Controversial former UKIP leader Nigel Farage is among the guests on the new series of Piers Morgan's Life Stories starting in February

Piers Morgan will interview Brexit crusader and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage in the new series of Life Stories.

Piers said: “There is no more polarising, talked about or fascinating character in British politics than Nigel Farage, so I am delighted he has agreed to launch the new series. Love him or hate him, he’s never boring and he’s promised to answer any questions I throw at him.”

He added: “I am expecting a very lively, news-making encounter, with no prisoners taken on either side. interviewing one of the most talked about political leaders of his generation…”

Farage will talk about his numerous brushes with death including the road traffic accident at 21, his battle with testicular cancer a year later, and surviving a horrific plane crash in 2010.

Piers will also grill Nigel about his two marriages, his close friendship with Donald Trump, and how his life has changed since achieving his ultimate goal in the 2016 EU referendum, and stepping down as leader of UKIP.

Piers will also interview the last surviving Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, flamboyant pop star Boy George and actor Nigel Havers in the new series.

He said: “Barry Gibb is one of the greatest singer-songwriters this country has ever produced, Boy George is the most colourful and outrageous pop star we’ve ever produced, and Nigel Havers is the most charming actor we’ve ever produced. So they should all be wonderfully entertaining and revealing shows.”
