UKIP has suspended the glamour model who is in a relationship with party leader Henry Bolton after claims she made racist remarks about Meghan Markle.

The leaked messages resulted in her immediate suspension from Ukip after the Mail on Sunday alerted party bosses to Jo Marney's highly offensive views.

"No offence was intended and, again, I apologise unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip my friends, family and loved ones".

During the shocking tirade, the glamour model claims she would never have sex with a "negro", and describes black people as "ugly".

In the conversation, she also targets ethnic minorities in general, saying they are "pushing their way to the top slowly".

The comments were allegedly made by the model in a text exchange with a male friend roughly three weeks before she embarked on a relationship with the politician. "Next will be a Muslim PM and a black king".

Bolton is set to face a crunch meeting over his future as Ukip's National Executive Committee will convene on Thursday to decide his fate. "And a black king". The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. "Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused", she added.

The party chairman, Paul Oakden, said he chose to suspend Marney's party membership immediately after he was made aware of the messages. "Ukip does not, has not and will never condone racism", he said. Bolton's may also be suspended from Ukip following a series of investigations.

On Sunday, he was accused on Twitter of being in Marney's company when he appeared on television in mid-October.

He was responding to a teenage party activist who urged him to publicly call for Ms Marney to have her membership removed. Nuttall resigned after seven months following the Election, when Ukip's polled less than 2 per cent. Steve Crowther took over until Mr Bolton was elected in September. He was followed as leader by Diane James, who lasted just 18 days after feuding with the party's "old guard".
