People have been left speechless after spotting a video of former prime minister Theresa May dancing to Craig David during Boris Johnson's resignation on Thursday.
May, who was replaced by Johnson in July 2019 after she announced her own resignation as prime minister, had been partying to Craig David's set at the Henley Festival, based on the Oxfordshire-Berkshire border.
Watch the clip of her busting a move here:
The ex-PM attended the black-tie festival with her husband Philip, and appeared to be having the time of her life as she boogied down to the DJ's song 'My Heart's Been Waiting For You'.
Other acts at this year's Henley Festival included The Script, Boney M, and Tom Jones, with Katherine Jenkins and Jack Savoretti to perform at the special closing concert this Sunday.
Tweeting the video of Theresa throwing shapes at the festival, royal biographer Omid Scobie wrote: "Theresa May living it up at the Henley Festival just hours after Boris resigned is kind of everything."
Since Boris Johnson took over from her as prime minister, Theresa May has been vocal in her criticism of his government's more recent policies.
It's rather fitting, then, that the former prime minister was dancing her heart out on the same day as Johnson's resignation.
Despite the hilarious coincidence of it all, the people of Twitter couldn't help but comment on Theresa's rather questionable moves.
"I love the way she dances it's so bad that it's good" wrote one user.
"Even Theresa loves a bit of @CraigDavid" joked a second.
"Bless her, this woman has not one bit of rhythm," tweeted another.
Boris Johnson announced his decision to resign as prime minister on Thursday, 7 July, after more than 50 Tory MPs, including Chancellor of the Exchequer Riski Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid, also resigned.
MPs called for the prime minister's resignation after Johnson confirmed that he had previously been made aware of an investigation into inappropriate behaviour from Conservative MP Chris Pincher back in 2019.
Pincher resigned last week after he was accused of groping two men, and on Monday it emerged that he had previously been investigated over his conduct three years back.
Number 10 had initially denied that Johnson knew about the claims, but a spokesperson confirmed yesterday that Johnson had been briefed on the complaint in 2019.
In his resignation speech, Boris said: "It is clearly now the will of the parliamentary Conservative Party that there should be a new leader of that party and therefore a new prime minister.
"And I've agreed with Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of our backbench MPs, that the process of choosing that new leader should begin now and the timetable will be announced next week.
"And I've today appointed a Cabinet to serve, as I will, until a new leader is in place."
Later, he rather bizarrely added: "I know that there will be many people who are relieved and perhaps quite a few who will also be disappointed. And I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world. But them's the breaks."
It is expected that Boris will likely remain in office until October, when a new leader will take over. However, many MPs are calling for the exiting prime minister to step down immediately, and hand over his role to an interim prime minister.
