Nigel Farage and Sam Thompson have pointed the finger at one another over who was to blame for burning the camp’s food.
A feud erupted between the two stars when both accused the other of burning the rice. “One’s blaming the other, Sam’s blaming Nigel, Nigel’s blaming Sam,” a campmate said of the situation.
Farage, who had been made sous chef by camp leader Danielle Harold, left the rice boiling and was under the impression that Thompson would watch over it.
He told the reality TV star: “I’ve put the rice on and it’s reducing slowly. There’s enough water in there for the moment.”
Thompson decided he had enough time for a lie-down, saying: “I can sort of chill.”
The GB News presenter said: “That should be fine for a few minutes.”
In the Bush Telegraph, Farage explained: “Everybody was asleep. I thought, ‘Well look, we’ve got to get the rice on.’ So I put the rice on, the water’s reducing in the rice and soon it’s going to be done.”
However, Thompson’s lie down proved to be far too cosy, as the star was soon fast asleep.
He later awoke to the unmistakable smell of burning rice. Alarmed, he exclaimed: “Why does this smell like it’s burning?”
After checking the pot, Thompson was dismayed to discover the rice was in fact burnt.
