Farage was questioned by ITV News about the exit poll.
It suggested that UKIP has only won two seats.
Farage responded: "I want to congratulate the editors of the Sun and Daily Mail. They're geniuses. They said the UKIP vote would split the Tory vote. God help us."
Prior to the interview there were rumours circulating that Farage has in fact finished third in Thanet.
