Boris Johnson has relented to mounting pressure and agreed to one last TV appearance with the BBC – on Would I Lie to You?
Mr Johnson has come under increasing pressure for avoiding scrutiny ahead of Thursday’s general election.
But he has chosen to appear on a programme where he will shine.
Telling porkies is the name of the game on the show hosted by Rob Brydon, and this time Mr Johnson can do so AND be applauded.
It’s not yet known if Mr Johnson will be on Lee Mack or David Mitchell’s team for the special episode, which airs on BBC1 tomorrow night.
BBC make-up artist Lorraine Fisher, 34, confirmed the Tory leader is a panellist on this week’s show.
“I did his blusher before filming. I didn’t have much time as I was detained by the other special guest, Prince Andrew, who was sweating profusely and needed it covering up.”
It is believed Mr Johnson didn’t do very well during the filming, with guests spotting he was lying from a mile off.
A show insider said: “The title of the show is Would I Lie to You?. And in Boris’ case, the answer is always, ‘Yes!'”
