This Morning viewers mock David Cameron for suggesting family was nearly 'homeless' after leaving Downing Street

Come on, Dave!

David Cameron appeared to suggest on This Morning that his family was almost left homeless after the 2016 EU Referendum.

On today's (19.09.19) episode, the former prime minister was on with his wife Samantha to talk about the political turmoil that followed Britain's vote to leave the European Union three years ago.

He spoke about their surprise at having to leave Downing Street in just a few days, after stepping down as leader of the Conservatives, and praised his "brilliant" wife for "finding somewhere for [the family] to go".

Samantha was brilliant at getting us moved out, finding somewhere for us to go.

David told co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "I didn't expect to leave Downing Street so quickly, I thought I'd have three months to steady things and start talking about the future while there was a Conservative leadership election. Of course, that collapsed so we left in just a few days.

"Samantha was brilliant at getting us moved out, finding somewhere for us to go and keeping the family sorted. It was all pretty quick."

Samantha agreed: "It was, it was super speedy. We knew we would be leaving but it but [we thought we would have] a couple of months.

"Maybe it was good that it happened really quickly. You've just got to get on with it."

On Twitter, viewers weren't impressed that David - who has a net worth of £40m, as reported by the Express - seemed to suggest that the family came close to being homeless.
