When pressed on what he meant he said: "I'm building garage for the quad bike, not a big quad bike, it was a miniature quad bike."

"Fantastic!" Dorries replied.

Johnson was ousted from office last summer after dealing with a series of scandals including Partygate and allegations about Chris Pincher.

He was replaced by Liz Truss who lasted for about five minutes until Rishi Sunak in turn replaced her.
