Peter Bone has said he thinks members of the public are "braver than the politicians" when facing the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.
Appearing on the breakfast show, the Conservative MP said his constituents had told him they were "happy" to leave without securing a deal - something Parliament "needs to recognise", he claimed.

"When I knock on doors on a Saturday morning, people are ahead of the politicians as they often are. They're braver than the politicians," Mr Bone told Julia Hartley-Brewer.
"They say 'Come on! We're quite happy to leave if we can't get a deal', and I think Parliament needs to recognise that that is what the British people are saying".
The MP for Wellingborough added that he believed paying the £39 billion 'divorce bill' to the EU was "wrong".

"That's equivalent to £60 million for each constituency in the country. I bet most MPs could easily spend that sort of money improving their local constituency," he said.
"I'd get a new urgent care centre, I'd get my bypass, I'd get my roads fixed. I'd get my bridges built which are falling down."
He added: "Giving that money to the EU in return for nothing is wrong."
