Nigel Farage's PR team mocked the proposed I'm A Celebrity boycott just an hour ahead of the ITV show's launch this evening.Fans of the programme have been left outraged after it was revealed that the controversial politician is being paid a reported £1.5million for his stint in the jungle.

Over the last few weeks, viewers have threatened to boycott the show after slamming the broadcaster for giving Farage a platform.ITV responded to the backlash, saying in a statement: "I'm A Celebrity has always featured a diverse cast from all areas of public life and has a history of featuring political figures throughout its 20 years on screen.

As with any camp mate, viewers are invited to form their own opinions when the show begins on Sunday."However, Farage's team appear to have been brushing off the boycott, sharing a screengrab of the trending hashtags on X - formerly Twitter - and writing: "Good to see the boycott's going well then..."It comes after fans let rip at Ant and Dec after they posted a photo of themselves with a pair of clocks, one showing Queensland time and the other UK.

They wrote: "Let's get ready to jungle." However, the responses to the post were less than enthusiastic, with one commenting: "Not a chance." While another wrote simply: "Nope."I'm A Celebrity kicked off its 23rd series with a bang this evening as 10 celebrities were launched into the Australian jungle to face their darkest fears - which, for some, included a fellow campmate.
