Nigel Farage lawyers' furious letter to ITV over his naked shower

EXCLUSIVE: Nigel Farage lawyers’ furious letter to ITV over his naked shower

Nigel Farage’s team fired off a legal letter to ITV bosses for showing him naked in the I’m A Celebrity jungle shower.

His furious aides claim there is an ‘indecency’ clause in his contract which bans the channel from showing footage of him nude.

But after scenes on Monday night’s show, when Mr Farage’s bottom was seen by millions of viewers, his lawyer claimed the agreement had been broken.

Three days later, more scenes of the Brexit Party founder – who is being paid £1.5 million to take part on the show – were shown of him naked in the bath.

ITV last night confirmed receiving the complaint but insist there is nothing in Mr Farage’s contract that forbids them from showing him naked. It is understood they are yet to reply to his team.

Friends of the politician believe the images have ‘worked wonders’ for his public profile, while others have credited his naked moments for stopping I’m A Celebrity becoming a ‘snoozefest’.

A source close to Mr Farage, 59, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The legal team were not exactly over the moon about the naked scenes being shown. It simply broke the clause in the contract.

‘Nigel will be surprised at the incredible reaction to it when he comes out because, as always, he is just being himself in the jungle. Who knows – maybe he could even do a calendar next year.’

Sorry Nigel, it’s not a pint of your usual!

His naked scenes have ensured that, along with influencer Nella Rose, 26, he is the most talked about contestant of this year’s series.

Friends of his are furious with Lorraine Kelly for her comments about him being naked in the shower. Speaking on her ITV morning show last week, she described the image as ‘traumatising’. One said: ‘Imagine if Nigel had said that about Lorraine. It doesn’t bear thinking about.’ A post from Mr Farage’s official X account, being managed by his staff, said on Friday: ‘Has Lorraine apologised for bodyshaming Nigel Farage yet?’

Both ITV and the spokesman for Mr Farage declined to comment.

Mr Farage, who makes no secret of his love for a pint, went up against boxer Tony Bellew last night in the Down Your Sorrows Bushtucker Trial where he had to neck a disgusting drink.
