Kathy Burke Campaigns For Linda La Hughes To Be Next Prime Minister

Kathy Burke Campaigns For Linda La Hughes To Be Next Prime Minister

In the wake of Theresa May's resignation, comedienne Kathy Burke has proposed her Gimme Gimme Gimme character Linda La Hughes as the Prime Minister's replacement.

Kathy is one of many British stars weighing in on the announcement on social media after May confirmed on Friday that she would stand down as Prime Minister on Friday, 7th June.

Putting the fictional character forward for the leadership job, Kathy photoshopped Linda behind the podium outside Downing Street and captioned the Twitter post: "Next?".

And Kathy wasn't the only one to discuss the PM's resignation with Rylan Clark-Neal branding her statement as "emotional".

The X Factor star tweeted: "So now it begins, the race for a new prime minister. Now is the time to open the doors to the big brother house so we know what we're gonna get.

"No one will be able to sort this mess out. That's the sad thing about Brexit. "Whatever option, revoke, referendum, leave with a bad deal, leave without a deal. All options will now lead to drama-rama. Hope Cameron is having a nice time wherever he is."

Elsewhere, sports presenter Gary Lineker took to the micro-blogging site and defended May.

The BBC star shared: "Whether you like her or not the truth is, Theresa May had an impossible job trying to deliver the impossible: a deal to leave that satisfied everyone's version of what leave actually meant.

"The baton will be handed on and dropped again."

Meanwhile, British rapper MoStack hilariously used May's resignation to promote his album, writing: "Theresa May resigns on the day my album drops.... thank me later."

The celebrity tweets come after Theresa May announced her resignation as Prime minister on Friday morning.

Her departure from the post was expected after backlash from her own cabinet against her latest Brexit deal.


Since January, there has been three separate rejections of Mrs May's withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU since January.

The Prime Minister met with Sir Graham Brady, the Conservative leader, at 9am this morning, before addressing the nation from Downing Street to explain her resignation.

Today, she said: "I have done everything I can to convince mps to back that deal. Sadly I have not been able to do so. I believe it was right to persevere, even if the odds seem high.

"I am today announcing that I will resign as leader on Friday 7th June. I will continue to serve as prime minister until the process is finished."
