'Theresa May' strips on stage during awkward Britain's Got Talent audition

Theresa May resigned as Prime Minister in an emotional speech yesterday, but it seems she has already got her eye on another career move.

In fact, she took time out of her busy schedule and planning Brexit to ‘secretly audition for Britain’s Got Talent’.

In the most awkward timing known to man, tonight’s show begins with Kath Thompson dancing for Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams – while dressed up as the 62-year-old.

Complete with a red blazer, black trousers and a briefcase which reads: ‘TM’ – very similar to what the actual Theresa May wore for her resignation speech.

She comes on stage to Dancing Queen while mocking the PM’s previous dancing exploits, and flossing on stage, in front of a baffled Simon.

Side note: Who could forget her ‘epic’ moves out in Nairobi…

At one point, yoga teacher Kath strips off her suit to reveal a sparkly, sequinned bodysuit before twirling EU and British flags.


‘I can’t ever unsee that,’ a shocked Declan Donnelly tells the camera.

We know how you feel, hun…

Earning a standing ovation from the judges, Simon thanks Kath/Theresa for gracing the ITV stage for an audition.

While David tells her: ‘It was one of the most fun things I’ve ever seen in my life. If this doesn’t solve Brexit I don’t know what will…’


Oh, David…

Kath’s audition will air just one day after Mrs May handed in her resignation, tearing up in an emotional speech in front of 10 Downing Street.

‘This country is a union: not just a family of four nations, but a union of people, all of us – whatever our background, the colour of our skin or who we love, we stand together and together we have a great future,’ she said.

‘Our politics may be under strain but there is so much that is good about this country.

‘So much to be proud of, so much to be optimistic about.’

Following the news, a string of people have put their name into the leadership race, in a bid to take on the job – including actual Linda La Hughes.

But we think Kath Thompson could do a decent job of replacing her, especially with those moves…

Britain’s Got Talent continues tonight, at 8pm, on ITV.
