GB News presenter Nigel Farage will take part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2023.

The former MEP will join nine other celebrities including: Jamie Lynn Spears, Sam Thompson, Josie Gibson, Fred Sirieix, Nella Rose, Grace Dent, Marvin Humes, Nick Pickard and Danielle Harold.

Farage says his hope for the series is to dispel public misconceptions that he is “mean spirited” but he predicts he will be voted for plenty of trials because “millions hate him.”

He joined GB News in June 2021 to host the Sunday morning political discussion programme The Political Correction. On 19 July 2021 he begun hosting the Monday to Thursday evening show Farage.

Outlining his reasons for finally accepting an offer to take part this year, Nigel said: “it’s such a mental test and maybe I will discover who I really am.”

“I understood why Matt Hancock did it. He went in there with his reputation on the floor.

The truth is after the banking issue I raised a few months ago, I was standing up for a million people who had lost their bank accounts, then winning at the TRIC awards, I am going in at a different stage of my career.”

Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will welcome the celebrities to the jungle in the first episode of the 2023 series on Sunday 19th November.
