Johnson was delivering milk to voters in Yorkshire as part of a photo opportunity early Wednesday morning when he was approached by Jonathan Swain, a reporter for Good Morning Britain, a daily program.

As of Wednesday morning, nearly 21,000 tweets have been shared with regards to the video, and the hashtag #fridgegate becoming the top trend in Britain. "I think it's right that politicians are held to account - why does Boris Johnson think he's above the rest of us?" Sources have also insisted to The Mirror that Oxley was venting "general frustration" during the encounter and was not directing his expletive toward Swain specifically.

While Boris Johnson has stayed away from the public and the scrutiny of interviewers to avoid embarrassment, Jeremy Corbyn drew enormous crowds in towns and cities all over the United Kingdom, with whistlestop visits to Glasgow, Bristol, Pendle, Middlesborough, Carlisle, Worcester, Morecambe among others.

Mr Johnson was followed by cameras as he walked into a fridge. "I've come here with a message of hope".

The video then cuts back to seemingly stunned show hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid who utter "oooh!" in unison as footage continues to emerge of Johnson and his team giving reporter the cold shoulder.

His aide swears at ITV's reporter after he challenges the prime minister.

Morrison gets stuck in a building because of smoke from bushfires he is doing fuck all about, Trump waxes at-length about how he believes regulations are causing people to need to flush toilets between 10 and 15 times, and, now, Johnson hides in a fridge to avoid answering questions from reporters.

He was then seen walking away after loading crates into a vehicle at Greenside Farm Business Park.

Johnson subsequently told him that he would be "with you in a second" before disappearing into a walk-in fridge and not returning.

In a series of tweets, Mr Morgan accused the Prime Minister of "cowardice" and called him a "fridge-hider".
