Nigel Farage has blasted the New Year Honours List in an interview with Paul Ross, saying the establishment hate him.

The former UKIP leader had been widely tipped for an award from the list, but missed out. He told Paul Ross this wasn't surprising to him.

"The establishment absolutely hate me," he said. "In many ways, I'm public enemy number one. 

"So I wasn't expecting an honour, and that's exactly what I got.

"It's fallen into disrepute and it needs a serious rethink."

He also shared his views on the upcoming inauguration of Donald Trump, as well as the possibility of 'Brexit the movie', after news that Warner Brothers is moving to option UKIP donor Arron Banks's memoirs.
