Ex-PM David Cameron denies he’s helping schoolmate Boris Johnson become Prime Minister
The ex-Tory leader was reportedly spotted chatting to old school pal Boris at an exclusive London club last week.
Sources close to Cameron – who went to school and university together with Boris – denied he is backing the former Mayor of London.
The claim fuelled rumours Cameron is backing Boris, despite their major fall-out over Brexit.
But the source told The Sun it was “total rubbish” they had even met at the Carlton Club, a Conservative gentlemen’s club in London.
They were both at Eton and Oxford together and were members of the notorious Bullingdon Club while at university.
Cameron believed Boris was after his job when he was in number 10, and they disagreed about Brexit.
The former PM has been repeatedly rumoured to be eyeing a political comeback.
Cameron stepped down as Prime Minister after Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016.
Johnson has emerged as the clear frontrunner in the race to replace Theresa May.
Britain’s hapless PM agreed to step down after her Brexit deal was voted down a third time, and the Tories suffered humiliating losses in recent local elections.

Cameron is believed to have still not patched up things with former ally Michael Gove.
The pair aren’t thought to have spoken socially since Gove came out in support of Brexit.
Yesterday, Boris was slammed by fellow candidates, after he failed to appear at a televised debate on Channel 4.
An empty podium was left on the stage to represent the former Foreign Secretary.
