I’m A Celeb fans stunned after realising Nigel Farage is the same age as Brad Pitt

I’m A Celeb fans stunned after realising Nigel Farage is the same age as Brad Pitt

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans were shocked to discover that Nigel Farage and Brad Pitt are the same age.

In news I'm sure nobody expected to hear today, it has emerged that Nigel Farage is the same age as Brad Pitt - and viewers are shocked.

The former politician has proved the be this year's 'most controversial' addition to I'm A Celeb, which formerly belonged Matt Hancock last year.

And Farage has certainly been getting in plenty of screentime, as Wednesday’s episode of the ITV show saw influencer Nella Rose accuse him of wanting people like her 'gone' from the UK.

The YouTube star - who's been in the spotlight due to her 'disrespectful' comment row with Fred Sirieix - spoke to Farage about the remarks he has made in the past about reducing immigration numbers.

Rose said to Farage that 'apparently you’re anti-immigrants', asking him: "Why don’t black people like you?"

Farage replied: “You’d be amazed, they do,” to which Rose replied: “So everyone hates you for no reason?”

The GB News presenter then said: “You can disagree with somebody, but to chuck around accusations the way they’ve been chucked around is grossly unfair.

“Anti-immigrant, right? No, no, all I’ve said is we cannot go on with the numbers coming to Britain that are coming.”

Rose pressed Farage on the 'problem' of immigration because 'I’m one of those numbers' – to which he said the pressure of the number of people was affecting GP appointments.

She told the former politician: “I’m stopping you getting a GP appointment? You’re not getting an appointment because the NHS is lacking funding.

“I bet you anything if every single immigrant or from immigrant descent was to leave the UK, all your doctors gone, most of your doctors are Asian right? Most of your nurses are African women, right?

“You want us gone, that’s all I understood.”

Farage said Rose was not listening to him, before adding: “We can agree to disagree.”

While the heated exchange was going on, viewers took to social media to somehow combine Farage's controversial opinions over Brexit with the stark physical difference he has to Hollywood star Brad Pitt.

After learning that both Pitt and Farage are 59, one person tweeted: "He is the same age as Brad Pitt ... hate must age you..."

Another person said: "I almost dropped my bacon sandwich when I found out. I swear, he’s genuinely younger than Brad Pitt. Here he is at the same age as Nige…"

While someone else thought: "Jacob Rees Mogg is younger than Kylie Minogue, Nigel Farage and Brad Pitt are the same age, as are Katie Hopkins and David Beckham. You can see a pattern emerging here."

Rose and Farage are currently settling into jungle life alongside their campmates Fred Sirieix, Marvin Humes, Josie Gibson, Nick Pickard, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, Jamie Lynn Spears and Grace Dent.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is back this evening at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
