Daily Star lettuce as likely as Gary Neville to become PM after Liz Truss quits

The country's favourite lettuce is just as likely to roll into Number 10 as Gary Neville and Roy Keane.

Daily Star's 60p veg from Tesco has officially outlasted Liz Truss after the under-fire Prime Minister announced her resignation this afternoon (October 20).

A series of U-turns – including completely ripping up her mini-budget – as well as high-level resignations and infighting within the party have put an end to her premiership.

In a speech outside Downing Street, she said: "I recognise, given the situation, I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.

"I have therefore spoken to His Majesty the King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party."

Bookmakers have been quick to price up the odds on our beloved lettuce making its bow.

Paddy Power reckon it has a 500/1 chance to make it to Number 10. Man Utd legend and Tory critic Gary Neville – who has already demanded a General Election – are the same odds as is former teammate and hardman Roy Keane.

Iconic manager Neil Warnock is also 500/1 having previously joked about the cabinet he would create.

Our lettuce shot to international fame after we launched a contest seeing whether it would outlast the PM.

Labour's Chris Bryant, who last night told Sky News he saw Conservative MPs being "bullied" to vote in line with the Government in the fracking vote, today said: "We don't have a government, the lettuce might as well be running the country."

Vladimir Putin seemed to be keeping tabs on the latest developments in UK politics by watching the lettuce after it appeared on Russian state TV.

The winning vegetable has even joined Cameo where fans can have a personalized messages sent to them for just £13.

It also marched down to Parliament and Number 10 earlier this week to call for the PM to hand in her lettuce of resignation.
