David Cameron has reportedly spent £8,000 on a hot tub for his Cornish coastal home.

The former Prime Minister, who owns a £2 million holiday home in Cornwall, has bought a wood-fired, eco-friendly hot tub, according to The Sun.

The purchase isn’t the former PM’s first big spend - he previously splashed out £25,000 on a shepherd’s hut to write his memoirs in.

Some might think the former Tory leader should be less relaxed given the chaos that has surrounded Brexit - sparked by him calling a referendum.

A neighbour of Mr Cameron told The Sun: “Critics think he should be in hot water — but this is not what they had in mind.

“Dave can chillax to his heart’s content.”

According to the newspaper, Mr Cameron has bought the hot tub from Forestflame, which offers eco-friendly wood-fired hot tubs.

Its website said customers can enjoy “the romance of the great outdoors” and “luxuriate in the embrace of 40C water”.

Mr Cameron has reportedly finished his memoirs but they won’t be being released until later this year.
