Nigel Farage is reportedly given a big-money offer to appear in Channel 4's Banged Up.

Nigel Farage has reportedly been offered a big sum to take part in the second series of Channel 4's Banged Up.

In the show, celebrities are put into a simulation of a real prison environment at HMP Shrewsbury, where they spend eight nights locked up with ex-offenders and experience the realities of life inside.

GB News presenter Farage recently described the concept as "very interesting" and The Sun says that producers have now followed it up with an offer to take part.

"Nigel isn't everyone's cup of tea but he's great for ratings," a source told the newspaper.

"He did surprisingly well in the jungle and is keen to do more reality TV. Producers are hoping to get a deal over the line with him soon."

Last year Farage pocketed a reported £1.5m to take part on ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, in which he placed third.
