Mr Spencer was reacting to questions from TV news crews as he left Downing Street, with reporters asking him if the Prime Minister should resign.

Mr Spencer turned and said: “The Prime Minister is getting us out of the pandemic faster than any other country, the man’s a hero.”

Mr Johnson is under continued pressure following his admission and apology to the House of Commons last week that he attended a drinks party in the garden at No 10 in May 2020 when the rest of the country was in lockdown.
