Boris Johnson's former communications director Dominic Cummings has heaped more woe on the Prime Minister as he claims a second secret Christmas Party took place in Downing Street last year.

Writing on Twitter, Cummings said: "Will the [Cabinet Secretary] also be asked to investigate the *flat* party on Fri 13 Nov, the other flat parties, & the flat's 'bubble' policy…?"

The Labour Party leader Keir Starmer mocked the Prime Minister, telling him "even Ant and Dec are ahead of him," after the I'm A Celeb hosts ridiculed Boris Johnson last night.

Scottish National Party leader Ian Blackford called on the Prime Minister to resign following footage released by ITV News of Downing Street staff joking last December about an alleged Christmas Party on December 18.

Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan asked Boris Johnson "how he could sleep at night," after opening up about working in A&E last year as a frontline NHS worker as the Covid pandemic ravaged the UK.

In a fiery House of Commons, the PM apologised for the video of Allegra Stratton and insisted he understood the public fury over the footage, which came after days of denial that any party took place.

Ian Blackford, following up on Cummings' tweet, said there were reports of three parties at Downing Street last winter, including one in Johnson's flat.

Starmer also brought up that the Queen had sat alone at the funeral of her husband Prince Philip, following the coronavirus rules in place at the time.

"Leadership, sacrifice – that is what gives leaders the moral authority to lead," he said.

The Prime Minister accused of Labour of "playing politics" throughout the pandemic, drawing a furious response from the opposition benches.
