UKIP leader, Nigel Farage walked out of an ITV interview following a rant at two British newspapers, The Sun and The Daily Mail.
His outburst came after the first set of results were announced.
Farage said: “I want to congratulate the editors of the Sun and the Daily Mail: they’re geniuses.
“They said the UKIP vote would split the Tory vote. God help us.”
After this statement he then walked away from the interviewer in his target seat of South Thanet, South East England.
The two biggest-selling daily UK newspapers have warned readers that a vote for UKIP would decrease the chance of Cameron serving a second term as Prime Minister.
Farage is believed to finish in third place in his constituency, behind Conservative’s Craig Mackinlay, and Will Scobie of the Labour Party.
The exit poll, released earlier this evening, suggested that Farage’s party would win just two seats come tomorrow, leaving its representation in the Commons unchanged.
However, the poll predicted a Tory government just short of a majority, with 316 seats.
