Boris Johnson says he has ‘no recollection’ of a calling the French ‘turds’ in BBC documentary
At the hustings event in Exeter, it was suggested that comment was leaked by the Foreign Office, Mr Johnson replied in French saying: “Bien je jamais” or “Well I never…”

It is reported that Mr Johnson made the comment in frustration at what he saw as French intransigence in Brexit negotiations as Theresa May battled to secure a deal.
