The GB News presenter questioned Gibson’s reasons for wanting to do the trial

Josie Gibson has taken a jibe at Nigel Farage after her attempts to put herself up for a Bushtucker trial failed.

The This Morning Presenter was adamant to do the challenge. “I feel like I need to prove myself a bit now”, she said as tried to convince the others to let her do it.

The GB News presenter interjected by questioning Gibson’s reasons for wanting to do the trial.

He said: “Josie, you don’t need to. You’ve got to go into this saying I’m not frightened of whatever they’re going to throw at me. If you can’t say… then you shouldn’t do it, is my view.”

Gibson, miffed by Farage’s frank comments, shot down a push from Sam Thompson, who egged her on to do the trial.

Thompson said: “Josie, if you want to do it, you do it”, however she replied with a jibe at Farage instead.

“No, it’s alright. Let Nige do it, he wants the air time,” she said.

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, she said: “I should have fought my corner a bit more but he wants the airtime because he wants to prove himself to the nation.”


Farage was keen to do the trial, telling the campmates: ““I did a lot of Bushtucker Trials in the early phases, you boys have now caught up. So it’s my turn. My turn, simple as that.”

It was ultimately agreed upon that Farage and Marvin Humes would do the trial, sinisterly called Have a Grotty Little Christmas.

The pair were soaked in all sorts of festive condiments for a special Christmas-themed Bushtucker Trial.

Farage and Humes can be seen rummaging through a pit of festive food before Ant jokes they may need more ingredients.

They were confined to a tiny container filled with festive ingredients as they have to scramble to find stars for camp.

The duo won an impressive five out of five stars for the camp.

Farage has made it clear that he has wanted to appear on screen as much as possible.

"If you do the challenges, it's 25 per cent of the airtime. I'm looking at reaching a whole new audience," he told his camp mate Grace Dent.

Ant and Dec even joked about Farage’s comment, saying: “Shortly we'll be going into camp to reveal who'll be getting 25 per cent of the airtime tomorrow.”
