Nigel Farage is expected to attend the next US presidential debate at the invitation of Donald Trump.

The former UKIP leader, who has been informally advising the Republican candidate, is set to be in the audience at the second election clash next Sunday.

Mr Farage spoke at a rally in Mississippi for the presidential hopeful in August.

He spoke about his role in the successful campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, but stopped short of endorsing Mr Trump for president.

He told the crowd: "I come to you from the UK with a message of hope, and a message of optimism.

"It's a message that says if the little people, if the real people, if the ordinary decent people are prepared to stand up and fight for what they believe in, we can overcome the big banks and the multinationals."

In an interview with CNN, he said: "Don't let her get under your skin. Whatever abuse she throws at you, ignore her. Don't defend yourself. There's no point. There isn't time."

Mr Farage said voters "want change" in the November election.

He said: "I think that Trump is being portrayed in the British press as misogynistic and almost racist, and that's what people haven't liked very much.

"We are exactly 100 days on from the big Brexit vote that happened here in the United Kingdom and the reason Brexit happened was a very large number of people who had not voted in previous elections, or in some cases had never voted in their lives, went out to vote against the establishment.

"I think the appeal that Trump has got in America is to say: 'Look, we have got this stranglehold for the last couple of decades of big banks, big businesses and big politics who may have done well for themselves but they haven't bettered your lives'."
