“I don’t think is anti-Semitic and I’m not sure Marine Le Pen is really independent from these people.”However, David Rachline, the Front National Mayor of Fréjus, defended Ms Le Pen.

Making reference to the party’s past, he said: “The detoxification process is about showing ourselves as we are to show the French people what our true proposals are and what Marine really thinks.”

Probing the politician, Gatehouse asked: “The things that people fear about you is that you’re anti-Semitic, Islamophobic.”

Mr Rachline replied: “You can see I won here in Fréjus with 45 per cent of the votes but that does not mean that 45 per cent of people are Islamophobic. They are patriots, they are people who love their town, love their country.”Viewers posted about the documentary in their hundreds. @11MafekingParad said: “Disgraceful reporting from @BBC on #Panorama tonight. Linking far right unaffiliated group to Marine. Nobody believes ur left-wing bias anymore.”

“#Panorama asking who is funding Le Pen.  Now waiting for the BBC to ask who’s funding Gina Miller. #BBCBias,” said @RobSummerfield1, while @theschneck added: “In the 1st 30s of @BBC #Panorama and I can already tell it’s a typical lefty agenda pushing hatchet job. BBC current affairs is just a joke.”

@stephenwilson37 said: “Here we go. #bbc try and tell us how bad #lepen2017 is. Just like they keep telling us how bad #brexit is #panorama.” And @Tullibardine added: “#Panorama Even a left winger like me can see through BBC propaganda like this.”
