Same-sex marriage supporters are "equality Nazis" and the new laws are "rubbing people's noses in the dirt", a gay Ukip MEP has said.

David Coburn described the reforms as "false bollocks" that only matter to "some queen who wants to dress up in a bridal frock and dance up the aisle to the Village People".

In the outspoken interview, the Scotland MEP denied calling the nation's Conservative leader Ruth Davidson a "fat lesbian" but instead likened her to "porridge".

Mr Coburn, who described himself as "spectacularly homosexual" and a "great big screaming poof", told the Huffington Post UK: "What you're doing with the gay marriage issue is you're rubbing people's noses in the dirt. Everyone had agreed and been quite happy with the idea of civil partnership, it was all bedded in and people were happy with it, they got used to the idea.

"But when you go across the road to pick a fight with someone of faith, that's not got anything to do with it, that's the equality Nazis trying to give Christianity a jolly good kicking. You know it, I know it, we all know it - it's false bollocks, the lot of it."

Mr Coburn mocked the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon for her "mad scary eyes" and accused Ms Davidson of being "rather boring".

"She could have been a ten pound gorilla or a rhinoceros, and they (the Tories) would still have clapped her (at the Tory conference)," he said. "She's the only thing they've got."

Mr Coburn claimed gay rights groups such as the charity Stonewall "explode" with outrage about everything.

He added: "They are professional bombs that are primed to go off. They are people looking for something to be upset about."
