    BBC Breakfast welcomed former conservative MP Nadine Dorries who dropped a big bombshell on air.

    On Thursday (November 9), the Former Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport chatted to hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty on the show. Nadine featured on the show to promote her new book titled The Plot: The Political Assassination of Boris Johnson, and she also exposed him further on the show.

    She revealed that when she last appeared on the show, the ex-Prime Minister had specifically asked her not to say anything to presenter Charlie.

    Nadine went on to reveal that she "freaked out" during their last chat as she thought the hosts overheard her on a call to Boris before their interview was set to him – as she was mic'd up.

    At the end of the interview, Nadine asked: "Is this one going to go viral Charlie?" Naga replied: "Well, only the internet can do that."

    Charlie added: "Well, is there something else you want to say?" Nadine replied: "I'd prefer that to the Zoom call last time." Charlie then asked how that moment was last time, and this is where Nadine revealed she was banned from telling the hosts anything on her last visit to the show.

    Nadina said: "The thing is, I've never told you is, that the first question you asked me was 'Have you spoken to the Prime Minister?' I'd literally 30 seconds before put the phone down on him. And I thought you'd heard me and that sort of freaked me out. So when you said 'Have spoken to the prime minister?' I was like 'What? Has he just overheard me?' I just put the phone down with the mics on. So that's what happened."

    Charlie then asked: "You know what I'm gonna have to ask now. What was the nature of that conversation?"

    Nadine then confessed: "He said 'You're about to go on breakfast TV. Do not say anything to Charlie state'."

    BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC1.
