Nigel Farage had yet another memorable TV moment this morning when he threw a tantrum on The Andrew Marr Show after being asked about his most controversial views.

Trying to get some clarity on what Farage's Brexit Party actually stands for, Marr questioned him on some of his previous statements about his admiration for Putin, his desire to roll back gun controls in the UK, and banning people who are HIV positive from entering the country.

In response, Farage went off on a bizarre rant about the BBC, saying:

Here we are with one of the biggest changes in politics that's ever occurred and you're not even interested.

What is wrong with the BBC? What is wrong with the BBC?

He continued:

I've been going round the country speaking at packed rallies every night and do you know who's not there?

The BBC, and from this line of questioning now I can see why. You're just not interested, are you? You are just not interested.

As Marr continued to ask him about his comments regarding people with HIV, Farage said:

This is absolutely ludicrous. I've never in my life seen a more ridiculous interview than this.

Many have pointed out the irony of Farage claiming the BBC is biased, given this was his second appearance on a major political show this week, after being a panellist on Question Time on Thursday.

Especially considering Have I Got News For You was cancelled on Friday because it featured Change UK leader Heidi Allen.

Other viewers, including MPs David Lammy and John McDonnell, saw Farage's meltdown as a sign that he cannot be trusted to be a part of British politics.

Meanwhile, Farage has since claimed that 'we are not just fighting the political class, but the BBC too.'
