Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage is to present his own nightly radio show from next week.

In news likely to interfere with his prospects of becoming the UK's ambassador to Washington, Farage will present an hour-long show from Monday to Thursday on talk radio station LBC.

The former Ukip leader - who stood down last summer professing a desire to get his life back - will take to the airwaves just weeks before his ally Donald Trump is inaugurated as US President.

Alongside his other commitments, Farage is still serving as a Ukip MEP, representing the South East of England.

James Rea, LBC’s managing editor, said: “With Brexit and the inauguration of President-elect Trump, Nigel Farage is the man at the centre of the two biggest stories this year.

"He is a powerful communicator and has proved himself as a natural broadcaster. With his new nightly show, we look forward to him joining the LBC team next week.”
