Stanley Johnson admitted he had never watched the show, and said he had not told his son, the UK foreign secretary, because he had been instructed to keep his appearance secret.

“Don’t tell me he’s going to hear about it, it’s very unlikely,” he said, according to The Sun. “Knowing Boris, he may never find out.”
