ITV I'm A Celebrity stars forced to leave camp as row erupts between Fred Sirieix and Nigel Farage

This year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! campmates are beginning to get to know each other as they settle into life in the Australian jungle, and some stars have already exchanged heated comments. The second episode of the hit ITV show, which aired on Monday, 20 November, saw the celebrities quiz each other about their careers and lives, and Nigel Farage was unsurprisingly questioned about politics. First Dates star Fred Sirieix wasted no time in bringing up Brexit to the UKIP founder, and was keen to get to know what Nigel really thought of the UK leaving the European Union.
Fred asked Nigel: “What’s the benefit of Brexit then? If you are an average person from Britain, what’s the benefit?" Nigel, who was the leader of the Brexit Party from 2019 until 2021, said: "To know that we’re independent, we stand on our own two feet in the world.” Clearly unimpressed with his response, Fred then said: “Brexit was about immigration, I remember your poster. I thought it was shameful what you did Nigel. Shameful.” Nigel attempted to defend himself against Fred and responded: "Sadly, sadly it was absolutely true.
It was a poster showing mass young men moving illegally across borders.” Angered, Fred said: "But it was about demonising migrants," to which Nigel replied: “No it wasn’t. In your view it was, but it wasn’t.” Fred went on to say that he believes the "average person" in the UK has "lost out" because of Brexit, while Nigel insisted they "haven't lost out". In the Bush Telegraph, Nigel said he knew it "wouldn't take long" for somebody to bring up politics.
