I’m A Celebrity bosses ‘are expecting a HUGE fallout’ between Nigel Farage and a campmate who branded him ‘irrelevant and useless’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! bosses have reportedly predicted a fallout between Nigel Farage and a campmate who branded him ‘irrelevant and useless’.
The hit reality series returns to ITV on 19th November and ITV bosses are already bracing themselves for a major head-to-head.
According to The Sun, Nigel, 59, is likely to clash with Fred Sirieix, 51, of First Dates, who wrote in a 2017 tweet that the National Assembly of France deputy Marine Le Pen was ‘as irrelevant and useless as her friend @Nigel_Farage’.
In another 2017 tweet, Fred wrote: ‘Farage is a coward who likes money, attention & the sound of his own voice far too much. Definitely not a selfless idealistic revolutionary.’
Fred rose to fame as the Maître d’ in the Channel 4 dating show, a role he secured due to his decades of work in Michelin-starred restaurants.

Bad blood: Nigel is likely to clash with Fred Sirieix, 51, of First Dates, who wrote in a 2017 tweet that the National Assembly of France deputy Marine Le Pen was ‘as irrelevant and useless as her friend @Nigel_Farage’
In 2018, he wrote: ‘In a taxi. Nigel Farage on the radio. Just politely asked the driver to switch to @vibesfm’.
It is not known exactly where Fred’s dislike of Nigel comes from but he did voice support for Britain remaining in the EU while Nigel was a staunch Brexiteer.
Fred has been open with his issues with the Home Office over the years.
In 2019, he wrote: ‘.@patel4witham @ukhomeoffice Just got a letter from [email protected] apparently you need proof I have been in the UK for last 5 years.
He continued: ‘Is this a joke? I have lived here for 27 years continuously.’
Fred called Brexit ‘a con’ in 2021 and said the outlook for the UK food and restaurant industry was ‘grim’.
Meanwhile, Nigel is known for his controversial opinions, his inflammatory speech, and his fierce Remain stance.
He once called Brexit: ‘the greatest moment in modern British history’.

Meanwhile, bosses are also said to be in crisis talks with Nigel’s team after he raised concerns about the show’s cigarette ban.
In an attempt to keep the former politician interested, producers are reportedly considering changing this rule for him.
Speaking on the Paper Cuts podcast, political journalist Ava Evans said: ‘Would you like some insider knowledge of why Nigel Farage was considering not doing it? It is the smoking ban. You can’t smoke and he is a very heavy smoker.’
‘Will they let him smoke at the back?’ host Miranda Sawyer asked.
‘I think that’s being negotiated,’ Ava replied. ‘That was a discussion that Chris Moyles also had last year because he is also a very heavy smoker.’
