I’m A Celebrity: Nigel Farage opens up on ‘Brexit’ plane crash that nearly killed him

The reality series returns with a new crop of celebrities and dramatic challenges

The highly anticipated return of the reality series, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, has captivated viewers once again. With its third episode airing on Sunday night, the 2023 season promises a mix of arguments, emotional upheaval, and electrifying challenges. Among the stars entering the Australian outback in the hopes of being crowned King or Queen of the Jungle is former Ukip and Brexit party MEP Nigel Farage. Farage, known for his controversial political career, joins a diverse lineup including This Morning’s Josie Gibson, Jamie Lynn Spears, and YouTuber Nella Rose.

Surviving a Plane Crash:

During Tuesday’s episode, Nigel Farage opened up about a harrowing experience that has left a lasting impact on his life. Farage revealed that he survived a plane crash in which he was the passenger in a two-seater light aircraft towing a Ukip campaign banner. The crash resulted in physical injuries that prevent him from participating in certain Bushtucker Trials in the series. This revelation adds a unique perspective to Farage’s time in the jungle, as he navigates the challenges without the full use of his physical abilities.

Tensions Rise in the Camp:

The jungle is no stranger to heated moments, and this season is no exception. YouTuber Nella Rose found herself at odds with First Dates star Fred Sirieix during Tuesday’s episode. Nella accused Fred of treating her like a “little girl” and making comments that insinuated he was old enough to be her father. This confrontation was particularly emotional for Nella, as she lost her own father in 2016. The clash of personalities and emotional baggage adds an extra layer of intensity to the already challenging environment of the jungle.

Challenges and Triumphs:

The Bushtucker Trials, a staple of the show, continue to push the celebrities to their limits. Nella Rose became the first campmate to scream “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” during Tuesday’s trial. The trial involved crawling through a claustrophobic underground tunnel filled with cockroaches while being repeatedly electrocuted. Nella’s decision to opt-out highlights the psychological and physical toll these trials can take on the contestants. On Wednesday night’s episode, Jamie Lynn Spears, who has been struggling with homesickness, will face the “Climb of Cruelty” trial after being voted by the public. This trial will test her determination and resilience in the face of her personal struggles.


As I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues to captivate audiences, the mix of personalities, challenges, and emotional baggage creates a compelling narrative. Nigel Farage’s survival story adds a unique perspective to his time in the jungle, while tensions between campmates provide dramatic moments. The Bushtucker Trials continue to push the celebrities to their limits, showcasing their determination and resilience. As the season progresses, viewers can expect more thrilling moments and unexpected twists, making I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! a must-watch reality series.
