Rachel Johnson has made clear being the Prime Minister’s sister is not her day job.

She spoke on Have I Got News For You to make clear she was about more than just her family ties.

Johnson said on the BBC show: “I like the way you introduce me as Boris Johnson’s sister as if that is actually my day job.”

She joked with panellists that being the Prime Minister’s sister meant a “world of pain”.

Johnson jokingly objected to the introduction by Victoria Coren Mitchell, who told her to remember when the Prime Minister was a panellist on the show.

Ian Hislop joked about Jonhson’s presence: “We were very excited when they said there’s a blonde woman on tonight who knows Boris intimately.

“But it could’ve been anyone really.”

Have I Got News For You continues on BBC One at 9pm tonight.
