After spending 23 days in camp, Nigel spoke to Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly about his jungle journey.
Speaking about his journey, Nigel said: 'Because I had time to do it, the next 60th birthday and I'm going to get to an age where I can't do it (the show) anymore. I was very happy that I did it, I tried my best not to show any fear at all, I didn't give you anything.
'I'm not surprised. I'm absolutely thrilled. Not everyone likes the things I've campaigned for, but whatever people think I've gotten into, I've thrown myself into the camp. But if you asked me if I would do it again, I think I probably would!
'There were obviously people with different opinions, but I thought I could convince them that we can respect the right to different opinions. We had good debates, no shouting, no big arguments and I hope they understand.
'The different backgrounds, different ages were a joy. I've learned that I can manage anxiety in ways I didn't even know I could.”
Nigel made his first public appearance with his girlfriend Lauren Ferrari as she greeted the politician on his departure from I'm A Celebrity.
Upon hearing his departure, fans took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to discuss Nigel coming in third place, saying he was 'fantastic' on the show.
Viewers congratulated Nigel, writing: 'Say what you will, Nigel Farage has been a fantastic contestant.

'Our King of the Jungle. Congratulations'
'I was very impressed with Nigel Farage in the jungle. I think he came across as a pretty healthy guy.”
During the terrifying process, Nigel had to stay in the well for a while and was joined by snakes.
Ant explained: 'This is Panic Pit. For every two minutes you stay there, you win a star. Five stars are offered, so that's a total of 10 minutes. But of course you won't be alone there.'
Dec added: “The first three stars are for desserts for camp. The fourth star is for your drink, the fifth star is for your treat.'
When it started, Ant said: 'You've got company now, Nigel.'
Tony and Sam watched as Nigel tried to get them something sweet for dinner.
Sam said, “Oh, it's a snake!”
Halfway through his time, Dec checked in with Nigel and asked, “Are you okay Nigel?”
Nigel replied: 'Yes, thanks, I had a lovely time.'
Towards the end of the final trial of the series, the lights went out, leaving the former UKIP leader in complete darkness.
After earning the star for his drink, Nigel said: “Damn beautiful.”
When time was up, Nigel managed to complete the trial with a full house and earned all five stars.

By winning all five stars in his last challenge, he had enjoyed a starter of tuna sashimi, roast duck and good red wine for the main course, and an apple pie with cream for dessert.
Earlier in the ITV show, Sam and Tony completed separate trials to win starters, mains, drinks and treats.
Tony took part in the first event of the day, Stakeout, and won over the first three starters before their final meal in the jungle.
Ant explained: 'This is 'Stakeout'. You will be tied to the giant slab and you have to stay on it and endure the jungle creatures that will accompany you there.
'Every two minutes that you manage to stay on the board, there is a star up for grabs.'
Dec added: “For starters, the first three stars you win are for you and your other campmates. The fourth is for your drink of choice tonight and the fifth is for a very special treat for yourself.'
As soon as the trial started, Tony shouted, “Why was I chosen for this? This is a joke.'
However, he managed to tackle the bugs and earn all the stars.
Sam took on the second challenge, Bonanza, to win the main course ahead of the other celebrities.

When confronted with the eating test, he was presented with five dishes, the first of which was a witchy dish that he didn't even hesitate to eat.
Next, Sam had to eat a piece of camel toe to win Tony's main course before facing a fisheye and a scorpion.
