The Prime Minister was fired from his shadow cabinet post at the time. Initially, he had denied any romantic relationship.

Meanwhile, Petronella labelled the Prime Minister as “thin-skinned”.

“Surprisingly thin skinned yes,” she said. “Surprisingly sensitive. Easily upset by criticism or the thought that people dislike him.”

In addition, she added: “He has a very soft core. I think this would be absolutely hell for him in private. He’s a bit of an enigma. I think people have the wrong impression of him.”
