The woman who threw a milkshake at Nigel Farage has explained why she did it.

The Reform UK leader was leaving the Moon and Starfish pub in Clacton when the milkshake was splattered all over his suit.

Farage was later seen coated in the yellow drink – believed to be a banana milkshake – as he boarded his campaign bus, no doubt to grab a wet wipe and a change of clothes.

Speaking about the incident, the woman who threw the drink – who said her name was Victoria – explained that it wasn’t a premeditated attack.

Speaking to the BBC, she said she ‘just felt like it’.

“He doesn’t stand for me, he doesn’t represent anything I believe in, or any of the people around here,” she added.

“He doesn’t represent us, he’s not from here.”

One pub-goer nearby told The Sun: “I just went outside for a cigarette and this yellow liquid landed on me.

“There were a few shouts of ‘what the hell’ but not really that much reaction. I just think it’s so stupid, what people will do for a bit of attention.”

Meanwhile, Home Secretary James Cleverly said: “There is no excuse to resort to behaviour like this. We may disagree, but we debate, and then we vote.”

It’s not the first time Farage has been coated in a milkshake while out and about.

Back in 2019, he was covered in a caramel and banana milkshake from Five Guys while in Newcastle.

The man who did it, Paul Crowther, was arrested and charged with common assault over the incident.

He was given a 12-month community order and ordered to pay £350 compensation to cover costs.

Earlier this week, Farage announced that he would be Reform UK’s candidate for the Clacton constituency in the upcoming general election, just days after claiming be wouldn’t run for office.

Speaking in Clacton, Farage said he would spend “a considerable amount of my time with you fighting for those who don’t have their voice”.

He added: “I hope that having a national figure representing this constituency will put Clacton on the map,” said Farage, who is also now Reform UK’s party leader.

“No longer will you be ignored; I hope I can get investment that will bring jobs.

“I will stand up and fight for you… send me to Parliament to be a bloody nuisance.”
