Who are Boris Johnson’s parents?
Boris’ dad Stanley was born in Penzance, Cornwall, in 1940.
He is a British politician and was Conservative MEP for Wight & Hampshire East from 1979 to 1984.
He has also written dozens of books, including an autobiography titled Stanley, I Resume.
Stanley also previously worked for the World Bank and the European Commission.
In December 2017, he shocked the nation by signing up for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, but failed to win over the public and was evicted from the jungle well before it ended.
But during his time on the show, he made firm friends with Made In Chelsea star Georgia “Toff” Toffolo.
He’s been spotted a few times on the SW3 show giving her the benefit of his sage advice and the pair appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox together.
The famous dad went on to star in the third series of The Real Marigold Hotel where he joined a group of ageing celebrities seeking out an alternative retirement in India, as well as The Chase and Celebrity Hunted.
Charlotte Johnson Wahl
Boris’ mum is a well-respected painter with a host of high flying clients.
Charlotte Johnson Wahl was born in Oxford in 1942, the daughter of Sir James Fawcett – the president of the European Commission for Human Rights.
She met Stanley at Oxford University, where she studied English, but was already engaged to another student named Wynford Hicks at the time.
Things must have fallen apart however, as Charlotte married Stanley in 1963 – though they later divorced in 1979.
As an artist, Charlotte mainly specialises in portraits, but she also paints landscapes.
Her clientele include Crispin Tickell, Joanna Lumley, Jilly Cooper and Simon Jenkins.
Despite marrying a Tory and having four Tory children, Charlotte has revealed she has never voted Conservative.
She has previously claimed to be “very left”, having grown up with “socialist” parents.

Leo is married to Taies Nezam, whom he met while working at the World Bank.
The couple have two two daughters.
