The GB News presenter had an excellent response to silence any haters

Nigel Farage has brilliantly responds to fellow campmate who asked how it feels to be “unpopular”.

The celebrities were sat in the camp when food critic Grace Dent made a dig at Farage’s reputation, which she saw as less than favourable.

Speaking to the GB News Presenter, she asked: “When you stand up in a room and make a speech that’s incredibly unpopular, do you think that flavour of it is 'you only live once'?”

Farage quickly replied: “Definitely.”

Dent double-downed with another hard-hitting question.

She asked: “You don’t mind being unpopular?”

Farage excellently quipped in just six words: “It depends who you’re unpopular with.”

The exchange came after Farage explained new details of his plane crash, which will limit him from performing certain Bushtucker Trials, to his fellow campmates.

The former politician explained how he left the hospital early: “I discharged myself, I got bored.”

Dent asked him if his “devil may care attitude” shapes his life and Farage agreed with her analysis of him.

He explained: “Yeah. That [the plane crash] was one of the things. I’ve had a few things happen which I think does actually help with thinking, ‘Sod it I’m going to do what I believe’.”

Farage, alongside YouTuber Nella Rose, participated in the first Bushtucker Trial of the series yesterday.

The pair had to chomp down pizzas with stomach-turning toppings, including; “Pepper Groaney”, a “Veggie Scarian” and a “Quattro For-gag-io”.

Despite many squirms and lots of gagging, the duo managed to secure an impressive nine out of 10 stars for the camp.

After the challenge, Farage caught up with his fellow campmates after their first night together.

During a discussion with campmate Josie Gibson, Farage was directly asked what he thought of Boris Johnson.

“What’s he like on a personal level?” Gibson asked.

EastEnders star Danielle Harold added: “Forget politics, as a guy.”

Farage replied: “Entertaining… in small doses.

“[He’s] surprisingly introverted. You see this big act, fluffing the hair… surprising.”

Farage said: “I think he’s one of the most disorganised human beings that possibly ever lived.”

Johnson is set to join GB News as a presenter, programme maker and commentator in January.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues Wednesday 22nd November at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
