Everyone is making the same joke about Theresa May lookalike on BGT

Viewers reckon PM already has new career lined up

A Theresa May lookalike dance act opened tonight's Britain's Got Talent — and everyone is making the same joke.

The Prime Minister announced her resignation only yesterday, but fans of the show already reckon they have figured out why.

BGT hopeful Kath Thompson strode out to Abba's Dancing Queen, which Mrs May infamously bopped to before making a speech at the Conservative Party conference.

And after she stripped off during a medley of dance songs, viewers took to social media to share the theory that the PM is stepping down to take up a new career in showbiz.

One wrote: "So this is why may is leaving she got a new job."

Another posted: "I see Theresa May’s got a new job already."

So this is why may is leaving she got a new job.

Echoing the thought, another tweeted: "Looks like Theresa has already found a new job!"

A fourth said: "So that's what Theresa May is doing now!"

One fan added: "Theresa May hasn’t wasted any time."

Not everyone, however, was convinced with the impersonation, with several tweeting that she looked more like Julie Walters' comedy character Mrs Overall from Victoria Wood sketch Acorn Antiques.

Others, meanwhile, pointed out that the timing of the act, just 24 hours after Mrs May announced she would step down as PM on June 7, was terrible.
