PRIME Minister Boris Johnson apologised to members inside the House of Commons today after leaked footage emerged of staff joking about an alleged Downing Street Christmas Party last year.
The PM was grilled by the opposition over the issue during Prime Ministers Questions, where he promised an investigation will be launched to get to the bottom of the allegations.
But Labour boss Sir Keir Starmer joked "Ant and Dec are ahead of you" in a reference to their I'm A Celebrity jibe at the beginning of last night's show.
In an attempt to diffuse the growing unease from his backbenchers, he told MPs he "shared the anger" of millions of people upon seeing that video and stressed "I was also furious to see that clip."
The PM, flanked by Rishi Sunak and Brandon Lewis, said: "I apologise unreservedly for the offence it has caused up and down the country, and the impression that it gives."
