I'm A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec make savage Nigel Farage dig minutes into show

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, the hosts of I'm A Celebrity, made a cheeky joke about Nigel Farage just minutes into the show, which launched on Sunday, 19 November. Dec said: "There's the man who's got everyone talking. Nigel Farage.
Nigel now, not just known for his controversial political career, he's also got his own show on GB News. "Now of course, he won't be presenting that show over the next three weeks. So we'd like to take this opportunity to apologise to all of GB News viewers," Ant then added savagely: "Sorry Keith, sorry Linda." This Morning star Josie Gibson, 38, was the first to meet Nigel as they were dropped into the Australian Outback for the first time in the show's history.
She admitted: "I thought this was a good idea until they dropped us off in the middle of nowhere. I've never been so petrified." Nigel responded: "It's something different in life, it's an adventure! It's a challenge, it's not going to be easy, but why not?" Josie couldn't resist the opportunity to rib him about politics, as she said: "It can't be worse than Brexit!" to which laughed and replied: "Oh... didn't take long did it? Didn't take long.
I had a feeling we'd get a bit of that!" Josie ended the conversation with: "Only joking..." Ant and Dec faced a huge backlash last week over the decision to let the controversial former politician fly out to the jungle, with some fans threatening to boycott the show before it even began. It has been rumoured that production bosses have paid Nigel over £1.5million to join this year's list of famous faces. More than 1,000 people have sent complaints to Ant and Dec who are already down under ahead of filming and further celebrity arrivals.
