Nigel Farage hit again at Piers Morgan after the presenter claimed the BBC General Election debate viewers “hates” him.

The Reform UK chief took half in tonight’s seven-way showdown with different senior political celebration figures together with Tory Penny Mordaunt and Labour deputy chief Angela Rayner.

During the programme, Mr Morgan posted on X: “This audience hates Farage, just as the Question Time audience did last week.

“Remember that he got here third on I’m A Celebrity, shedding to a retired boxer and somebody I’d by no means heard of. His recognition is massively overstated.”

But Mr Farage replied with a dig about the presenter’s TalkTV show moving to YouTube.

The Brexit architect said: “Hi Piers. I’m operating for election. You’re operating a YouTube account.”

It comes after the pair clashed when they both appeared on the panel of last week’s Question Time.

Mr Morgan accused Mr Farage of having “bottled it” after saying he wouldn’t stand within the General Election.

Mr Farage has since introduced he’s returning to guide Reform UK and operating in Clacton in a surprising change of thoughts.

Mr Morgan stated: “You’ve had all year to think about this election. You knew it was coming.”

The ex-Ukip chief replied: ”I’ve a nightly TV present, yours has been shut down. You’re a YouTuber.”
