In a statement, Mr Johnson said: "This morning I went to Buckingham Palace and I am forming a new Government and people will arrive at Westminster to form a new Parliament".

The New York Times said the Conservative victory was a "resounding vindication" for Johnson, "defying predictions that he would be tossed out of a job" and that the Prime Minister "now seems assured of leading Britain through its most momentous transition since World War II".

Johnson needs to go through the process to demonstrate he has a mandate to govern the country for five years.

As results from across the country suggested the exit poll would prove correct and seat after seat in the opposition Labour party's strongholds swung from Labour red to Tory blue, Johnson's gamble on calling an early vote after long months of parliamentary deadlock over Brexit appeared to have paid off.

Johnson has been facing backlash over the period of the election.
