When John, who had spent the election marketing campaign following Mr Farage, went downstairs within the resort to make use of the bathroom he noticed a pyramid of champagne glasses put out able to toast his victory.

He posted an image of them on Twitter with the caption: “These champagne glasses may no longer be needed at Nigel Farage’s election party.”

Talking to Division Bell co-host Sam Lister, the Mirror Political Editor stated: “There was obviously loads of tension and the night went on for ages because I think they had to recount the vote several times because it was very tight.

“There was this dining table set up with this small pyramid of champagne glasses ready to toast his victory. And obviously, as an enterprising journalist, I took a picture of the wine glasses with champagne glasses and put it on Twitter [and said] I don’t think these would be needed, which obviously sent the UKIP people mad.

“From then on, they stopped journalists from being able to use the toilets in the hotel as punishment for my crime… Every time someone went to ask to go down to the toilet, they were told by security, ‘You can’t use the toilets because of that c*** John Stevens’.”

The episode additionally sees Sam and John conflict over Labour’s plan to finish tax breaks for personal colleges.
