Due to health issues, Nigel Farage has stated that he will be unable to participate in certain bushtucker trials on the show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!”
The ex-Ukip and Brexit party MEP, now a TV host, is joining the cast of a reality show that begins airing on Sunday.
He informed the Sun that he would be unable to participate in certain activities aimed at discerning if his fellow campers possess food or luxury items, due to health problems stemming from a plane accident.
“I would not be able to participate in any activities related to weightlifting due to my past injuries, including neck reconstructions.” Said Farage.
“They are well aware that my physical structure may have some limitations. However, I am still able to accomplish most tasks.”
On the day of the 2010 general election, the plane that Farage was piloting crashed and he sustained injuries to his back. However, he was able to escape from the wreckage on his own.
After three years, he underwent surgery to address health issues resulting from the accident. During an interview with BBC, he mentioned having a few discs removed and replaced.
The host of GB News, who has ownership stakes in the television network, is believed to be the highest-paid contestant ever, reportedly earning a salary of £1.5 million.
He stated that the trials did not bother him. “I will simply give my best effort. That is all I can do.”
I am skeptical that any of the experiments will result in my death, but I do not anticipate them all to be enjoyable experiences.
“I committed to this, so let’s follow through. Let’s go all in.”
He plans to venture into the Australian jungle one year after the previous health secretary, Matt Hancock, who came in third place in the final. One of the challenges he encountered was having to consume a fish eye and a camel’s penis.
