TV presenter Rylan Clark and former MP Edwina Currie are hitting a deal over Partygate fines

TV presenter Rylan Clark has fallen out with former Tory MP Edwina Currie over the Prime Minister’s refusal to resign over the Downing Street parties.

Oth Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak have issued apologies after receiving imposed fines for attending a birthday gathering for the Prime Minister in June 2020 in breach of Covid rules.

However, both have stated that they will not resign.

Clark, the host of Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two, was among those who criticized the Prime Minister for his online response.

On Wednesday he tweeted: “He officially broke the law. That’s it, isn’t it?’

Currie, who was MP for South Derbyshire between 1983 and 1997 and appeared in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2014 struck back.

She wrote: “No it’s not. Shouldn’t have happened, but now it has. In case you haven’t noticed, this all happened two years ago. Putin laughs at us. Get real.”

Clark then replied: “I didn’t have @Edwina_Currie on my bingo card for this morning.

“Edwina, there is war, we are living with Covid, there is a lot going on publicly and personally. I know when it was. Believe me I don’t have to “get real” it’s a statement. No opinion. You stay healthy, as do I.”

In response, Currie tweeted: “Rylan I have no idea who you are but at least thanks for your courtesy. Don’t let Putin fool you. Or more bodies in Ukraine.”

Clark then sends a “little reminder” to his 1.7 million followers.

He wrote: “Regardless of your upbringing, education, wealth or status, EVERYONE has the right to speak out on politics as a British citizen.”

It comes after Mr Johnson and Mr Sunak on Tuesday apologized and confirmed they had paid fines imposed by the Metropolitan Police.

However, both resisted calls for his resignation and said they were keen to start work.

Children’s book author Michael Rosen and Adam Kay, author of This Is Going To Hurt, were among other famous names who have criticized the PM over the so-called partygate.

Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP have all backed calls for the Commons to be withdrawn from their two-week Easter break so the Prime Minister can “personally tender his resignation” to MPs.
