Nigel Farage is first to land in Australia for I’m a Celeb
Nigel Farage is expected to set a new record during his reported stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
While ITV has yet to officially confirm this year’s lineup, the former politician and Leader of the UK Independence Party is rumoured to be joining as a campmate.
On Sunday, Nigel, 59, was spotted in Brisbane Airport, further cementing speculation that he will be heading into the Australian jungle later this week.
Speaking to the press shortly after landing in the country, he stated: “I’m just here surfing for the week. I can’t confirm I am doing it [I’m A Celebrity] but I might be.”
Following the reveal of the rumoured lineup, Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said Nigel will have a “tough time” on the show.

He said: “We’re expecting Nigel Farage to have a tough time of things Down Under; we wouldn’t be surprised to see him set a new record for amount of Bushtucker Trials faced.”
At the time of writing, the odds of the 59-year-old setting a new record for the most Bushtucker Trails faced is 1/2.
Currently, Strictly Come Dancing star Adam Thomas holds the record for the most challenges completed. On season 16 of the show, he competed in a phenomenal 12 Bucktucker trails.
Elsewhere, the bookies have provided betting odds on the twelve rumoured I’m A Celeb… 2023 contestants.
Ladbrokes say that Masterchef critic Grace Dent is the least likely celebrity to be crowned Queen of the Jungle as her winning odds currently sit at 33/1.
