Farage says he is ‘stronger and fitter than ever’ in first words since UK return

Nigel Farage admitted he felt “stronger and fitter than ever” as he delivered his first words since landing back in Britain after his stint on ITV show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

The 59-year-old made it to the final three on the Australian-based reality TV series, which was eventually won by Sam Thompson.

On Wednesday, Farage – who rose to prominence as the beating heart of Britain’s bid to leave the European Union – touched back down in the UK, ending his time in Australia.

And as he arrived back on British soil, the politician delivered his verdict on exactly what his time was like in the jungle.

Farage says he left I’m a Celeb ‘fitter and stronger’ than ever

Speaking to GB News, Farage said: “Well 23 nights in the jungle and by the end of it I was 20 years older than all the other contestants that were left!

“All I will say is the whole thing was a lot more physical than I would ever have believed. Even ferrying buckets of water up from the pump to the camp. All of that.

“Actually, the truth is, it is the biggest detox I have ever been on. No tea, no coffee, no booze.

“Lots of exercise. So after 23 nights in there, I have left it in many ways fitter and stronger in many ways than I have been since I was in school, so there is a real upside to it.”

Farage’s surge in popularity has sparked rumblings that he could make a return to politics, having previously spent time as both the leader of the Brexit Party and Ukip.

Among those talking up a possible return included Richard Tice, the Reform UK leader who worked with Farage in the Brexit Party.

It has left some uneasy about the impact Farage could have on the current political scene.

During his interview, Farage touched upon the “desperate trouble” the Conservatives were in.

He said: “They’ve no idea what’s coming down the track towards them. And I think the last thing I heard before I went into the jungle was that [David] Cameron was back… if it’s got that bad, they must be in real trouble.

“And I see that he’s just about managed to squeak through a vote on Rwanda.

“But I mean, it’s going to make no difference at all. No, they’re in dire, dire trouble. And all Labour have to do is, frankly, not tear each other apart, and play safe and the election is theirs I think.”

Farage landed back in Britain at Heathrow Airport just hours after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak managed to avoid defeat over his controversial Rwanda Bill.
