The start of Johnson’s campaign has been overshadowed by his refusal to answer questions about his private life.

He has struggled to get back on track since police were called to a late-night row at the home he shares with partner Carrie Symonds.

In an interview with LBC earlier today, Johnson refused to deny a photo released depicting him and Symonds looking happy together had actually been taken before the argument.

And he also dodged questions about whether he knew the photo was going to be handed to the media.

“I am not going to comment on the antiquity or the provenance of some photo,” he said.
