TWITTER/GETTY MEP Bill Etheridge’s partner took to the social media site to rage against the politician, calling him a “dirty disgusting cheat”.
Lorraine Chew posted a photo of the half-empty packet of Viagra she found in his car and called him a “liar”.
She wrote to her 109 followers: “Getting out my fiancés car @BillDudleyNorth yesterday I find half a box of viagra dirty disgusting cheat you should be ashamed of yourself.” [sic]
Furious Ms Chew added later: “Yet he wants to be trusted to lead his party?
“He’s nothing but a liar and will do anything to get what he wants even backstab his friends.”
A few days before Ms Chew’s outburst, Mr Etheridge tweeted that he had apologised to his wife.
“I find half a box of viagra dirty disgusting cheat you should be ashamed of yourself”
He wrote: “Apologised in my speech to @mzdior76 yesterday. Wrong to neglect those you love no matter how important a cause. Time to be mature.”
Mr Etheridge, whose policies include bringing back the death penalty and banning the burka, has been enjoying watching Andy Murray compete in Rio while the scandal unfolds.
On Sunday night he tweeted: “Andy Murray take a bow. Wonderful performance.”
Meanwhile his angry lover tweeted: “Apologised then f…d me over again…Hmmm can this man ever tell the truth”. [sic]
She later followed this up saying: “Someone is going to be very sorry.”
Drama unfolded at Ukip’s leadership hustings last night as multiple witnesses said a senior Ukip activist “started screaming and shouting,” Guido Fawkes reports.
The activist was shouting at a rival camp accusing them of re-tweeting the offending public messages.
Ukip HQ then reportedly sent messages to all involved asking them to delete their tweets about the matter because they want “a fair and decent fight”.
Ukip approved parliamentary candidate Jason Mark Rutter, said in reply to Ms Chew’s comments: “The Ukip leadership contest is not the Jeremy Kyle show.
“We should not be personally attacking fellow members.”
It comes as there are calls to have Nigel Farage back as Ukip leader.
The ex-Ukip leader hinted at a return to the helm in an interview with the Sunday Times.
Mr Farage said: “If Brexit wasn’t delivered, then I would have to think seriously about plunging back in.”
He added: “But I hope I don’t have to.”
Yesterday Ukip MEP Jonathan Arnott quit the race to succeed Mr Farage claiming he only had a chance of coming second.
He said: “There is no prize for a silver medal in a leadership contest.”
Bill Etheridge and his media team have been contacted for a comment.
