It's not been a good day for Britain First... and it's got even worse thanks to Jayda Fransen's no-show on talkRADIO.

Fransen, who shot to worldwide notoriety this week after her tweets were shared by Donald Trump, spoke to our reporter Alex Dibble earlier this week and had been due to take part in a full debate with Julia Hartley-Brewer at 11.30 this morning.

But she mysteriously stopped answering her phone moments before the interview, meaning she was spared a grilling.

The day had begun badly for Fransen's far-right party, with our sister newspaper The Times publishing allegations that leader Paul Golding had committing sexual assault, which he denies.

Following Fransen's withdrawal from her talkRADIO interview, critics have taken another opportunity to lay into her and her party, slamming her for "bottling" the interview.

Some suggested she simply lacked the courage for the fight, and others suggested they now have even less respect for Fransen and Britain First.
