  • The PM and wife Carrie currently let out his homes in Oxfordshire and London
  • He’s reportedly looking for a new central London home big enough for the family
  • Since leaving No10 in 2019, Theresa May has earned £2.1million in speaking fees

Boris Johnson wants to earn ‘big money’ after leaving Downing Street – because he can’t afford a home in London, according to reports.

The Prime Minister and his wife Carrie currently let out his former home in Oxfordshire and their jointly owned £1.3million townhouse in Camberwell, south London.

He is reportedly looking for a new central London home big enough for Carrie and their two young children, as bodyguards have vetoed the Camberwell property on safety grounds.

Sources told The Times that Mr Johnson, who has had to pay for two divorces, hopes to make much more than his current £164,080 salary with speaking fees and book deals.

Since leaving No10 in 2019, Theresa May has earned £2.1million in speaking fees. And when Mr Johnson quit as foreign secretary in 2019, he earned as much as £122,899.74 for a speech he made in India.

As a Daily Telegraph columnist, Mr Johnson earned £275,000 a year. He received an advance of £88,000 in 2015 for a biography of William Shakespeare – a deal reportedly worth £500,000. It is also thought he could write an autobiography.
