“Well he, as far as I can see, he was in a sense, ambushed with a cake. They came to his office with a cake, they sang ‘happy birthday’, he was there for 10 minutes,” Burns told Channel 4's Cathy Newman.
So given this 2016 clip resurfacing, it seems Johnson has a history of being "ambushed" with cakes.
Of course, there was plenty of reaction on Twitter as people couldn't quite believe the irony of the cake coincidence and noted how the clip hasn't exactly aged well.
Boris actually being ambushed with a cake by @Peston & it\u2019s only Allegra Stratton pic.twitter.com/6m0nn2SBE9
The irony of having in one @Peston clip: Allegra #Stratton providing cake for Boris #Johnson. \n\nShe resigned over #partygate. He is being investigated by the Police, and by Sue Gray, about it. \n\nWill he also resign before he is pushed by his Tory MPs?https://twitter.com/guidofawkes/status/1486379655972233223\u00a0\u2026
