Nigel Farage has shared a video of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! hosts Ant and Dec approving of his signing to the ITV staple. The Geordie duo frequently held live video chats with viewers during last year's edition of the show, where they would discuss what had happened around the camp.

It also gave viewers the chance to share their own opinions with regards to future contestants and challenges alike pertaining to I'm A Celeb. And while Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are yet to publicly speak out about Farage teaming up with the show, the former UKIP leader took to social media to share a clip of them seemingly approving of him as a campmate.

Taking to X, Farage wrote: "Give the people what they want!" while sharing a clip of the hosts during one such live chat with fans, tagging the the presenters in the post. The video shows Dec, saying: "Dan says Nigel Farage..." with Ant replying: "Dan that is a very very good idea."

Dec responds: "I'd like to see that," before the theme tune starts playing and the video cuts off. It comes after viewers around the United Kingdom have protested Farage taking to the camp to compete in the show, many of whom saying that they are going to 'boycott' this years edition altogether.

Taking to social media, one wrote: "I grew up watching all of your shows. Now, casting Nigel Farage? Nah. You’re done," while another, added: "Always been the one reality show we watch. Not this year lads."

A third, penned: "Nah mate. The production team have gone too far now," while a fourth, echoed: "Shameful that Farage is on there. Will not be watching this year."

Meanwhile, another I'm a Celeb fan said: "I don't watch this usually but I'm definitely tuning in to watch you. It's going to be fabulous."

Nigel Farage will be the second politician to enter the show in two consecutive seasons, with disgraced former Tory Health Secretary Matt Hancock appearing in 2022's showing - after resigning from his cabinet position for breaching his own Covid-19 rules. The general public would be unforgiving to Hancock, voting him in for numerous bushtucker trials and challenges as the show progressed.

He would ultimately finish third overall, with Sunderland-born footballer Jill Scott taking the title of Queen of the Jungle, while Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner came in second.
