I WANNA BE A UKIP MEP .......MAYBE
How we laughed when told that Mike Read - former BBC DJ and TV presenter - had been approached about standing as an MEP candidate in the Eastern Region!
Nigel is so desparate for a celeb to stand. Unfortunately, UKIP can't attract any big names and so they had to resort to the Z-list!
Mr Read used to be a children's TV presenter in the 80's. He also presented shows for Radio One before getting the push in 1991.
His TV career quickly fizzled out in the 80's, although he did try to revive it by appearing on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!. Sadly, his stay was short-lived — he was the first 'celebrity' to be evicted by the viewing public!
Another joke candidate for a joke party!
