It is also alleged that Doyle presented ‘thank you awards’ to the number 10 staff at this event, which took place just two days after London entered a lockdown where social events and the mix of different households were prohibited.

Along with Doyle’s purported awards, an anonymous BBC source claimed there was food, drink and board games at the event.

Addressing the accusations and images during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQ) on Wednesday, Mr Johnson continued to deny knowledge of a party, saying: were broken, and I was assured many times.

Following the announcement of Doyle’s presence, Downing Street appears to have flipped on its previous position of denying that a party took place, and instead opened a review of the alleged event.
