Nigel Farage row with campmates ‘will not phase him after death threats’ ITV

Nigel Farage’s girlfriend said his heated debates with campmates Fred Sirieix and Nella Rose in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! will not phase the politician who has experienced decades of death threats in the outside world.

Laure Ferrari appeared on GB News for her first TV interview on Friday to support Farage, who she described as having “the resilience of a million men”.

Ms Ferrari commented on several comments made by Sirieix about Brexit on the ITV show, in which he told former Ukip leader Farage that his 2016 campaign had “destroyed the economy” and branded it “shameful”.

“I am a French person myself and I was like isn’t it a bit rude to come from a different country and lecture the British electorate or the way the British people voted in 2016,” she said.

Ms Ferrari continued: “He’s been dealing with enemies and attacks and jokes for decades, we’re talking about actually serious stuff like death threats or threats on your family members.

“So having an argument with Fred or Nella is really not going to phase him at all, he’ll be fine.”

It comes after Rose previously accused GB news presenter Farage of wanting people like her “gone” from the UK during a conversation about immigration, and the pair later disagreed during a debate about cultural appropriation.

Ms Ferrari said: “I feel sorry for Nella, I think she epitomises that snowflake generation where they are told that they should be offended by every little thing.

“It’s not a good place to be when you’re offended and upset all the time, it’s not really nice.

“I think he has been very gentle with her, but again that’s the sort of man he is. Maybe ITV or people were expecting him to be a bit more punchy and a bit more aggressive but he has lots of patience.

“He understands people and he actually understands this generation very well.”

The French politician added that Farage is “in his element” in the jungle and she predicts he will be in the final.
