Rylan Clark speaks out on The Last Leg
Rylan was asked his opinion on a tweet sent out by Tory MP Nadine Dorres earlier this week. It detailed what leadership candidates Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss were wearing.
Rylan responded: “I don’t care if you’re wearing a £200k suit, as long as you’re running the country right, I don’t care what’s on your feet or on your back.
“Primark or Prada, I don’t think it really, really matters.”
He continuned: “I don’t care what you’re wearing.
“Just run the country right, look after people in this country, and stop being a [Bleep Bleep].”
The studio audience erupted into cheers and Twitter immediately demanded Rylan was snapped up for the top job instead.

And it’s not the first time Rylan has been talked about in the top role.
He put himself forward on Twitter when it looked like Boris Johnson was about to resign. Boris handed his resignation in hours later.
He tweeted: “One day, I’ll be prime minister!”
Channel 4’s Rick Edwards replied: “This has finally broken my impartiality – you have my vote.”
One day, I’ll be prime minister
