Speaking on BBC, the foreign secretary said: "I don't have any issue with how expensive anybody else's clothes are, and actually I think Rishi is a very finely dressed person, and I'm a great admirer of his dress sense."

"I don't know how she knows where I got my earrings, to be perfectly frank about it," referring to Dorries' remark about her "£4.50" jewelry.
