Things appear to be getting a little fraught in the Boris Johnson General Election campaign after one of his minder’s swore on national TV.
Piers Morgan wanted to interview the candidate for Uxbridge live on Good Morning Britain and sent reporter Jonathan to try and get a chat.
But a minder, believed to be his press officer, turned to him with a look of disgust (perhaps because he was up early to deliver milk) and told him ‘oh, for fuck’s sake’.
Mr Swain told viewers: ‘I’ve just had a reaction here from one of the minders. Errr… okay’.
Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid looked on open mouthed with Susanna saying ‘The look on his face, that minder’, while Piers simply said ‘wow!’
Meanwhile, Mr Johnson scurried off with a crate of orange juice into a fridge.

He later added that the press officer was: ‘Obnoxious, aggressive, foul-mouthed, abusive.’
Mr Swain went on to repeatedly ask Mr Johnson an interview and he eventually relents saying he will do, but not before there were accusations of pushing and shoving.
Mr Johnson helping load milk and orange juice bottles onto a delivery vehicle in West Yorkshire on his last day of campaigning.
Asked about the narrowing polls, the Prime Minister told broadcasters: ‘This could not be more critical, it could not be tighter – I just say to everybody the risk is very real that we could tomorrow be going into another hung parliament.
‘That’s more drift, more dither, more delay, more paralysis for this country.’
Pressed on whether he was nervous, Mr Johnson replied: ‘We’re fighting for every vote.’
Mr Johnson later delivered a crate of milk and other items to a house in Guiseley.
Two bottles of milk already outside the property were removed before the PM arrived.
He knocked on the door, which was opened by civil servant Debbie Monaghan, 40, who said: ‘Look who’s here.’
She called to her husband Mark, 40, and said: ‘So nice to meet you, Prime Minister. What are you doing up so early?’
Mr Johnson said he was delivering milk, orange juice, washing up liquid and other things before reiterating campaign pledges.
Mr Monaghan, who works for Northern Powergrid, said: ‘It’s a surprise. It’s very early, I assume he’s travelled a long way but I’m going to vote Conservative so I’m quite pleased.’
