The appointment comes the day after Ms Jenkyns was filmed shouting at members of the public, following Boris Johnson's resignation speech.

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".

Ms Jenkyns has been MP for the Morley and Outwood constituency since the 2015 general election, when she famously won the seat from shadow education secretary Ed Balls.

An outspoken advocate of Brexit, she increased her majority in the 2019 election to more than 11,000.
