Boris Johnson is set to give a resignation speech today after a series of scandals and a wave of cabinet resignations that put pressure on his leadership.

The Prime Minister is likely to stand down as Conservative leader, but intends to carry on the role until the autumn.

The news follows a dramatic 48 hours which saw dozens of ministers — including Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Health Secretary Sajid Javid and newly appointed Education Secretary Michelle Donelan.

While the nation is waiting for the resignation statement, Daily Star has pulled out a video that could give readers a glimpse of his life after stepping down.

In an interview he did with TalkRadio in 2019, the then frontrunner to replace ex Prime Minister Theresa May shared his hobbies to "switch off" from work.

Ross Kempsell, who was the political editor at TalkRadio, asked: "In your personal lifestyle, what do you do to relax? What do you do to switch off?"

Boris gazed into space and stuttered: "I like to paint. Or I make things. I have a thing where I make… models of buses."

Ross, trying to hold back and not to laugh, repeated: "You make models of buses?"

"I make models of buses," Boris said. "What I make is, I get old, I don’t know, wooden crates, and I paint them.

"It’s a box that’s been used to contain two wine bottles, right, and it will have a dividing thing. And I turn it into a bus.

“So I put passengers – I paint the passengers enjoying themselves on a wonderful bus – low carbon, of the kind that we brought to the streets of London, reducing C02 , reducing nitrous oxide, reducing pollution."

Looking shocked, Ross paused and replied: "You are making cardboard buses and that's what you do to enjoy yourselves?"

The interview left viewers scratching their heads as some found the future Prime Minister "weird".

Brian Klaas, associate professor in global politics at UCL, tweeted at that time and wrote: "This is truly weird. Boris Johnson, likely the next Prime Minister of the UK, gets asked what he likes to do in his free time, to relax.

"Watch what he says…it's so bizarre that it's mesmerizing."

Another shared: "I have thought about this a lot and I have realised that this is exactly how my three-year-old son would answer this question."
