Nigel Farage has expressed his concern for the BBC form following their 'inflammatory' incident

Reform UK's Honorary President Nigel Farage has hit out at the BBC after the broadcaster left him outraged by a 'diversity monitoring form'.

Ahead of his appearance on their political show Question Time, Farage shared an insight into the company's policy backstage, as they urged him to fill out a form and disclose several personal details.

Sharing a video of the form on his social media platform X, formerly Twitter, Nigel was outraged by the questions required of him to answer within the paperwork.

Nigel said of his appearance on the show: "Tomorrow I'm doing Question Time. First time for about five years, number 37."

Revealing the sections of the form, Nigel continued: "I'm filling in a form - name, address, phone number, email is fine.

"I can live with that."

He then highlighted the controversial part of the form, fuming: "Do you agree to this email address being used for the purposes of clause 13 below?"

The clause in the form was revealed as "Diversity Monitoring". Nigel raged: "What a trick!"

Nigel said of the diversity clause: "Goodness gracious me. They want to know about my sexuality. What? I'm going to keep that very private.

"They want to know my ethnicity. There's my answer, it's a big no. Go to hell."


Nigel showed the camera the form, in which he had penned a large "NO!" on the paperwork, before walking away from the camera.

This follows Nigel's latest clash with the BBC, after presenter Geeta Guru-Murthy branded his speech at the Reform UK conference in Dover "inflammatory".

Sharing his reaction on GB News, Nigel said of the BBC's "mask slip" incident: "All she did was just expose the sheer prejudice and bias that exists within the BBC.

"What was interesting was I've never seen the BBC in my life apologise that quickly. But remember last year, they fought me for five days over the debunking route, but I battered them and battered them and in the end they had to give in.

"So they realised, I can be a very nice friend, but I tell you what, Camilla, I'm a horrid enemy indeed."

Shortly after Guru-Murthy's remarks were made about the "inflammatory" language, she apologised and said her actions "didn't meet the BBC's editorial standards on impartiality".
