Pictures show Boris and Carrie Johnson relaxing on their sun-soaked Greek getaway before the prime minister returns to work this morning.

The ousted Tory leader was spotted laughing and waving with his wife of 15 months onboard a private boat on the picturesque Greek island of Evia.

The trip with their two children, Wilfred and Romy, comes straight after they celebrated a belated honeymoon in Slovenia.

The British leader has been criticised for being absent amid the UK’s energy bill crisis..  

He returns to Downing Street today with just two weeks left in office until either Rishi Sunak or Liz Truss becomes PM.

One local who saw the couple on vacation told The Sun: ‘They looked so relaxed. They were laughing and joking.

He read his book and she spent the time sunbathing. They got on the boat at 3.30pm and returned at 8.30pm, so they had a great time.

‘He needed help stepping off the boat when it docked late evening, so six Greek men came to his rescue.’

Mr Johnson appeared to be feeling generous as he apparently left a €50 (£42) tip for staff following a fish dinner with ‘lots of ouzo’ at a beachside cafe on Thursday.

He reportedly promised Ukrainian staff the UK would continue to support the war-torn country before posing for selfies
