    Nigel Farage finally has won a seat in Parliament from Clacton after his eighth attempt on a night that forged a sweeping defeat of Conservatives MPs. The seaside community of Clacton had been regarded as Reform UK’s best hope. 

    Farage defeated the Conservative candidate, Giles Watling with a tally of 21,225 votes to Watling’s 12,820.

    During his victory speech, Farage pivoted to the party’s future.

    When asked if he wanted to become prime minister, he replied: “Whatever happens, happens, and probably by 2029 this movement will have found someone younger and better looking than me.”

    On the Thursday night, the Reform UK candidates were expected to take over 10 seats, but by the early Friday morning it had won only four with the former Conservative deputy chair Lee Anderson successfully defending his seat in Ashfield.

    Anderson described his constituency of Ashfield as “the capital of common sense” after polling 17,062 votes, beating Labour’s 11,553.

    Richard Tice, Reform’s chair and the man who stepped aside so Farage could return, won Lincolnshire constituency of Boston and Skegness, calling it “the proudest day of my life.” 

    The former Southampton football club chairman Rupert Lowe won a seat in Great Yarmouth, which has been held by the Conservatives for 14 years.
