Sandi Toksvig has made her feelings clear on the recent trend for politicians to use reality TV shows for image “rehabilitation”.
On Friday, iNews published a wide-ranging interview with the comedian and TV personality, during which she spoke about her career and how so-called “radical feminists” who hold anti-trans views make her “want to weep”.
Towards the end of the interview, Sandi was asked for her feelings on reality television, insisting she’d “never” want to appear on any of them as a contestant.
She also shared her take on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! inviting Matt Hancock and Nigel Farage to compete, lamenting” “How can we find these men eating testicles amusing? After all that they’ve done? It’s nauseating.”
And Sandi isn’t the only one unhappy to see the former UKIP leader in the jungle.
When he first landed in Australia ahead of the new series, his involvement sparked a widespread backlash on social media, with many sharing their plans to boycott the show completely.
Since then, it’s been revealed that this year’s I’m A Celebrity has already seen a dip in viewing figures, with the launch show being the least-watched since the show began more than 20 years ago.
During his time in the jungle, Farage has also been challenged about his political history by fellow campmates Fred Sireix and Nella Rose.
Josie Gibson also wasted no time in taking a pop at Farage when they first met, joking that their time on I’m A Celebrity “can’t be worse than Brexit”.
