Fred Sirieix confronts Nigel Farage over ‘shameful’ Brexit poster
The return of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is upon us.
The reality series returned to screens on Sunday night (19 November), with the second episode of the 2023 season bringing political drama and emotional upheaval.
Viewers are getting to know the new crop of celebrities decamping to the Australian outback in the hopes of being crowned this year’s King or Queen of the Jungle.
All eyes will undoubtedly be on former Ukip and Brexit party MEP Nigel Farage who, following in the footsteps of disgraced politician Matt Hancock last year, is among the stars who have entered the jungle. The controversial politician is joined by This Morning’s Josie Gibson, Jamie Lynn Spears, and YouTuber Nella Rose. You can find the full line-up of 2023 campmates here.
It is no surprise that the politician-turned-GB News presenter was voted by the public to take part in the first disgusting eating trial of the series. Last night, he was served a “Margar-teat-a” – a pizza topped with a camel udder, a sheep udder and the teat of cow served on a layer of creamy cheese. He ate another pizza with four types of animal penis and a pig’s anus.
Meanwhile, Jamie Lynn Spears opened up about her last conversation with her sister Britney Spears before she left for the jungle, stating that “every family fights” but she and her sister “love each other”.
It was only inevitable that political debate reared its head in the series, and it was kicked off by First Dates star Fred Sirieix, who told Farage that his pro-Brexit campaign as the leader of the Ukip party was “shameful”.
On tonight’s episode, YouTube star Nella Rose will face the next Bushtucker Trial named “No Time to Cry” after the public voted for her. She will be sent on a secret mission to find stars in an underground lair.
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs Sunday to Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 9.30pm on ITV.
Nella is up for the second Bushtucker Trial….
Meanwhile, Nigel Farage says he’s upset that the public hasn’t voted for him because he ‘wants’ to partake in the grisly Bushtucker Trials. Plus, as he adds: “[The Bushtucker Trials take up] 25 per cent of the air time.”
Someone’s clearly got a PR campaign in mind…

Nella accuses Fred of treating her like a ‘little girl’ as argument between pair escalates
First Dates star Fred Sirieix, 51, has upset YouTuber Nella Rose, 26, after saying that he is old enough to be her dad.
In the Bush Telegraph, Nella explained: “Last night after dinner Fred made a comment about him basically how he could be my dad. I took offence to that because one of the first conversations we had together was me opening up about the fact that my dad’s passed away.”
She continued: “I didn’t say anything about it last night because I was kind of just annoyed about it. So I slept on it and I kind of thought about it and I was just like, this is not the kind of person I want to be around.”
Nella decides to ignore Fred during breakfast to make a point, before asking him to ‘leave’ her alone.
Fred realised he had upset Nella and asked her what he had done.
Nella explained he’d made a comment the day before, saying: “You know that my mum’s dead, and you know that my dad’s dead. You know that, right? I’ve come to find out that every time I wanna get creative around the fire, or I want to have something my way, my own food that I am entitled to, my way, you tend to get an attitude, right?”
Fred replied: “I am so sorry. Can I just say? First of all, I am sorry I’ve offended you. I am unaware that you felt offended. I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26.”
Nella said back: “I’m not stupid, you’re not going to little girl me, you’re not.”
Nella said she had accepted his apology but concluded that the pair should not be friends.

I’m a Celeb lost another million viewers in Monday’s second episode
The launch episode of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! lost a staggering two million viewers on last year.
Now, it seems that the show is losing even more viewers. According to viewing figures for Monday night’s second episode with an average, there was an average of 6.1 million viewers tuning in, which is almost one million lower than Sunday’s launch episode. It is standard for the show to experience a drop in viewers after its launch episode – but does this mean “#BoycottImACelebrity” is having an impact on viewing figures?
