Miriam Margolyes sworn in on Radio 4 as she wished the new Prime Minister good luck

Miriam Margolyes told how she wanted to swear by new Prime Minister Jeremy Hunt when she met him in a BBC studio just a day after he took on his latest role in Government.

The 81-year-old actress, who is known to be outspoken in interviews, said she wished Mr Hunt the best of luck, but added that she wanted to use stronger words against him.

Margolyes was on BBC Radio 4 Today in memory of the late actor Robbie Coltrane, who passed away on Friday.

At the end of the interview, she told presenters Martha Kearney and Justin Webb that she greeted Mr Hunt, who had been interviewed on the Saturday morning show before her.

She said: “When I saw him there, I just said ‘you have an amazing job, the best of luck’.

“What I really wanted to say (was) ‘f*** you, you damn it’, but you can’t say it.”

Webb was quick to apologize for the language, adding: “Oh, no, no, no, you can’t say that. No, you can’t say that! “

Mr Hunt conducted his first round of media interviews since he replaced Kwasi Kwarteng as Prime Minister on Friday.

He said he would meet Treasury officials later on Saturday and with Prime Minister Liz Truss on Sunday.
