Carrie Johnson announces third child with Boris
Boris and Carrie Johnson have furiously slapped down claims that they fired a nanny for having a glass of wine with the ex-PM.
Theresa Dawes, 59, says she had only been in the job three days when Carrie Johnson gave her 15 minutes to pack her things but the couple have said this is “totally untrue”.
The Johnsons deny her claims with a spokesman saying: “This account is totally untrue. It is disappointing to see someone who sought a position of trust abuse it to create a completely false story for financial gain.”
The Zimbabwean nanny claims she is owed thousands by the couple, telling the Mirror the ordeal was “a complete nightmare”. The couple, on the other hand, called the claims a “disappointing…false story”.
She believes she got fired for having a glass of rosé with Boris Johnson to celebrate the birth of Frank Alfred Odysseus, the couple’s third child, and that they were seen by Carrie’s mum Josephine.
Ms Dawes said: “It was a lovely, hot day and when Boris got home he went out onto the terrace and opened a bottle of wine. He asked me to join him, to toast baby Frank and to give me a report on Carrie and the baby, how they were doing, when they were coming home, that sort of thing.”

Carrie was still recovering in hospital but was “extremely rude” and dismissed Theresa upon her return home. She says: “She told me she didn’t think it was working and that we didn’t gel.
“She said she didn’t like the comments I’d made about her husband, when I’d told her about the other family that didn’t like him. I think that was an excuse. If she didn’t like it, why didn’t she do something two weeks earlier?”
During her first conversation with Carrie, Ms Dawes told her that a former employer had celebrated Mr Johnson’s fall after Partygate.
She said: “She told me she’d called an Uber and I had 15 minutes to go.
“I was gobsmacked. I went to find Boris in the kitchen and said, ‘I’m so sorry if I offended you’. He didn’t know what to do. He said, ‘I don’t know what to say, she’s hormonal, she’s just had a baby, it’s out of my control’.”
The nanny claims she is considering legal action to get the money she says she is owed for a three-month contract plus severance pay.

Theresa Dawes insists that nothing flirty happened with Mr Johnson, saying: “I know he’s had three wives and however many kids, but I’m not interested, he’s not my type. I don’t know if she felt threatened. I don’t know what she was thinking.
“I’d only been there for three days and I didn’t even get to hold the baby. I wish I’d never got involved with them, it’s been a complete nightmare. To be fair, it was quite a nice rosé but it definitely wasn’t worth it.”
She said the agency implied she shouldn’t have socialised with Boris: “They let slip that they didn’t think I should have had a drink with Boris.
The agency did not respond to requests for comment.
