Former politician and prominent Brexiteer Nigel Farage says he was tricked into saying 'Up the Ra'.
The former politician offers personalised birthday wishes on a website called Cameo for a fee.
On the video which was widely shared on social media he said:
“I hope you have a great birthday. This comes from your good friend. Now, it’s a bit early in the day, so all I’ve got is coffee. But I hope you enjoy a few pints with the lads tonight. Up the RA!”.
It's been viewed more than 90,000 times since it was uploaded.
Nigel Farage has since told the Mail Online: 'If I saw 'up the RA' I would have looked at that as something very innocent, and wouldn't have even known there was an implication to it.
'A lot of messages that I get are friends sending each other messages with their own little jokes or their own little words which I have to judge - and of course, I reject some if they are crude or offensive."
