Nigel Farage today joined a growing list of politicians suffering from food failure when he awkwardly ridiculed a fruit loaf during his campaign in Sunderland.
The former UKIP leader was shown terribly agitated with his mouth wide open as he bit into the piece of cake.
Another snapshot showed the Brexiteer's tongue dangling from his mouth as he finished the baked treat before washing it off with a cup of tea.
Farage is in the pro-leave city and is launching a Brexit party rally after a week of controversy during which he was accused of escaping a car accident.
He told supporters today that Theresa May's Brexit deal was "like a surrender document of a nation that was defeated in the war."
It is facing the European elections on May 23, in which the Brexit party hopes to benefit from a loss of confidence in the mainstream parties.

Mr. Farage joins people like Ed Miliband, Theresa May and David Cameron to be caught awkwardly eating during a campaign.
Ms. May looked extremely uncomfortable trying to figure out how to eat a bag of chips with cameras trained on her in the run up to the 2017 general election in Cornwall.
The tricky moment was reminiscent of Ed Miliband's "bacon sandwich" moment in 2014, when photographers grabbed him with a funny face over breakfast before the local elections.

David Cameron was also mocked in 2015 when he ate a hot dog with a knife and fork during a campaign event – in an obvious attempt not to fall into the same trap as Mr. Miliband. He was forced to deny his way of eating, which showed that he was noble.
Farage will meet former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe and they will speak at a 2000-seat party event in the Rainton Meadows Arena in Houghton this afternoon.
It comes after Mr. Farage was accused of leaving a car accident with a 13 month old boy on Thursday.
Mr. Farage and Ms. Widdecombe, who are taking part in the European elections this month, were joined by Brexit Party leader Richard Tice and other Northeast election officials, including Brian Monteith, John Tennant and Richard Monaghan.

In March, 55-year-old Farage led a crowd of 200 Brexit supporters on a 270-mile march from Sunderland to London and arrived in Parliament Square on March 29 – the day Britain was supposed to leave the EU.
Mr. Farage was cheered on by hundreds of people at the Houghton-le-Spring rally today, which also previewed the party's new election show.
Mr. Farage accused both the Tory government and the Labor leadership, but made no mention of reports that he had left the site of a collision between his chauffeur-driven car and another vehicle in Kent on Thursday.

Mr. Farage said: “It (Brexit) partly did not happen in Theresa May because of the dishonest, double and completely useless Prime Minister.
"No question, she is the worst prime minister in the history of this country, apart from none."
He said Ms. May's rally was a new EU treaty.

"A contract that will cost us £ 39bn for reasons I don't understand yet," he said.
“A contract that may leave us trapped in the EU customs union in the long run.
"This treaty, which she wants to enforce, is more of a surrender document of a nation that was defeated in the war."
Mr. Farage said: “It has humiliated our country internationally and I am fed up with it. & # 39;
Mr. Farage hit the London-led Labor Party and said, "These MPs look down on you, they think you're idiots, they tell you that you didn't know what you voted for."
He told the northeastern audience that they had also been betrayed by the London-led Labor Party and local MPs.
He said: "These MPs look down on you, they think you're an idiot, they tell you you didn't know what you voted for.
"I can say on your behalf and on behalf of graduates across the UK, hell with you, we knew what we voted for."
Former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe was cheered in the crowded hall when she slandered "those patronizing, snooty Nincompoops sitting at their dinner parties and saying" poor loved ones they didn't know what they were voting for ".
Ms. Widdecombe said, "Those patronizing, snooty nincompoops who sit at their dinner parties and say," Poor dear, they didn't know what they voted for. "
Ms. WIddecombe added: "We knew exactly what we were voting for."
She said, "We knew exactly what we were voting for."
Ms. Widdecombe said: “The message of these local elections and the message of these European elections is really simple. Either let them go in Westminster UK or we let them go. & # 39;
She said: "If they don't take us out of the EU, the Brexit Party will take Westminster in the next general election and take us out of the EU."
The party's leader, Mr. Tice, told the Sunderland Echo: “We expect a large crowd on Saturday as it is a very strong area for vacation voting, and of course we started March to leave in Sunderland.
“There is a large number of people in the northeast who feel cheated by the Labor Party, and we saw in the local elections that voters are now looking elsewhere.
"Our party plans to take over the establishment that has not reached Brexit."
Mr. Farage is one of six speakers who will speak about the event this afternoon starting at 2 p.m. Ms. Widdecombe and local candidates will also speak

Mr. Tice added: "Our party plans to take over the establishment that has not reached Brexit."
Ms. Widdecombe spoke today to the crowd that started at 2 p.m.
He added, "Instead, we have all kinds of backroom deals between Labor and the Conservatives, and it seems the majority of the candidates are still."
Six speakers will attend the event, which begins at 2 p.m., including Mr. Farage and Ms. Widdecombe, as well as the local candidates.
It's the end of a controversial week for Mr. Farage, in which he was accused of getting away from a car accident with a 13-month-old boy and getting involved in a row because of his numerous appearances at the BBC.
It turned out last night that Mr. Farage was reportedly "getting on and off" after his chauffeur-driven Range Rover crashed into a Jaguar with a father and son on Thursday morning.
The leader of the Brexit party (in yesterday's election campaign in Lincoln with Jonathan Bullock (left), Tracey Knowles and Annunziata Rees-Mogg (right), who are supposed to be MPs in the East Midlands) is said to have "ascended and left after his chauffeur driving" "his Range Rover crashed into a jaguar carrying a father and 13 month old son
38-year-old George and Dragon Pub landlord Patrick Tranter and his son George both went to the hospital for treatment. The 38-year-old said that Mr. Farage was now "banned" because of his lack of "decency".
38-year-old landlord Patrick Tranter and his son George both went to the hospital for treatment.
Mr. Tranter said to The Sun: “He lives two miles away and loves a beer, but he won't get one from me. Man of the people, my ass.
"It is blocked for me."
But Mr. Farage denied the allegations last night, claiming he had checked that no one was hurt before adding, "If I'm banned, it's not too terrible, is it?"
Mr. Tranter, who had been visited by Mr. Farage at the George and Dragon Pub in Westerham, Kent, had dropped his wife off at the train station and was driving home when the two cars collided in Titsey.
Mr. Tranter, whose Jaguar Series 3 Sovereign was written off in 1986, added: “We crashed with a huge bang. Farage could not have missed George screaming. I ran out to see if my little boy was fine.
Farage got out of the Range Rover, took his bag from the trunk, and walked away.
"He didn't have the usual decency to see if we were okay and never looked back."

The collision occurred Thursday morning, hours before his 34th appearance in Question Time in Northampton
But Mr. Farage hit back last night and said, “The driver of the other car was abusive. He cursed very loudly and after accidents people do all kinds of things. It was quite a blast and I understand why people can be a bit shocked.
After realizing that everyone was fine, I discreetly withdrew from the situation.
If someone had been injured, I would have stayed and waited for the ambulance. I didn't hear his child scream, so I went up the street. & # 39;
A spokesman for the Brexit party added: “The car had an accident through no fault of its own. Nigel didn't drive it. Nigel continued his journey in another car.
& # 39; The driver stayed at the scene. The police were present and details were exchanged. It was a little shunt. & # 39;
Mr Farage's Brexit party led the elections ahead of the European Parliament elections on May 23. A recent poll found that over 30 percent would vote for the new party
The Brexiteer was also drawn into a war of words because it pulled "Have I Got News For You" last night.
The show was postponed just minutes before it was aired because it was feared that it would violate the impartiality rules of the election because Change UK chairman Heidi Allen was a guest.
The BBC's editorial guidelines on electoral periods do not allow programs that do not achieve "equal representation".
The BBC has filmed a series of Have I Got News For You (image) due to impartiality concerns (image: an audience has photographed the set and posted it on Reddit).
On the Twitter page "Do I have news for you?" The decision was announced and the following was published: "Sorry to everyone. The BBC released #HIGNFY today – no, we didn't book Danny Baker.

The BBC said the episode would air "at a later date."
Ms. Allen, who left the Conservative Party earlier this year to join Pro-Remain Change UK, asked for a statement from the BBC.
She tweeted: & # 39; Maybe I'm just not as funny as Nigel Farage anyway #hignfy @haveigotnews !?
"He's so funny, he seems to be on the BBC all the time! An explanation would be desirable, not least to acknowledge the hard work of the entire crew, who worked diligently to put the show together. & # 39;
Ms. Allen had tweeted excitedly on Thursday that she would appear on the BBC show
Many social media users expressed concerns that the BBC introduced Mr. Farage earlier this week during Question Time. Some called it an "interesting decision," others said it was "the highest ranking hypocrisy."
A social media user wrote: "Has anyone told #Ofcom about Nigel Farage's revolving door to #BBCQT?"
A BBC spokesman told MailOnline: & # 39; The BBC has special editorial guidelines that apply during election periods.
Pictured: The Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, appears during the BBC's Question Time. A spokesman said: "Question Time is a political debate program in which representatives of various political parties participate."
The Twitter page "Do I have news for you?" Was published after the announcement of the decision and seemed to make fun of Mr. Farage's appearances in Question Time
For this reason, it would be inappropriate to involve party leaders in entertainment programs during this short term, which does not allow for equal representation.
& # 39; So we will not broadcast the planned episode of HIGNFY with Heidi Allen, the director of Change UK. We will try to broadcast this episode later. & # 39;
When asked about the difference between Ms. Allen's appearance at HIGNFY and that of Mr. Farage at Question Time, the spokesman added: “The explanation refers to the appearance during entertainment programs during this short term, which does not allow for equal representation.
"Question Time is a political debate program in which representatives of various political parties take part."
