Twitter users have heaped praise on Emily Thornberry MP for her performance in Prime Minister's Questions today, with one admirer saying Caroline Quentin should play the Labour front-bencher in a film about Brexit.

The Shadow Foreign Secretary, who was standing in for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, faced off against Leader of the House David Lidington - standing in for Prime Minister Theresa May - over the Government's plans to leave the EU. 

In an impressive performance, she humiliated the Conservative minister by using his own words against him.
