Boris Johnson was born on June 19, 1964 in New York City, New York, USA as Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson. He is known for his work on Have I Got News for You (1990), EastEnders (1985) and PMQs (2010).

He has been married to Carrie Johnson since May 29, 2021. They have one child. He was previously married to Marina Wheeler and Allegra Mostyn-Owen.

He is a British Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP) and an outspoken Euroskeptic who led the campaign for Great Britain and Northern Ireland to leave the European Union in the 23 June 2016 Referendum.

He studied at Eton College, Elton, Berkshire, England, and read Classics at Balliol College, University of Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England. During his time at Oxford he was the President of the Oxford Union, a prestigious role held by many top British politicians.

Boris Johnson's turbulent tenure as Britain's Prime Minister came to an end Thursday after a historic party revolt over a series of ethics scandals forced him to step down.

It took the resignation of nearly 60 members of his government -- almost half the payroll -- for Johnson to finally abandon his attempts to cling on to power.

Even then, the Prime Minister insisted that he would continue as caretaker leader while the Conservative Party launches the process of choosing a successor.

Some senior figures in his party say even that will be unsustainable, given the dwindling number of people willing to work for him.

Speaking in front of the famous 10 Downing Street door, the same place where many of his predecessors delivered their own resignation address, Johnson announced that he would be stepping down -- without actually saying the words out loud.
