Russia’s state-owned broadcaster RT has offered former UKIP leader Nigel Farage his own television show, according to The Daily Telegraph.
RT, formerly known as Russia Today, wants Farage to help spearhead a programming revamp ahead of the US presidential election in November.
The company has also approached Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins to present a lifestyle programme, The Telegraph revealed.
RT was not immediately available for comment.
He told The Telegraph he had not agreed to front an RT programme, adding: “I’ve appeared on RT occasionally. They are a broadcaster with an audience. They may well have a political agenda, but you can’t ignore them.”
