DESPITE having a Prime Minister for a brother, Rachel Johnson has managed to make a name for herself in her own right.
Sister to Boris, Rachel's profile has grown over the years following her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother – and now looks to reach the final of Celebrity Best Home Cook.
Who is Rachel Johnson?
The only daughter of Stanley and Charlotte Johnson, Rachel has three siblings who, like her, have all excelled in their chosen careers.
Born in September 1965, Rachel was raised and educated in both the UK and Brussels as her father worked for the European Parliament.
While studying at Oxford, she edited the famous student newspaper Isis – which has also been edited in the past by former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor George Osborne.
What is Rachel Johnson's job?
After leaving university, Johnson pursued a career in journalism and has worked for the Financial Times and the BBC, along with writing columns for several other newspapers.
Rachel is no stranger to TV cameras either and regularly appears on discussion panels, including Question Time and Sky News' The Pledge.
More recently, she has gotten involved in politics, joining anti-Brexit party Change UK in 2019.
She has also starred in Celebrity Big Brother and in 2021, Rachel featured on Celebrity Best Home Cook.
What has Rachel said about her brother Boris Johnson and Brexit?
In September 2019 Rachel branded her brother Boris "reprehensible" after a tirade against Remainers in the House of Commons in which he accused them of passing a "surrender act".
She said it was "not helpful" for her sibling to blame Parliament for his Brexit difficulties, and claimed that he used the Commons dispatch box as a "bully pulpit".
It came as furious Labour MPs demanded Boris apologise after he said the "best way to honour the memory" of Jo Cox is for Parliament to "get Brexit done" as John Bercow condemned the "toxic" House of Commons.
Did Rachel Johnson strip off on Sky news?
In February 2019 Rachel left her co-hosts blushing as she whipped her top off and introduced Sky News show The Pledge apparently topless.
She said she was inspired by a Cambridge professor Victoria Bateman's naked appearance on BBC Radio 4 and GMB.
Rachel told viewers: “As I know it can be hard to get your voice heard about Brexit nowadays.
“It feels like we’ve hit saturation point. Enter pro-EU campaigner Victoria Bateman who’s come up with a striking way this week to get herself noticed.
“Appearing across the media completely starkers to make various points about Brexit – leaving Britain naked.
“So in tribute to Dr Bateman I’ve decided to follow suit – every time we decide to talk about Brexit just to make sure I get noticed.”
When was Rachel on Celebrity Big Brother?
Rachel took part in Celebrity Big Brother 2018, where she also seemed fascinated by boobs after asking to see India Willoughby's breasts – TWICE.
The journo also showed off her "s**t drop" and had her toes sucked by Andrew Brady.
She became the second housemate to be evicted.
Is Rachel Johnson married?
Rachel is married to Ivo Dawnay, who works for the National Trust.
The couple has three children – Oliver, James and Charlotte.
She splits her time between London and Exmoor.
