Henry Bolton says he could MARRY ‘racist text’ girlfriend

Henry Bolton has suggested he could marry model girlfriend Jo Marney – days after being ousted as Ukip leader.

Mr Bolton was dramatically ejected from the leadership over the weekend after a scandal over his affair with Miss Marney.

He was sacked by party members despite claiming he had split from the 25-year-old when it emerged she had sent a series of racist messages.

The pair have been seen out and about together since the vote at the extraordinary meeting on Saturday. 

Mr Bolton has repeatedly insisted that he had broken off his relationship with Ms Marney despite being spotted together in recent weeks

And asked on BBC Radio Kent today whether they were in a relationship, Mr Bolton, 54, said: ‘That’s a yes.’

Pressed on whether there might be wedding bells in the future, the ex-army officer replied ‘perhaps’.

Mr Bolton is still married, having left his wife Tatiana Smurova and children for the model and Ukip activist over Christmas.

The couple had repeatedly insisted the relationship was over after it emerged Ms Marney had sent a tirade of racist messages about Meghan Markle to a friend.

Speaking after the vote, Mr Bolton revealed he is considering launching legal action against against Ukip’s NEC over the way he has been treated.

Meanwhile, Miss Marney sent a series of tweets declaring her love for the father-of-three and hinting that they will pick their relationship back up.

She wrote on Twitter: ‘I love the bloke and that’s that. UKIP leader or dustman.

‘I may be many things but shallow isn’t one of them. We’ve stood by each other throughout this and I will continue to do so.’

Mr Bolton was spotted walking out in the rain with Jo Marney yesterday in the wake of his axing.

The pair were seen strolling together under a giant blue umbrella after she spent the night at his Folkestone apartment in Kent. 

On Sunday afternoon they were also spotted drinking red wine together at the Rose and Crown pub near Hyde Park.
