According to the latest polling, Reform are predicted to secure seven seats in the election

Nigel Farage has been hailed as a "breath of fresh air" just hours before voters flock to the ballot box for the General Election.

The Reform UK leader sat down with GB News for an exclusive interview, where he claimed to start a "mass movement" and predicts he will secure "six million votes" at the election.


In the latest polling from Techne, exclusively revealed to GB News, Farage's Reform Party are predicted to secure seven seats, with a suggested vote share of 16 per cent.

In a projected wipeout for the Conservatives, Techne also revealed that the Tories may only secure 82 seats, with Labour garnering over 450.

Reacting to Farage's interview with GB News, an audience member told Patrick Christys that the Reform premier has "brought a spark" to an otherwise "dull election campaign" between Labour and the Conservatives.

He also claimed that Farage is "very appealing to the youngsters", given his surge in popularity with young British voters.

When asked how he felt about Nigel Farage and Reform by host Patrick Christys, the audience voter admitted: "Since he's thrown his hat in the ring, he's been a breath of fresh air.

"Let's face it, it was pretty dull and boring, and I think he's added a spark to the whole political forum now."

Revealing what he likes specifically about Farage after seeing the interview, the voter told GB News that he "really likes" the Reform leader, particularly because of how "straightforward" he is with answering questions.

The voter explained: "What I like about him that I don't actually like about the others is he's straightforward, and he answers the questions.

"He's very appealing, he's got a great personality. And actually I think he really appeals to the youngsters."

He also admitted that his own sons, who are now of voting age, often "speak about Nigel Farage" and may be swayed to vote Reform in Thursday's election.

The audience member continued: "My son is 18 and his peer group, and I've never heard them once talk about politics.

"But now it's their first year being 18 year olds and they can vote, I actually hear them and they do talk about Nigel Farage a lot."

Discussing Nigel Farage's possible impact on the election and the Conservative Party, former Tory minister George Eustice admitted the Reform leader will make a "real impact" in "taking down many Tory MPs".

Joining the GB News panel, Eustice told Patrick Christys: "I've got frustrations with Nigel Farage, and the real impact of him in this election will be to take down dozens of other Conservative MPs.

"People who are contemplating voting for him, I think they do need to think whether that is actually what they want.

"Do they want to wake up with a powerful Labour government with an even bigger majority than it might otherwise get? Or actually, do they want to make sure that there's a Conservative opposition?"
