Steph and Dom from Gogglebox ALMOST had people warming to Nigel Farage last night

The controversial UK politician was interviewed by ‘the posh couple’ on Channel 4. We know.

IN WHAT HAS to be one of the strangest TV mash-ups in years, last night Steph and Dom of Gogglebox invited UKIP leader Nigel Farage to their home, plied him with booze, and grilled him on his life.

The resulting interview was quite a departure from Farage’s debate with Russell Brand on BBC’s Question Time last week, with the controversial politician revealing his biggest regrets (not spending more time with his daughters) and discussing his battle with cancer.

It was a side of the anti-immigration, anti-breastfeeding Farage that viewers had never seen, and some were almost warming to him by the end of it. Almost.

Worryingly, a few people wanted to go for a pint with Farage:

“I imagine a pint with Nigel would be a laugh.”

Most people weren’t fooled though, which may come as a relief to many.

We can’t wait for a sequel. Steph and Dom Meet David Cameron, anyone?
