Arron Banks, founder of the Leave.EU campaign and a major Ukip donor, has revealed that he and Nigel Farage went "skinny-dipping" ahead of the party's annual conference in Bournemouth this week.

Speaking on the BBC Radio 4's Any Questions, Banks said:

I can tell you [Farage]'s not coming back. I can tell you he's demob happy because we had dinner last night, we had a few drinks.  It was late at night and we went skinny dipping of Bournemouth Pier. If ever a man is about to leave British politics...

According to the BBC's Chris Mason, Labour's Angela Eagle then interjected...

Oh, what a terrible image...

But Banks continued:

Nigel actually said to me: 'Let's go for a paddle.' I said: 'Come on, man up, let's just go for a swim and strip down.'

To which Eagle responded:

There should be a law against it.

And it turns out she's not the only one wishing there were some sort of legal consequences for the incident:

People are quite angry with the BBC for allowing such awful imagery to be broadcast:

But this is the reality of post-Brexit Britain...

It's probably ruined a few weekends...
