Brexiteers could reportedly view the move as a threat as they fear the old Etonian may team up with his former right-hand-man George Osborne to alter the political landscape. Remainer Mr Cameron, whose allies say is the only Tory leader to win a Commons majority in 27 years, is responsible for instigating the process that ultimately led to the UK voting to exit the European Union. His return to front-line politics would therefore be seen as controversial given the current Parliamentary impasse over the contentious constitutional issue.
Friends of Mr Cameron, who is spending his time giving lucrative speeches and writing his political memoirs, say he is “bone-numbingly bored” and seeking a new challenge.
The news of Mr Cameron’s reported comeback comes after former Chancellor Mr Osborne privately hinted at hopes to return to Government, according to The Mail on Sunday.
One source last night claimed friends of Mr Cameron made enquiries about him standing in Sevenoaks.
The Kent constituency is one of the safest Tory seats in the country.

However Mr Cameron last night denied the claims, saying he had no ambitions to return to the Commons.
Friends of Mr Osborne, who is the editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper, also said last night he was very happy in his current role and would be staying out of Westminster.
