Ms Rudd, forced to quit over the Windrush migrants fiasco, revealed she may throw her hat into the ring if there is a leadership contest in future, adding: “Don’t write me off yet.”

Asked if she could be the ex-Foreign Secretary’s running mate, she replied: “The other way round!”

She insisted that the fact she is a Remainer would not damage her leadership credentials.

Ms Rudd added: “Just because I campaigned for Remain doesn’t mean my view on what Brexit we get is less relevant than Jacob Rees-Mogg’s.

“He and his supporters are not the keepers of the sacred Brexit text.”
