Nigel Farage for Celebrity Big Brother?
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he’d be “tempted” to shack up in the Celebrity Big Brother house, were the right opportunity to arise.
Telling the Daily Star that he would be “very good” as a contestant on the show, he confessed he would primarily be entering the house in order to “mentally torture” EU bosses, if only Channel 5 would introduce a ‘politicians-only’ series.
“I would like to torture them, mentally, slowly, for all the bad things they’ve done”, he boasted, when asked how he might fare if locked in a reality TV house with the likes of EU president Jean-Claude Juncker.
Questioned about his reality TV viability in general, Farage joked:
“I’m hoping there could be a brand new programme called Strictly Come Drinking. I’d be very good at that one”.
Paddy Power odds have it at 10-1 that the divisive politician could appear as a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother.
“I’m well known for saying what I think and for not holding back on my opinions. So I think if I got into one of those situations it could be tricky”, continued Farage.
We know, Nige. We know.
