Ryan John Butcher, an editor at PinkNews, tweeted: 'Ah good, we're at the 'must be having gay sex' stage of johnson's government it's the year 2020 and I am once again reminding comedians that belittling leaders by implying they're gay is simply homophobic.'

Others on Twitter believed the comedian was referencing that Johnson 'has a lot of affairs' and 'a history of serial s*******'.

Marc Thomas tweeted in response to Mr Butcher's critique: 'Oh I didn't see it like that. I think it's more because Boris has a lot of affairs. It's funnier that way as well.'   

Jamie Mccafferty added: 'Was implying simply , as a matter of public record , Johnson has a history of serial s******* ......no homophobia was inferred, and on reading again, still didn’t see it.'
