Bolton, speaking exclusively to Westmonster, claimed that the recent media attention regarding his private life was an attempt by left-wing opposition to damage his party.

On his interaction with Jo Marney, Bolton said: “It’s a serious relationship.”

When asked if his marriage was over he said: “Yes. My marriage has been in a difficult situation for a number of years. Let’s be very clear about this – before the relationship with Jo we had serious problems in the marriage and I had already told her that as far as I was concerned I had had enough.

“I’m still a man of integrity, I’m following my heart.”

He added: “The reports are an infringement into our private lives. It’s an attempt by the left-wing media in particular to try to attack the party through me. It’s not worked.

“I have no doubt I’m going to come out of this, and Jo and I are going to come out of this as a couple, stronger than we went into it.

“It’s been a battering experience but that’s what you get if you go into politics.”

He confirmed he has no plans to stand down and addressed UKIP members directly by saying: “I’m exactly the same person you elected as Leader. My private life has changed, that’s been a long time in the mix. I’m absolutely 100% dedicated to sticking with the agenda I have created and driving it forward.”
