Nigel Farage told talkRADIO he would definitely reject a peerage were one offered to him.

The former UKIP leader spoke to James Whale after a momentous 2016 which saw him lead the Leave campaign to victory in the Brexit referendum before becoming a key confidante of US President-elect Donald Trump.

Despite this success, Farage said he has no plans to go into the House of Lords and intends to maintain an active role in public life, telling James he has "unfinished business. The people have spoken but I see it as my job over the next two or three years to make sure we got what we voted for."

He also said that claims there had been a spike in racism since the vote were a "massive hoax", adding that it was in fact the Brexiteers who had been the victims of attacks.
