Nigel Farage appeared on Have I Got News For You Friday Night, and, rather predictably, the panel were quick to tear into the Ukip leader.
Farage featured on Paul Merton’s team for the episode of the much-loved show, hosted by actor and comedian Stephen Mangan.
His fellow guests didn't just pick up on the right-wing politicians expenses scandal – or his affair allegations – oh no, Farage also had to tensely grin through being called "swivel-eyed" by Ian Hislop and play a jovial game of "fruitcake or loony?"
To clarify, Farage was forced to categorise various Ukip members as either a "fruitcake" or "loony" – a tricky task.
The Ukip leader was also fondly called was called "Mr Kettle" by Hislop after describing Maria Miller’s resignation this week as "good riddance."
Farage also faced catcalls by the studio audience after host Mangan reminded them: "Nigel Farage. The same Nigel Farage who in 2009 revealed that as an MEP he’d claimed in expenses £2million of taxpayers’ money."
Many viewers took to Twitter to voice their own thoughts on the politician's appearance:
