In his speech at the Conservative party conference home secretary Sajid Javid revealed he watched popular BBC drama the Bodyguard, but criticised the fictional home secretary Julia Montague for not doing the "power stance".

The home secretary opened his main stage speech at the Conservative party conference today by touching on the popular television series, which starred Keeley Hawes and Richard Madden.

Mr Javid said: "Now I know the question on your mind so let's just deal with it upfront - yes, I did watch Bodyguard.

"No, it wasn't very realistic. For a start, my codename is not Lavender - and she didn't even do the power stance."

Mr Javid is among a number of Conservative politicians who have been mocked for adopting an unusually wide stance for photographs, known colloquially as the 'Tory power stance'.
