Im A Celeb fans uncover rift between Nigel Farage and campmates Sam and Nick

I’m A Celeb: Nigel Farage hits back at Hancock comparisons

I’m A Celebrity fans have discovered a potential rift between Nigel Farage and some of his former campmates. Many of the controversial politician’s former campers have snubbed him since leaving the jungle by refusing to follow him on social media, including jungle winner, Sam Thompson.

Marvin Humes, Nella Rose, Nick Pickard and Grace Dent, have also decided against following Nigel on platforms such as Instagram, while the Brexit architect has only followed former EastEnders actress and fellow camper Danielle Harold.

While there may be some behind-the-scenes bad blood, Nigel’s divisive political stances could also be at play. Many long-time I’m A Celeb fans boycotted this series due to his participation, which is believed to have contributed to the significant drop in ratings from last year.

While known as a firebrand on Twitter, Instagram and his GB News show, he only clashed with a couple of campmates during his time in the jungle.

The 59-year-old rowed with First Dates star Fred Sirieix in discussions about Brexit. He also argued with YouTuber Nella, 26, over immigration and cultural appropriation.
