Fans 'refusing to watch' I'm A Celebrity as Nigel Farage confirmed in 2023 line-up
| Last updated
We’ve got the line-up and we’re ready to go. There’s just a week and a bit to go.
And then it’s time for I’m A Celebrity, baby. Except apparently not. A whole load of people have decided they won’t be watching it this year, all thanks to one controversial contestant.
The Grinch who stole Christmas, the politician who stole I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! You’d be forgiven for relating the two.
With the show starting next Sunday (19 November), this year will see the likes of Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn, champion boxer Tony Bellew, JLS singer Martin Humes and First Dates star Fred Sirieix entering the jungle.
Yep, in case you hadn’t heard yet, the former UKIP and Brexit Party leader is taking part in I’m A Celebrity.
It’s not exactly wild to speculate that Farage is going to prove controversial as a campmate and it’s not particularly surprising to hear there’s been some uproar about it.
Some fans of the show are literally so fuming about it they’re refusing to watch.
One wrote on X: “This will be the first time in years that I’m not watching I’m a Celeb. I refuse to sit and see Ant & Dec laugh and joke with a man as vile as Nigel Farage.”
Another put: Nigel Farage on #ImACeleb this year? Welp, won’t be watching this year then. Urgh.”
Others even tweeted: “#ImAceleb had Matt Hancock on last time, now they have gone even further and put rancid little grifter Nigel Farage on.
“It's time to cancel this trash.”
One even named him and Jamie-Lynn their ‘nightmare blunt rotation’.
Another slammed: “Stop giving platforms to a**hole politicians like Nigel Farage to make them relatable and likeable to they public when they are disgusting human beings!”
Many said it’s a ‘great line up apart from Farage’.
But some of his fans say he’s ‘living rent free in the lefties heads’.
This year's I’m A Celebrity full ‘leaked’ line-up features Fred Sirieix, Frankie Dettori, Nella Rose, Tony Bellew, Nigel Farage, Josie Gibson, Nick Pickard, Jamie-Lynn Spears, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, Marvin Humes and Grace Dent heading into the jungle.
The show is set to launch on ITV on Sunday 19 November at 9pm.
