UKIP leader Henry Bolton is facing fresh scandal after his girlfriend's racist texts about Meghan Markle surfaced online.

The 54-year-old was already in hot water after he left his wife and two young children for 25-year-old Jo Marney, whom he met in December.

Ms Marney has now been found to have sent text messages remarking that Prince Harry's fiancee, actress Meghan Markle, will "taint" the royal family with "her seed".

"Just a dumb little commoner. Tiny brain," one text read.

"This is Britain, not Africa.

"She's a black American. Pushing their way to the top slowly. Next will be a Muslim PM and a black king."

Ms Marney also wrote she would never have sex with "a negro" because they're "ugly".

She was suspended from UKIP after The Mail brought her messages to her party superiors.

The incident comes just days after calls for Mr Bolton's resignation after he left his wife.
