Boris Johnson is being interviewed by the show’s host, Susanna Reid, on Good Morning Britain for the first time in almost five years.
The Prime Minister was last interviewed on the ITV breakfast show in 2017 when he was Foreign Secretary.
During this morning’s show, presenter Kate Garraway announced that Reid, 51, will be interviewing Johnson live from 10 Downing Street on May 3.
The interview will air tomorrow on Good Morning Britain and will mark the Prime Minister’s first official appearance on the ITV show in almost five years.
Johnson made a cursory appearance on the show in December 2019 when he walked away from the cameras and appeared to be hiding in an industrial refrigerator to avoid an interview.
Piers Morgan, who was hosting Good Morning Britain at the time of the incident, responded to news of Johnson’s return to the show, tweeting: “He’s out the fridge! When you do the rounds
@BorisJohnson – you know where to find me.”
In October last year, during the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, another attempt was made to get the Prime Minister to appear on the breakfast show.
Presenter Ranvir Singh tried to get in touch with Johnson and invited him to speak on the show, but she was greeted with a raised hand as the Prime Minister left.
