Nigel Farage Contemplates I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Appearance

In a surprising turn of events, Nigel Farage, the 59-year-old politician, is contemplating joining the cast of this year’s “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” reality show.

Nigel made this revelation on GB News, stating that he would provide a ‘definitive answer’ within the next 48 hours.

It’s reported that he’s been offered substantial sums by ITV, and the lure of a mega-money offer for the upcoming show has tempted him.

Connecting with Young Audiences

Nigel Farage explained his rationale for considering the show, highlighting the approximately 10 million young people who watch “I’m A Celebrity” each night.

He believes that many of these viewers may not typically engage with news or newspapers but still care about the future of their country.

By appearing on the show, Farage believes he could connect with this demographic, offering solutions and engaging them in important discussions.

Contractual Talks and Toff’s Role

While he hasn’t made a final decision, Nigel Farage disclosed that he’s in contractual talks about the show.

Negotiations for his appearance were personally managed by former “Made In Chelsea” star Georgia Toffolo, known as Toff, who won the show in 2017 and owns the Visionary Talent Agency (VTA).

The exact earnings Farage might receive are yet to be revealed, but speculations suggest it could be up to £1 million.

Nigel Farage: A Controversial and Engaging Addition

TV producers have long seen Nigel Farage as a sought-after addition to the “I’m A Celebrity” lineup due to his controversial and polarizing image, expecting him to spark engaging camp discussions and boost viewership.

The ITV insider noted that this unconventional deal, brokered by a former show winner, is indeed a ‘goodie.’

Nigel Farage is known for his strong opinions, making him a captivating contestant.

From Declines to Contemplation

It’s worth noting that Nigel Farage had publicly declined multiple offers from “I’m A Celebrity” in the past, expressing concerns about the potentially humiliating nature of the show.

However, he also acknowledged the adage that one should never say never.

This move follows in the footsteps of other prominent political figures who have entered the jungle in previous seasons.

Awaiting the Official Lineup

As of now, the official lineup for this year’s “I’m A Celebrity” has not been announced.

ITV has stated that any names circulating are mere speculation.

However, rumors suggest that jockey Frankie Dettori and This Morning presenter Josie Gibson might be among the cast, with discussions also involving First Dates’ Fred Sirieix.

The choice of political figures in the show, such as Nigel Farage, aims to create a dynamic and engaging season, following the attention garnered by former Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s participation in the previous season.
