Miss Evans accepted a £500 free charity bet from bookmakers Star Sports, and has backed Leadsom at odds of 5/2. All winnings will go to her charity Lipoedema UK, which she has run since 2011.

It’s important that our next Prime Minister that believes in a United Kingdom free from the shackles of the EU, and Andrea has proved her to be so passionate about our exciting future ahead.”
