You can’t make this up!
The UK’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, did the unthinkable and hid inside a storage fridge to avoid a TV interview, reported The Guardian. Boris was reportedly “ambushed” by Jonathan Swain, Good Morning Britain’s producer, in the midst of a visit to the Modern Milkman. Jonathan asked Boris,
“Morning prime minister, would you come on Good Morning, prime minister?”
Unfortunately, the question was met with immediate disdain as Boris’ aide was overheard saying: “Oh for f*ck’s sake”.
Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid – who are hosts of the morning show – were pretty shocked by the aide’s behaviour. A video of it was shared by the Independent UK and it has gotten over 13, 300 shares.
In the video, Jonathan was seen trying to get Boris to do a short interview. The leader of the Conservative Party responded to Jonathan saying: “I’ll be with you in a second.”

Following that, Boris walked inside a fridge which was stacked with milk bottles and his aides followed him into the fridge too. One person noted that it is, in fact, a bunker (a storage place). After Boris walked off, Jonathan laughed off the incident and commented: “It’s a very frosty reception we’ve had so far.”
But, a while later, Boris was then seen leaving the bunker (aka storage fridge) with a crate of milk.
Once the news broke, everyone on Twitter trended the hashtag #fridgegate and within an hour, there were more than 21,000 tweets about Boris’s bizarre behaviour, wrote Washington Post. Other politicians like the Leader of the Labour Party took this opportunity to ride on Boris’s icy retreat and gave “hope” to UK citizens.
