Inside Nigel Farage’s romance with French politician Laure Ferrari – and how she branded English women ‘drunken tarts’

NIGEL Farage’s romance with French politician Laure Ferrari has long been the subject of speculation.

The former UKIP leader, 59, has been romantically linked to the 44-year-old French right wing politician since 2017.

Ferrari moved into his £4 million Georgian home in West London and was seen taking the bins out.

At the time Farage dismissed the idea of an affair as “crackers” as he had just announced the separation from his wife of 18 years, Kirsten.

He claimed he was simply helping out a friend who needed somewhere to stay.

The pair met in 2007 when Ms Ferrari was a waitress and she later worked with the Eurosceptic stalwart in the European Parliament.

But Ferrari caused a stir when she claimed “classy” French women were better lovers than their English counterparts as they are “discreet and respectful”.

Ms Ferrari branded English women “drunken tarts” in an explosive email.

The rant said French ladies “can be very discreet and respectful hiding a sincere love affair for 3 years and 6 months . . . not looking for any kind of publicity at all.”

And it claimed British women “can put themselves in embarrassing situations with well-known married men whom they kiss in public”.

The outburst was aimed at “jealous” UKIP aide Annabelle Fuller — a woman publicly accused of sleeping with the married Brexit chief.

Meanwhile, the leaked email even spoke of a three-and-a-half year affair with a mystery married man.

In 2012 Ms Fuller forwarded the email to Mr Farage’s office, claiming it was from Ms Ferrari.

She demanded his team “print out and show to Nigel” after he had allegedly accused Ms Fuller of “lying about her”.

Previously, Ms Fuller was named as Mr Farage’s “former mistress” in a European Parliament speech by ex-UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire back in 2014.

It is currently unclear whether Farage and Ferrari are still together.

But speculation has resurfaced after it was confirmed Farage does indeed have a secret girlfriend.

However, she will not meet him when he leaves I’m A Celebrity, despite it being the tradition for family and loved ones, reports MailOnline.

Sources close to Farage he will be keeping his family and romantic life private while in the jungle.

Farage was also seen slow-dancing with Ferrari on a dimly-lit dancefloor in June 2017.

Filmed at a party celebrating the one year anniversary of the historic Brexit vote, he could be seen grinding up against his French politician lover.

An onlooker said: “There was no question that they were a couple. Laure was putting on quite a display.

“She seemed to twerk a bit and was all over Nigel. From the look on his face, he was loving every minute.”

It came as Mr Farage’s wife said the pair had been living “separate lives” for years and he had moved out of the family home in Kent “a while ago”.

German-born Kirsten Farage revealed the separation after it emerged her husband had been sharing a house in Chelsea with Ms Ferrari.
