Former Ukip leader Nigel described Mr Bolton as a "a guy of achievement and a man of substance".

Mr Bolton is seen as being on the moderate wing of the party in a campaign which was dominated by the presence of Anne Marie Waters, director of Sharia Watch UK and anti-Islam candidate.

Some Ukip MEPs have said they would quit if Ms Waters won the election.

The result came after the party unveiled a new logo - which cost around £2,000 to develop - replacing the pound sign with a lion.

Nigel said: "He got my vote that was no doubt at all".

The dad-of-three, who told KoS last week the party had "a moral goal to deliver Brexit" insisted it needed strong leadership going forward over the coming months and years.

UKIP chairman Paul Oakden told the BBC's Daily Politics he was not anxious the similarities might lead to legal issues: "We did our due diligence before we put these logos to the membership and as I said, we are perfectly comfortable". Bolton reportedly said he was "fine" with the new design.

The party is reported to be in buoyant mood at its Torquay conference, despite the leadership turmoil, as it seeks to capitalise on what it sees as Prime Minister Theresa May's "backsliding" on Brexit.

Mr Farage's successor, Diane James, stepped down in October, just 18 days after being elected.
