David Cameron was in mischievous form for his last PMQs session before Theresa May takes over the role of Prime Minister this evening.

Cameron laughed and teased Jeremy Corbyn, saying “he’s looking absolutely splendid today,” before continuing on to settle one last rumour about his time as Prime Minister.

It has long been speculated that the 49-year-old is not a fan of the cat that resides in 10 Downing Street, however Cameron shut the rumours down by producing a photo of him sitting in an arm chair with the much-loved animal.

“This gives me the opportunity to put a rumour to rest,” he said.

“Even more serious than the Strictly Come Dancing One…”

“The rumour is that I don’t love Larry. And I do. I have photographic evidence to prove it,” he said, before displaying a photo of him and his furry friend.

The former Conservative Party leader went on to confirm that the feline will not be evicted from Downing Street upon his departure -  something that he isn’t happy about.

“Sadly, I can’t take Larry with me,” he said.

“He belongs to the house and the staff love him very much. And so do I,” he finished.

New Tory leader Theresa May and husband Phillip are set to move into Downing Street on Wednesday evening when Cameron officially hands over the keys.
