Candidates in the Eastleigh by-election have been out canvassing during the last weekend of campaigning.
It coincided with the defection of UKIP South East MEP Marta Andreasen to the Conservatives.
In response, Mr Farage said the Tories "deserve what is coming to them" and added: "The woman is impossible."
