In scenes set to air on Monday night, the former UKIP and Brexit party leader and TikTok sensation Nella Rose were invited to sit at a table for two in the first Bushtuccker trial, which was voted for by members of the public.
Gagging as he ate the body parts which were artfully topped upon a slice of pizza, presenters Ant and Dec mercilessly mocked the controversial figure.
‘It’s a bit bloody tough,’ he said, forcing it into his mouth ‘Did you prepare this yourself guys?’
Ant and Dec said they hadn’t and Dec teased him by saying: ‘It does look quite moist quite creamy.’
From Brexit to exit? Nigel Farage gagged as he tucked into a sheep’s udder and cow’s teet during his first Bushtucker trial on I’m A Celebrity… in scenes which are set to air on ITV1 on Monday night
Nella could be heard shouting: ‘Oh Farage, Farage! Boys, do you have to describe it in front of him while he is eating?’
It comes as no surprise that Farage has been selected to take on the first trial, because his signing caused viewers to switch off in their millions after it emerged he has received a reported £1.5million to appear – the biggest I’m A Celeb pay cheque ever.
Sunday night’s show launched with a peak audience of 7.8 million (average 7 million), down 2.2million from the show’s launch the year before.
In 2022, the I’m A Celebrity… launch got an audience of over 10 million people at its peak – up two million from the previous year.
That was despite former health secretary, Matt Hancock being paid £400k to join the line-up, donating 3% of that fee to charity.

Controversial: Former health secretary, Matt Hancock starred in the 2022 series, and was paid £400k to join the line-up, donating 3% of that fee to charity
Last week, fans threatened to boycott the new ITV series over their ‘tone-deaf’ decision to let Farage enter the jungle.
The signing of the GB News star has proved controversial as Nigel is a famously divisive figure, who is known for his right-wing views on immigration and gender pay gaps.
Nearly 10,000 people have been using the hashtag ‘Boycott I’m A Celeb’.
Taking to X, social media users plead their case as to why they were taking action against the show.
One user wrote: ‘ITV notoriously choose the most heinous politicians. They secure these guests by promising to show ‘another side’ to them.
Boycott: Fans are less than happy with Farage taking part, with nearly 10,000 people using the hashtag ‘Boycott I’m A Celeb’ in the past 24 hours
Having their say: Before he entered camp Farage shared a throwback clip of I’m A Celeb hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly giving their opinion on the politician joining the lineup
All set: It comes after Nigel insisted he’s ready for whatever the jungle throws at him
‘There are no other sides to sc**bags like Matt Hancock & Nigel Farage & attempts to rehabilitate them for the nation is propaganda. #BoycottImACeleb’.
‘Hancock was bad enough but I can’t even look at Farage. Do itv realise how many viewers they will lose with this decision? #BoycottImACeleb’, a second wrote.
A third user added: @ITV @antanddec @DecsMcpartlin I boycotted @imacelebrity when you put @MattHancock on your show. Now the odious @Nigel_Farage.
‘I’m livid that you give these people a voice, a platform and way to be seen. I can’t, I’m livid spitting feathers. #BoycottITV #Boycottimaceleb’.
A fourth expressed: ‘I wrote to @itv to complain about Farage going on #BoycottImACeleb . Have received a really pathetic, standard response from their team.
‘Please continue to email them. They need to understand quite how many people are totally p*ssed off with them.’
An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline about Sunday night’s show: ‘I’m A Celebrity received ITV’s highest overnight audience of the year and the biggest entertainment launch across any channel.’
The launch comes after Farage shared a throwback clip of I’m A Celebrity hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly giving their opinion on the possibility of the politician joining the lineup.
There has been much criticism lobbied at ITV for choosing to cast him and several petitions have been launched to get him removed, with others boycotting the show in protest.
I’m A Celeb’s hosts Ant and Dec have not commented on the lineup so far, but Nigel took to his Twitter on Tuesday to share an unearthed video of the duo discussing him being on the show.
Possible clashes: Nigel has been joined by an assortment of pop stars, actors and social media influencers in the jungle
Last year, the Geordies often joined livestreams with fans after the shows aired, to chat about the events of the latest episode and answer questions from viewers.
The clip Nigel shared saw one person suggest the politician enters the jungle one year, with And and Dec seeming to give their approval.
The video shows Dec saying: ‘Dan says Nigel Farage,’ with Ant responding: “‘Dan that is a very very good idea. Very good idea.’
Dec chimes in to add: ‘I’d like to see that.’
Alongside the clip, Nigel wrote: ‘Give the people what they want!’ with a pair of eyes emoji.
