As she walked past a crowd that had gathered outside the Downing Street gates, she was caught on camera appearing to shout "those who laugh last, laugh the loudest, wait and see".

Her stance on Mr Johnson has been different to the one she adopted on his predecessor Theresa May, who she was a fierce critic of.

Among those who vacated roles during the mass exodus were Rishi Sunak, Sajid Javid and Michelle Donelan.

Standing outside No 10 behind a lectern, Mr Johnson said: “To that new leader, I say, whoever he or she may be, I say: ‘I will give you as much support as I can’.

“To you, the British public, I know that there will be many people who are relieved and perhaps quite a few who will also be disappointed.

“I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world.”
