The Daily Star newspaper took the opportunity to celebrate: The outlet streamed a store-bought head of lettuce via their website and challenged Truss to last longer than the slowly wilting vegetable.

Truss announced her resignation the day after defiantly declaring that she was “a fighter and not a quitter.”

The lettuce – dressed in a blonde wig with googly hands and eyes – sports a big smile and is now surrounded by celebratory booze.

The Daily Star promises the lettuce chief will “address the nation” later on Thursday about his victory.
