I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! viewers got more than they bargained for after seeing Nigel Farage in hotpants.
On the latest episode of the reality series, the four remaining campmates were ecstatic to find out they were going to compete in the beloved Celebrity Cyclone.
But, as always, those participating were required to dress like a superhero and settle on a out-of-this-world name to give them an extra boost of confidence before tackling the challenge.
The former politician decided he would now be known as the Disruptor because he had ‘spent my whole life disrupting things’.
While retired boxer Tony Bellew dubbed himself Teddy T, Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson went for Super-Merf.
Meanwhile This Morning’s Josie Gibson went for Finger Slinger.

Before they hit the course, the four famous faces had to suit up, which included donning capes…and some very tight hot pants.
Tony was mortified by what he had to wear and declared he’d now have to look for property Down Under amid concerns he’d not be able to return home from the shame of wearing such tight shorts.
However, Nigel didn’t seem to be too fussed about the outfit, but when Josie saw it close-up, she didn’t quite know where to look and did her best to avert her attention.
As she put it: ‘It feels like you’ve just walked in on your dad wearing your mum’s underwear.’
Even hosts Ant and Dec issued a ‘public safety warning’ to everyone watching on, saying that they should probably look away from the three men on screen if they had a ‘nut allergy’.

But it was already too late for some though, who were taken aback seeing a former politician so dressed down.
‘Nigel Farage in skimpy green hotpants is not an image I needed on a Saturday night,’ one viewer posted on X, formerly Twitter.
‘I can’t unsee Nigel Farage in green spangly disco hotpants,’ someone else shared.
Another added: ‘Omg Nigel put some underwear under the hotpants! It’s about popping out!’
One person joked they were ‘mentally traumatised’ by the sight.
Following the completion of the challenge, Sam said it was the ‘best thing I’ve ever done in my life’.

‘It was everything I could have dreamed of. It’s made my year.’
Josie then joked and said she was taken aback by how hard the balls being thrown at them hit, while Nigel asked for the jets to be started up again.
‘Can we do it again, please? I loved it. I thought it was absolutely brilliant. I was holding on for dear life. Enormous fun.’
After the cyclone, the group then enjoyed a soft serve together before it was time for the final elimination, with Josie then being sent home by the public vote.
I’m A Celebrity concludes with the finale tomorrow at 9pm on ITV1.
