Boris Johnson’s faithful ally Nadine Dorries stuck by the prime minister even as his other loyalist supporters fled.

Only on Tuesday, she tweeted that she was 100% behind the prime minister, and on Wednesday she claimed Johnson had a plan to “stabilise government”.

Less than 24 hours later, his premiership has all come crashing down – which might mean she’ll be out of a job under a new prime minister.

It’s worth remembering Dorries once revealed she would only stop supporting Johnson if he “kicked a dog”.

Last month, she went out of her way to tell the prime minister’s sister Rachel Johnson that she does not fancy him even “a bit”, even though memes of her gazing at the Tory leader in PMQs have gone viral.

When the ministerial resignations started streaming in this week, people began to joke that Dorries would be appointed to all of the senior positions in cabinet.

The culture secretary was pictured standing front and centre, next to Johnson’s wife, Carrie, as the prime minister announced his resignation.

Now Johnson is finally on his way out of Downing Street, it’s no surprise that everyone is wondering how Dorries is feeling.

Twitter has left no stone unturned in guessing how the culture secretary might be reacting, touching on everything from her words to Johnson’s daughter to reinventing Simpson memes.

Here’s a roundup of the most hilarious – and most scathing – takes:
