One of Nigel Farage’s co-stars on the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has accused him of lying in a social media post. The controversial TV personality, Fred Sirieix, made the accusation in May 2019, before the General Election held later that year.
In a lengthy essay posted on social media, Fred Sirieix expressed his concerns about the state of society and the normalization of bigotry and racism. He explicitly mentioned Nigel Farage, stating that he had recently admitted that lies are told in all elections. Fred argued that honesty is a fundamental value and the foundation of trust and love in our relationships and society.

Food critic Grace Dent made sick jokes about Farage’s 2010 plane crash, while championship fighter Tony Bellew branded him an “absolute maniac” for his opinion on immigration. Bellew argued that a person’s color should not matter and that it is important to judge people based on their character rather than their appearance.
