Jeremy Hunt has told Sky News that he believes Liz Truss will still be prime minister at Christmas – despite five Conservative MPs already publicly calling for her to leave Number 10.

In an interview with Sky News political editor Beth Rigby, the new chancellor called on Conservative MPs to “give her a chance”.

He also ruled out becoming prime minister himself, saying: “I rule it out, Mrs Hunt rules it out, three Hunt children rule it out.”
