Mrs May would be unable to form a coalition without the support of the Democratic Unionist Party, but this morning DUP leader Arlene Foster said she did not favour a hard Brexit - an indication of the upheaval to come.

"Let's get on with the job", Johnson tweeted just after 11.00 p.m. BST on Sunday, responding to the front page of the paper, which claims "BORIS SET TO LAUNCH BID TO BE PM AS MAY CLINGS ON".

May's office said Saturday principles of an agreement had been reached, but the two sides later clarified that they are still talking.

"The talks so far have been positive".

"As and when details are finalised both parties will put them forward". "We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond", the statement said. Mr Wickham reported a "Pro-David Davis source" told him that Mr Johnson was the "massive favourite" to take over the reins of power, though the source added: "but when has the favourite ever won".

Mrs May's position looked insecure amid disquiet within the Tory party and reports of manouvering by Mr Johnson's supporters.

'We need Bojo. We need a Brexiteer, ' the said. We need somebody who can talk and connect with people like Jeremy Corbyn does.

The Foreign Secretary, whose hopes of leading the Conservative Party were dashed past year when Michael Gove announced his own leadership bid, is apparently being tipped by Tory frontbenchers, pundits and bookmakers to replace Mrs May should her party fail to secure a majority.

"And move to a consensus within the country about what it means and what we seek to achieve as we leave".
