Katie Hopkins has revealed that she is a DUP supporter - but believes it is only a matter of time before Ireland is reunited

In a typically frank interview she revealed she was "increasingly torn" about Northern Ireland's future in the UK. Hopkins said she had an affinity for the province as it would have been the first place she would have been posted to had she not been kicked out of Sandhurst Military Academy for not disclosing that she was an epileptic. The outspoken columnist was speaking ahead of the release of her autobiography, Rude. Dubbed the most hated woman in Britain, Hopkins is no stranger to controversy. Her views on everything from working mothers to Muslims have led to death threats, a libel case and her firing. She said: "The DUP increasingly have a role here in British life. I find the DUP and our transfer of cash to them was a curious thing. But a lot of what they stand for seems to be fairly sensible politics in my book. I am a supporter." Yet Hopkins revealed that she has serious doubts about Northern Ireland's future as part of the UK. She added: "I don't think that Northern Ireland will remain part of the UK. I can't imagine a time where we continue the divisions of countries according to lives that don't seem to make sense anymore. As much as I am a huge patriot and a defender of the United Kingdom, you watch Catalan (sic) and Spain, you see how passionate the Catalans are, and you hear Scotland, and you can't help, given the way I feel about Brexit, think that you are either a supporter of independence or you are a hypocrite. I am increasingly torn."
