'Why don't black people like you? Everyone hates you' I'm a Celebrity contestant Nella Rose accuses Nigel Farage of being anti-migrant

Nigel Farage has defended himself against accusations of being "anti-migrant" on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Fellow contestant Nella Rose accused him of wanting people like her “gone” from the UK as she challenged him on remarks he has made about reducing immigration.

As they both stood in the bath area of the camp, Ms Rose asked: “Why don’t black people like you?”

Mr Farage said: “You’d be amazed, they do” to which the Ms Rose replied: “So, everyone hates you for no reason?”

The politician responded: “You can disagree with somebody, but to chuck around accusations the way they’ve been chucked around is grossly unfair.

“All I’ve said is we cannot go on with the numbers coming to Britain that are coming.”

Rose pressed the former UKIP leader on the “problem” of immigration because “I’m one of those numbers” – to which he said the pressure of the number of people was affecting GP appointments.

She told the former politician: “I’m stopping you getting a GP appointment? You’re not getting an appointment because the NHS is lacking funding.

“I bet you anything if every single immigrant or from immigrant descent was to leave the UK, all your doctors gone, most of your doctors are Asian right? Most of your nurses are African women, right?

“You want us gone, that’s all I understood.”

Mr Farage said Rose was not listening to him, before adding: “We can agree to disagree.”

TalkTV's Julia Hartley-Brewer said the clash on the programme was not surprising: "It's so predictable - another uninformed person wanting to make a name for herself, shouting loudly," she said.

"Shouting over Nigel every time he tries to speak. This stuff that's thrown around like 'you're anti immigrant, you're anti black people, black people hate you.

"This is the caricature of anyone who says: I don't think that mass uncontrolled immigration is a good idea.

"Despite the fact that view is the majority view in this country, including, by the way, vast numbers of of recent immigrants and people of colour."
