Kaye Adams had to alert Loose Women viewers to an unexpected hiccup when guest Nigel Farage was late for his segment on the popular ITV show.

The British politician and I'm A Celeb alumnus was slated to join the programme on Friday (June 28), but he was nowhere to be found at the appointed time.

Kaye informed the studio audience and those watching from home that Nigel had not yet arrived, revealing he wasn't "in the building".

To keep the show running smoothly, she swiftly moved the conversation to Dame Kelly Holmes' recent coming out and the significance of Pride.

Joining Kaye on the panel were Gloria Hunniford and Jane Moore. However, viewers were keen to see the Reform UK leader and took to Twitter to express their anticipation. One viewer implored, "Bring Nigel on ffs," reports the Mirror.

Another wrote: "The leader of @reformparty_uk is due on @loosewomenthis afternoon. @kayeadams says he's not currently there. Will @Nigel_Farage show up?"

Eventually, to the relief of the Loose Women team and the audience, Nigel did make his appearance. Upon sitting down, he was immediately put in the hot seat to discuss the forthcoming UK election.

Kaye Adams grilled Nigel Farage on Loose Women about alleged homophobic and racist remarks made by a Reform UK member, which were captured by an undercover Channel 4 journalist during the campaign for Farage to become Clacton's MP. Despite condemning the offensive language and behaviour, Farage argued that the individual responsible for the slurs was actually an "actor".

He explained to the panel: "I saw the footage last night and thought no one speaks like that. It was just stream after steam, no one speaks like that."

Farage further revealed: "It turns out, he is an actor, I found his website. He's a well spoken actor and he does something called rough speaking."

However, his explanation was cut short as Kaye and Jane Moore expressed their astonishment at the idea of an actor being hired to utter such comments.

As the interview unfolded into disarray on screen, viewers flocked to social media to express their opinions, with some branding the segment a "car crash". One viewer commented: "Nigel Farage with an absolute car crash of an interview on #LooseWomen and Dame Kelly absolutely looks furious he's on."

Another remarked: "ITV desperately trying to get something on Nigel Farage. Constantly interrupting him, they are that desperate they're quoting his teacher from 1981. Embarrassing. Only reason I'm watching #LooseWomen is because of his interview."
