‘Black people don’t like you!’ I’m A Celeb’s Nella Rose accuses Nigel Farage of being ‘anti-immigrant’ and says ‘everyone hates’ the former UKIP leader in tense showdown hours after her furious row with Fred Sirieix

Date:

Nella Rose has furiously hit out at Nigel Farage, claiming that black people ‘don’t like him’ in a tense spat on Wednesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here — a day after the social media star sparked a row with campmate Fred Sirieix. 

In dramatic scenes, Nella accused the former UKIP leader of being ‘anti-immigrant’ and claimed that ‘black people don’t like him,’ adding that he ‘wants all of them gone.’

While Nigel attempted to explain his side, noting that it’s ‘impossible to get a GP appointment,’ Nella hit back by claiming it’s been caused by a lack of funding for the NHS.

The pair ended their exchange by ‘agreeing to disagree’ on their views, with Nella noting that they ‘dont have to come to a common ground.’

The exchange began while the pair were sat by the bath, with Nella asking Nigel: ‘Let’s get everything out in the open. All the tea is coming out now… apparently you’re anti-immigrants?’

Drama! Nella Rose and Nigel Farage were embroiled in a tense spat in Wednesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity just a day after the social media star sparked a row with campmate Fred Sirieix

At odds: In dramatic scenes, Nella accused the former UKIP boss of being ‘anti-immigrant’ and claimed that ‘black people don’t like him,’ adding that he ‘wants all of them gone’

Nigel asked: ‘Who told you that?’

Nella said: ‘The internet.’

Nigel replied: ‘Oh, well there we are then it must be true,’ while Nella asked: ‘It must be! OK, but then why don’t black people like you?’

Nigel replied: ‘You’d be amazed, they do,’ to which Nella reacted: ‘Nigel! Nigel!’

Nigel said: ‘If you came with me through South London, you’d be astonished.’

Nella asked: ‘So everyone hates you for no reason? Not that everyone hates you, that was so bad. Sorry.’

Nigel replied: ‘You can disagree with somebody, but to chuck around accusations the way they’ve been chucked around is grossly unfair. Anti-immigrant, right? No, no, all I’ve said is we cannot go on with the numbers coming to Britain that are coming.’

Nella said: ‘I’m one of the numbers?’ which led the former UKIP leader to add: ‘So that’s it then, should it be five million a year, 10 million… you don’t seem to understand.’

Nella said: ‘Those immigrants that are coming in, I came in,’ and Nigel insisted: ‘Hang on! Think!’

Nella asked: ‘What is so wrong about immigrants?’

Nigel said: ‘Listen. Since 2000, the British population has increased by 10 million. 10 million.’

Nella said: ‘Good thing, right?’

Nigel replied: ‘Good thing, unless you want a GP appointment…’

Nella asked: ‘I’m stopping you getting a GP appointment? You’re not getting an appointment because the NHS is lacking funding. I bet you anything if every single immigrant or from immigrant descent was to leave the UK, all your doctors, go… most of your doctors are Asian right? Most of your nurses are African women, right?

‘You want us gone, that’s all I understood.’

Nigel said: ‘Stop it. Stop, it that’s not… Nella, you’re not listening to a single word I’m saying. You’re not.’

Nella said: ‘It’s ok for us to disagree on this.’

Nigel added: ‘We can agree to disagree if you listen.’

Nella said: ‘I am listening to you.’

Nigel responded: ‘No you’re not.’

In the Bush Telegraph Nigel said: ‘What was interesting was at the end of it she said, ”Well, OK, we’re going to agree to disagree.” And that’s the important thing, agreeing to disagree.’

Nella said to Nigel: ‘My main point was that we’ve got into this jungle and I really like you and I want to know why everyone hated you.

‘We don’t have to come to a common ground. You probably like a lot of things that I don’t like. And I probably like a lot of things that you don’t like…we can have these conversations.’

Nigel Farage: ‘Never say never’ to running for prime minister 

Nigel Farage said he is not ruling out running for prime minister on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.

The former Ukip leader, 59, was asked if he would ever run by his jungle campmates during the Wednesday episode of the ITV reality programme.

He told TV star Sam Thompson and actress Danielle Harold: “I don’t know. We’ll see. Depends how much of a mess the country gets in.

“I honestly don’t know. I mean it’s not an easy job.”

Farage later told the Bush telegraph: “As for little me, there is a lot of speculation after they lose the next election, maybe Nigel becomes leader of the Tory party one day so there’s a lot of chatter about whether it is going to happen, I have no idea.

“The important thing is to say this, never say never.”

It came after he was quizzed in camp about who his favourite prime minister has been.

Farage said: “In my lifetime, two prime ministers who’ve been really strong, who’ve changed the country, one is (Margaret) Thatcher and one is (Tony) Blair.

“I didn’t like the way Blair changed the country at all, but I have to admit he was a strong leader and Margaret was a very strong leader.

They were tough times, but she changed the country completely.”

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV1 and ITVX.

Earlier in the show, Sam quizzed Nigel about whether he could see himself as Prime Minister in the future.

He asked the politician: ‘Who is your favourite Prime Minister ever in your lifetime?’

Nigel said: ‘Really, in my lifetime, two Prime Ministers who’ve been really strong, who’ve changed the country: one’s Thatcher and one’s Blair. 

‘I didn’t like the way Blair changed the country at all but I have to admit he was a strong leader. Margaret was a very strong leader. They were tough times, but she changed the country completely.’

Danielle asked Nigel: ‘Would you ever want to run?’

Nigel replied: ‘I don’t know. We’ll see. Depends how much of a mess the country gets in. I honestly don’t know. It’s not an easy job.’

Former City broker Nigel led UKIP – the UK Independence Party – from 2006 until 2009 and again from 2010 to 2016.

He joined the party – which campaigned for the UK to leave the EU – in 1993 after leaving the Conservatives, and was elected to Brussels as an MEP in 1999.

As UKIP leader, he expanded the party’s horizons to develop solid policies beyond opposition to EU membership, including on immigration – with campaigning that claimed European migrants were depriving British people of jobs.

It made him popular among certain parts of the electorate, and while UKIP enjoyed European election and local council success Nigel was never able to replicate this in UK general elections, despite himself standing seven times for Parliament.

One of its most infamous posters featured a giant hand pointing at the viewer. Its text read: ’26 million people in Europe are looking for work. And whose jobs are they after?’

In 2010, on the day of the UK general election, Nigel was travelling in a light aircraft flying a UKIP banner when the plane came down after the banner got entangled in its tail fin. He suffered grievous injuries including broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Nigel stood down as leader weeks after the Brexit referendum, claiming that he had achieved his ‘political ambition’ – and later formed the Brexit Party, now Reform UK, of which he remains honorary president.

The spat came hours after Nella sparked fury on social media when she accused campmate Fred of ‘disrespecting’ her. 

Nella, 26, took umbrage with Fred, 51, for joking he was old enough to be her father, hours after she confided in him her dad passed away in 2020. 

Nella’s father Kamango Paul Hollela tragically died four years after her mother.

Nella had told Fred: ‘I don’t want to be around you. I only allow people to disrespect me once. You hurt my feelings. 

‘I was very upset… you keep trying to speak to me when I don’t want to speak to you. I would rather stay away from you, I don’t want to eat your food, I don’t want to talk to you. We can just live, you live on that side, I live on this side.’

Fred replied: ‘I am so sorry. Can I just say? First of all, I am sorry I’ve offended you. I am unaware that you felt offended. I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26.’

Nella said: ‘I’m not stupid, you’re not going to little girl me, you’re not.’

Fred’s First Dates co-stars jumped to his defence after the scenes aired on Tuesday night, while Rylan Clark said the argument had left him ‘raging’.

The hashtag ‘Poor Fred’ began trending on X – formerly known as Twitter.
