How many children does Boris have?

An MP told the paper that Boris also has the educational costs of his children to consider.

The MP said: “Boris has at least six children, some young enough to need financial help.

“And he had to pay ex-wife Marina Wheeler a shedload as part of their divorce deal.”

An MP says Boris is ‘very, very badly served’

And Boris’ also allegedly had enough of living at Number 10.

The source claimed: “Boris, like other prime ministers, is very, very badly served.

“He doesn’t have a housekeeper – he has a single cleaner and they’re worried about being able to afford a nanny.

“He’s stuck in the flat and Downing Street is not a nice place to live.”

If Boris is to step down, there are already rumoured top contenders to take his place.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak is the bookies current favourite.

Other potentials are Cabinet Office chief Michael Gove, former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt.

Indeed it has been far from smooth sailing since Boris took over as PM last year.

In addition to receiving vast criticism for his handling of Brexit negotiations, he’s also come under fire for confusing messaging regarding COVID-19.

And of course he suffered from coronavirus himself, and was in intensive care before recovering at Chequers.
