Holly Valance raves about Nigel Farage: ‘Exactly what we all wanted’

Former Neighbors actress and pop star Holly Valance has enthusiastically pledged her support for controversial British politician Nigel Farage in a new interview.

Pro-Brexit activist Farage announced this week that he will lead the right-wing Reform Party as its candidate in Britain’s July 4 general election.

Asked for her reaction to Farage’s announcement, a beaming Valance said that “this is exactly what we all wanted. She gave the people what they asked for. Right move.”

Farage’s decision to stand for election was a sudden U-turn, admitting on Monday that he had “changed his mind” about his political future.

Asked if she had anything to do with it, Valance said that she “had been whispering in his ear for a long time, saying ‘Come on, stick your finger out, give the people what they want’.”

The couple’s association was first made public in 2022, when Farage posted a photo of his “big dinner” at former US President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate, with Valance and her husband Nick Candy in tow.

Valance largely retired from the entertainment industry after marrying billionaire real estate developer Candy in 2012. The couple has since had two children together.

Valance described himself as a “paid member” of the Reform party, which was founded in 2018 and operates under the Trumpian slogan “Make Britain Great”.

“WE WANT TO FIND OUR COUNTRY AGAIN!” is one of the slogans of the anti-immigration party.

“I think it’s really important to go and listen to everyone and educate yourself from all sides, and see who you feel like your morals and values ​​are closest to. For me it’s Reform, it has been for a while, so I’m going for it. I am a paid member,” Valance said GB News.

Asked whether he would campaign for Farage in the election, Valance said: “Ooh. If he asked me, probably. Does anyone want to see me knock on his door? Maybe 20 years ago.”

Valance also revealed she is a long-time fan of former UKIP leader Farage.

“I remember when I first arrived [to the UK] 15 years ago, everyone was saying, “This guy is a right-wing nut.” You didn’t want to say that you supported him or that you liked him. I couldn’t understand it, because the UKIP manifesto was incredible and I agreed with pretty much everything,” he enthused.

When asked how he rated the 60-year-old I’m a celebrity… get me out of here! Of contestant Farage’s suitability to lead, Valance said: “I think he looks good actually. He looks really healthy and doing really well. If anyone can do it, it’s this guy.”

Valance’s outspoken right-wing views appear to have caused some embarrassment in his family, with his younger sister – and her partner Neighborhood star – Olympia decided to distance herself from her brother’s views in a radio interview last month.

Claiming that Holly “rarely” returned to Australia, she emphatically told HIT WA’s Allan & Carly: “My sister and I have very, very different political views.”

“She has the right to say the things she wants to say… but yes, that’s not the case My opinion on anything,” he said.

His comments came after Holly made headlines with an appearance on the GB News podcast in March in which she labeled climate activist Gretha Thunberg a “demonic little gremlin” and complained that ” revival stuff has really gotten big” in his home country of Australia.
