Steph McGovern: Pregnant BBC Breakfast star publicly takes down Boris Johnson | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Steph McGovern, 37, who is currently on maternity leave from BBC Breakfast, was hosting the Convention of the North held in Rotherham, south Yorkshire. The presenter did not hold back as she took a swipe at Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, for his comments about the former Conservative leader David Cameron being a “girly swot”, which was revealed in a leaked keynote speech. According to The Mirror, she said: "I'd just like to point out I am a girly swot, and I'm proud of it! Let's see who's in the job for longest." As the crowd at the Convention of the North laughed, she moved swiftly on with the agenda saying: "Right...so..."

McGovern’s remarks comes after it emerged last week that Boris had branded Cameron a “girly swot” in a leaked cabinet paper.

The full context of his remarks were unclear but they were branded sexist by critics.

At the Convention, McGovern asked if the PM was worried Cameron - whose memoirs will be released next week - will refer to him as something worse in the long-awaited autobiography.

Johnson replied: "I want people to be clear.

"Absolutely nothing that David Cameron says in his memoirs in the course of the next few days will diminish the affection and respect in which I hold him.

"Not least for what he did in turning this country round after Labour left it bankrupt.

"I think he has a very distinguished record and a legacy to be proud of."

Johnson also called Jeremy Corbyn a “big girl’s blouse” during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons for not agreeing to an immediate general election to break the Brexit deadlock.

The former spoke at the event and was hit with tough questions by local journalists.

The convention brings together the north’s political, business, academic and community leaders to address economic issues.
