First Dates star Fred Sirieix started a rumble in the I’m A Celebrity jungle when he attacked Nigel Farage over Brexit and branded his campaign as "shameful".
The 51-year-old Frenchman had been with the failed politician for less than two days before he questioned Farage's tactics and motivation for wanting the UK to leave Europe in 2016. Fred said the average person had "lost out" now that the UK was no longer part of the EU, but Farage insisted "they haven't lost out" despite multiple problems for the country since it left the union, reports the Daily Mirror.
The conversation started when Josie Gibson and Danielle Harold asked Farage what ex Prime Minister Boris Johnson was really like. He replied: “Entertaining… in small doses. [He’s] surprisingly introverted. You see this big act, fluffing the hair… surprising.
“I think he’s one of the most disorganised human beings that possibly ever lived. The whole thing’s bloody 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 Farage: “What’s the benefit of Brexit then? If you are an average person from Britain, what’s the benefit?” Farage said: “To know that we’re independent, we stand on our own two feet in the world.”
Fred said back: “Brexit was about immigration, I remember your poster. I thought it was shameful what you did Nigel. Shameful.” Farage replied: “Sadly, sadly it was absolutely true. It was a poster showing mass young men moving illegally across borders.”
Fred then said: “But it was about demonising migrants.” Farage 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.”
