Loose Women panelist Coleen Nolan has defended Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he faces a vote of no confidence.
The Conservative Prime Minister will today appeal to his own party for support hours before a secret ballot begins to decide on his future.
Multiple MPs have issued statements declaring they have no confidence in the PM, and leadership race could begin should Boris be ousted from his position on Monday.
Some point to the PM’s handling of Covid-19 or the multiple parties held in Downing Street over lockdown as to why the PM should go, but Coleen is essentially ‘tired of it’ all.
Appearing on Monday’s episode of Loose Women, Coleen, when asked her opinion of the no confidence vote, began by sighing exasperatedly and trying to change the subject to Love Island.
‘I’m just tired of it,’ she said. ‘It’s Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris.’
She insisted: ‘I understand all the things he did wrong and he should feel responsible for it and own up to it and all of those things, but I also think he did a pretty good job at the beginning, in the first lockdown.
‘I don’t think any of them would have done it any differently.
Coleen added that she ‘can’t trust any’ politicians, insisting: ‘They all talk a great game until they’re in power.’
The sentiment was echoed by Denise Welch, who said while she wouldn’t be a fan of Boris she is ‘more terrified of the alternative’ should he be ousted from the role.
However Sophie Morgan disagreed, saying in her opinion it ‘feels wrong’ for there to be no consequences for the Prime Minister.
It was confirmed on Monday morning that enough Tory MPs had called for a change in leadership to trigger a formal vote after weeks of growing unrest.
Those who have publically announced they will be voting to oust the PM include ex-minister Jesse Norman, who called his claims he had been ‘vindicated’ over the partygate affair ‘grotesque’.
Former foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, who lost out on the Tory leadership to Mr Johnson in 2019, has also confirmed he would vote to oust the PM.
