Rishi Sunak confesses her love for Jilly Cooper's Bonkbuster books

The PM said he was a big fan of the Rutshire Chronicles series, which includes Polo

He made this remark, when asked about what he regrets the most. He joked that his biggest regret right now is having to discuss his passion for spicy romance.

He added: “It is not clear to me how this happened. I am a true fan. She has written many different books, this is a set of books that I like. There should be escapism in your life, and that's good. You need to be able to escape from everyday life, whether it be books or TV.”

He also revealed that he is a fan of another Netflix show, Bridgerton, a romantic series about upper-class families in Regency London.

Mr Sunak said, when he told the chancellor that “all my favorite books are fiction”, but because of the harsh work, he had little time to read.
