Nigel Farage’s girlfriend Laure Ferrari, 44, wears her arm in a sling after a surfing accident as she joins the I’m A Celebrity star’s loved ones to greet evictee Marvin Humes

Nigel Farage’s girlfriend Laure Ferrari has been pictured with her arm in a sling after  suffering a minor injury while surfing.

The 44-year-old appeared to be on the mend after the accident as she joined the I’m A Celebrity stars’ loved ones at their hotel to greet the latest evictee Marvin Humes.

Despite the injury, Laure was in good spirits as she chatted with the other family members and eliminated celebrities, including Frankie Dettori.

Laure arrived at the Marriott Hotel in Surfers Paradise on Sunday and is staying at the luxury hotel while Farage has spent 18 days sleeping on a camping bed eating rice and beans. 

She has not been joining the friends and family cohort that leaves at 5.30am each morning from the Marriott and drives to the jungle in case they are required to greet their loved ones off the bridge after a live elimination.

Instead, Nigel’s 18-year-old daughter Isabelle has been making the trip as she will be officially greeting him and accompanying her father to the hotel.

Since deciding to join Nigel in Australia, Laure has finally spoken about their unconfirmed relationship.

Speaking to the Mail, she said: ‘I really believe Nigel can win. I see it as a duty to support him. When he was invited on to I’m a Celebrity, we talked about it. 

‘I saw it as a massive opportunity for him to shine. He was more thoughtful about it. He consulted his family and friends. It was a team effort that got him to appear.’

When asked about his bare bottom being shown to millions of viewers in the jungle shower, she replied: ‘He’s got a great bottom, what’s wrong with that?’

French right wing politician Laure and Nigel have been linked since 2017 after she moved into his £4 million Georgian home in Chelsea and was seen taking the bins out.

At the time Nigel dismissed the idea of an affair as ‘crackers’ as he had just announced the separation from his wife of 18 years, Kirsten.

Laure, who is 15 years Farage’s junior, met the politician 10 years earlier in 2007 when she was working as a waitress in Strasbourg.

After the exchange with the then 28-year-old, Nigel appointed her as a parliamentary assistant in charge of environmental issues in the UK – her first job in politics.

From there she was made PR director of Nigel’s parliamentary group Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy in 2009 and eventually worked for the French nationalist party.

In 2017 – right when she moved in with Nigel as a ‘lodger’ – she headed up a Eurosceptic think tank which was accused of illegally diverting £400,000 of public money to UKIP – before the UK General Election and Brexit referendum.

Amid these accusations, the pair were seen enjoying a drink at a London pub together locked in conversation before both discreetly exiting a chauffeur-driven Range Rover.

It was reported that ‘Nigel’s attention was only on one woman all night’ but they appeared cautious to be seen together with Nigel continually denying claims of a romantic relationship.

He told the Mail on Sunday: ‘She is someone I have worked with and known for a long time who wanted somewhere to stay for a week that wouldn’t cost her any money.

‘It’s a working relationship. You can inflate it however you want to.’

Laure was living with Nigel at the time because she needed accommodation and had nowhere else to stay – according to the former politician.

It was announced that same month, in February 2017, the father-of-four and his German wife Kristen had been ‘living separate lives’ for years and Nigel had moved out of their family home in Kent.
