel about former Prime Minister Boris Johnson: “What’s he like on a personal level?”

Actress Danielle Harold added: “Forget politics, as a guy.”

Nigel replied: “Entertaining… in small doses. [He’s] surprisingly introverted. You see this big act, fluffing the hair… surprising.”

Josie asked: “Is he quite a fumbler in real life, or is that just on the stage?”

Nigel replied: “I think he’s one of the most disorganised human beings that possibly ever lived.

“The whole thing’s bl**** chaos. Shambles.”

In the Bush Telegraph Danielle said: “I found it so interesting to listen, sat with him picking his brains, having a chat. Then it got a little bit heated.”

Fred asked Nigel: “What’s the benefit of Brexit then? If you are an average person from Britain, what’s the benefit?”

Nigel said: “To know that we’re independent, we stand on our own two feet in the world.”

Fred added: “Brexit was about immigration, I remember your poster. I thought it was shameful what you did Nigel. Shameful.”

Nigel replied: “Sadly, sadly it was absolutely true. It was a poster showing mass young men moving illegally across borders.”

Fred continued: “But it was about demonising migrants.”

Nigel replied: “No it wasn’t. In your view it was, but it wasn’t.”

To which Fred said: “It’s not only just my view.”

In the Bush Telegraph Nigel said: “I knew it wouldn’t take long, I knew politics would rear its head as indeed it did. And Fred feels very strongly about it.”

Having moved away to wash up, Grace Dent said to Nick Pickard: “Brexit was his entire idea. It’s his specialist subject. Fred’s not going to change his mind on anything.”

In the Bush Telegraph Grace added: “I would 100% rather wash up than listen to another single word about Brexit. I was just like, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to go and put my head in that stream.’”

Nigel also said: “Brexit is about one thing and one thing only; being self-governing. We’re in charge. We can get it right, we can make an absolute mess of it but we’re in charge and the people who make those decisions we can hire and fire at elections where they have real power.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Tuesday at 9pm on ITV.
