He had just hours earlier met with the Queen to form a government – urging closure over Brexit and naming the NHS as a priority into the future.

Mr Johnson urged “everyone to find closure and to let the healing begin”, adding that “the overwhelming priority of the British people is that we should focus, above all, on the NHS”.

In a speech to congratulate activists at CCHQ Boris said the country had given him a “stonking mandate” and the Tories had created a political “earthquake”.

And he seemed ready to celebrate as he headed to the star-studded event last night.

The impressive list of invitees also included Mick Jagger, and royal sisters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, who was joined by her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Other big names pictured heading to the Christmas do included model and once Tory supporter Daisy Lowe, alongside singer James Blunt, Eddie Izzard, David Hasselhoff and Janet Street-Porter.

The exclusive event, hosted by Evening Standard and Independent owner Mr Lebedev every year, saw Christmas trees line the stairs of the north London property.

David Cameron and his wife Samantha were also pictured heading inside – just hours after the former PM praised Mr Johnson on the “extraordinary result”.

Showbiz stars also included Matt Smith, Daisy Lowe, David Hasselhoff and Anna Friel as well as Mr Johnson’s sister Rachel.

Many donned festive dresses for the occasion, dressing to impress for the big night.

Last year’s party theme was Vodka and Caviar.

It was a night to remember for Mr Johnson after the Tories knocked down the Red Wall to win a majority government.

The PM today vowed to “give Britain its mojo back” so the country could “stand tall” as his first 100 days started.

Speaking in Tony Blair’s old constituency – seized from Labour in the election as the Tories smashed through the ‘Red Wall’ in the North – the Prime Minister said he would take the country on a “wonderful adventure”.

Boris is on a victory lap of the North today as he thanked voters in Labour’s heartland who turned staunch red seats blue – many for the first time in their history.

Speaking in Sedgefield – one of the 27 to succumb to the blue wave – Mr Johnson jubilantly ticked off the constituencies the Tories had won over.

The significance of the Tory leader standing in Blair’s old seat after presiding over a majority not seen since New Labour will resound with shockwaves across the country.

“We are going to recover our national self confidence – our mojo,” he told supporters at the town’s cricket club.

“It’s going to be a wonderful, wonderful time for the country. Our country will stand tall in the world.”

The Prime Minister secured a sweeping 80-seat majority on Thursday – meaning the UK is now on track to leave the EU in less than two months.

Johnson has already guaranteed an extra £33.9bn a year to the NHS by 2023 – one of his ten key election pledges.

Setting out his first plans for Government, the PM is expected to reintroduce his Brexit deal in the Commons next week following the Queen’s Speech and State Opening of Parliament on Thursday.

He has already started work on picking up relations with key European leaders, speaking by phone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
