Carrie Johnson arrived at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester today prior to her LGBT rights speech this evening.

Mrs Johnson will deliver her address at an event put on by LGBT Conservatives who are partnering with Stonewall.

The pregnant Mrs Johnson was named 'guest of honour' at the Conservatives' Pride reception at the conference.

Elena Bunbury, chairwoman of the LGBT+ Conservatives told The Times newspaper that the PM's wife 'has always been a good sport to LGBT+ Conservatives.'

'She even judged our virtual lip-sync last conference. We’re thrilled she’ll be joining us in person this year in Manchester.'

Mrs Johnson seldom engages directly in political matters, even though she formerly held the position of Conservative Party Director of Communications.
