During an interview with ITV's Political Editor Robert Peston, who was reporting live from Downing Street, Eamonn interjected: "I thought it was classic Theresa May, basically saying I did my bit but it was those pesky MPs that spoiled it all."

After the interview, Ruth asked him if he felt sorry for her.

"No, and I'll tell you why," he said.

"It's not being party political, but I thought it was typical Theresa May. She made it all about her."

"She's just saying 'you've got rid of me because I'm brilliant'. She just stood there and told us how brilliant she was," he continued.

She's been the worst Prime Minister maybe this country has ever had.

Eamonn then said, "She's been the worst Prime Minister maybe this country has ever had."

"All of this trouble is of her own making. She doesn't listen to people."
