Probing the politician over his exit, Ben asked: “Have you managed to speak to Boris yet since you got out of the jungle and what did he make of your performance?”
“Well, is he still PM [Prime Minister],” Stanley began before quickly realising his mistake and waving at the camera: “I’m sorry, is he still Foreign Secretary? I hope he is.
“I haven’t had telephonic communication, I have had a Whatsapp communication and yes he is as thrilled as I am.”
Following the blunder Susanna and Ben could be heard giggling in the studio while viewers took to Twitter to comment on his slip-up.
One viewer tweeted: “Stanley I don’t know if Boris is still PM slip of the tongue yes… but very telling that behind all the bumbling & clowning around the Johnson’s want a new house #GMB.”
While another noted: “Freudian slip by Stanley Johnson on #GMB ‘Is Boris still PM? . . . Foreign Secretary?'”
Stanley went on to add that he doesn’t feel he had let his children or the country down with his performance in the jungle.
And addressing how he felt when he heard he had been booted out of camp, he admitted: “You know I was really disappointed not to win.
“I was totally disappointed. I gave it my best… The best man or woman will win and it has been tremendous fun.”
