A Ukip councillor has been expelled for making undisclosed comments that have been described as "jaw-dropping". But will we ever find out what was said?

TL;DR: Maybe in January.

This weekend it emerged that the Ukip councillor who first revealed which seat Nigel Farage was likely to standr at the next election had been expelled from the party entirely for bringing it into disrepute.

Rozanne Duncan had sat on Thanet District Council in Kent, near South Thanet, where Farage is bidding to become an MP.

We understand that she made her comments to a BBC film crew making a documentary about Ukip, but the exact nature of them has not been disclosed, with a party source only telling Kent Online that it had no choice but to expel the councillor.

The BBC refused to confirm to i100.co.uk whether the remarks that saw her thrown out of Ukip would be included in the programme, the name of which has not been disclosed.

We are making a programme about Ukip for BBC2 which is due to air in the new year. Rozanne Duncan is one of a number of people who we’ve spoken to in the course of making the programme but we are not in a position to give any more details at this stage.

So it looks like we'll have to wait until January at least to see what sounds like a must-watch documentary to find out what Duncan said.

She has 28 days to appeal Ukip's decision.
