WATCH: Labour MP does amazing impression of Boris Johnson on live TV

“Oh sorry, I just shagged your wife, didn’t realise, ooh!”

By media mole

Rupa Huq, Labour MP for Ealing Central and Acton since 2015 and former shadow crime minister, should consider a career in impersonation.

She did a spectacularly scathing impression of Boris Johnson on live television during a Channel 4 News discussion about the former foreign secretary’s insults of Muslim women.

“Oh, sorry, I just shagged your wife, didn’t realise, ooh!” she roared, to a nervous yet amused Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

From a nation utterly depressed at the state of modern politics, thank you Rupa, for giving us a few seconds of merriment.
