Farage said his party would have no links to Marie Le Penn's Front National, resisting calls to join an international anti-EU alliance.
The UK Independence Party has removed the whip from MEP Godfrey Bloom after he called women "sluts" a fringe event.
The Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom has a history of gaffes and controversies. Here are eight of them.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage told ITV's The Agenda how becoming a father altered his libertarian "let it all hang out" views in a discussion on Miley Cyrus' provocative "twerking" and pop music's potentially damaging influence on children.
Asked about twerking and sexualised content seen by children, UKIP leader Nigel Farage has told ITV's The Agenda he believes Miley Cyrus is a "negative and pernicious influence" on his young daughter.
He said: "I've always been a fairly let it all hang out type of person, there's no point having things that are banned or illegal, let them make their own minds up."
He adds: "And then I had two young daughters. Call me hypocrite if you want to but my 8-year-old talks about Miley Cyrus over the breakfast table...This really is a very bad, negative, pernicious influence.
"So that's my position, I don't like it, I think the influence on my 8-year-old daughter is bad. The question is what to do about it - I honestly don't know...You can ban things being on television but actually through iphones and everything else it's accessible anyway."
UKIP leader Nigel Farage responded to Adam Afriyie's position on an EU Refurendum in 2014, telling BBC One's Andrew Marr Show that David Cameron's changing stance has left people unsure of what to believe.
"What Adam Afriyie has done is he has put his finger on the real problem and that is, four years ago Mr Cameron gave us a cast-iron guarantee of a referendum.
"This time last year he was saying 'no referendum' and he's now saying there should be a referendum and people aren't quite sure what to believe."
Ukip leader Nigel Farage rolled up on the fringes of the Conservative Party conference today denying any formal election pact with David Cameron.
And that feeling is mutual, as David Cameron told ITV News today.
But Mr Farage told a fringe event he would be "open minded" about local candidates running on joint tickets.
ITV News political correspondent Romilly Weeks spoke to the controversial politician:
Nigel Farage has suggested there are "a couple of dozen" Conservative MPs with whom Ukip could come to an agreement at a local level regarding an elections.
Mr Farage told BBC Radio 4's The World At One his party had already held informal discussions with a "handful" of them.
The Ukip leader continued: "There are a couple of dozen Tory MPs who hold a range of views on several issues, not just Europe, that are very close to our own."
A prominent Eurosceptic Conservative MP Bill Cash and Ukip leader Nigel Farage has come to verbal blows on the sidelines of the Conservative Party conference.
At a fringe meeting hosted by the Bruges Group, the question of whether the Tories and Ukip should consider striking local deals in the upcoming General Election was debated.
Mr Cash told the Ukip leader to "lay off our marginal seats" and suggested a joint ticket would not work.
Mr Farage hit back by calling the Tory MP "a hopelessly out of date tribal politician."
UKIP leader Nigel Farage said he would not be kicking Godfrey Bloom out of the party because of what he called an "outdated sense of humour".
However, Farage conceded that an outburst from the MEP, in which he called women "sluts", has damaged the party.
"The impression has been given Godfrey thinks somehow women really aren't quite the same as men and really not up to the same standard as men, and that's the impression that the sense of humour has given and that's not been a good thing for us," said Farage.
Godfrey Bloom released a statement announcing that he will sit as an independent MEP but will remain a UKIP member:
– Godfrey Bloom
I have felt for some time now that the ‘New UKIP’ is not really right for me anymore. I shall sit out my term as an independent and give my whole hearted support to Jane Collins who is almost certainly going to be the next UKIP MEP and probably a second seat yet to be decided. I shall of course retain my membership.
Godfrey Bloom says he will sit as an independent MEP until next year's European election but has not quit UKIP.
Mr Bloom, an MEP for Yorkshire and Humber, was stripped of the party whip last week after calling women "sluts" at a UKIP conference fringe event.
Mr Bloom said the "New UKIP" was "not really right for me any more". His spokeswoman said it was not clear whether he would seek re-election for a third term next May.
