Hollywood actor Rupert Everett, 60, was also in attendance, with the star cutting a debonair figure in a black suit, navy jumper and pinstriped shirt. 

Back in October, Rachel admitted that being the Prime Minister's sister meant 'a world of pain' in her appearance on the BBC's Have I Got News For You.

The avid Remainer, who has been critical of the UK's decision to leave the EU, quickly objected to being introduced as the sibling to Boris Johnson.

Ms Johnson said on the BBC show: 'I like the way you introduce me as Boris Johnson's sister as if that is actually my day job.'

She joked with panelists that being the Prime Minister's sister meant a 'world of pain'.

Host Victoria Coren Mitchell later asked Ms Johnson: 'Does Boris ever phone you up and say 'oh don't say that it's really embarrassing.'

The broadcaster and journalist - who appeared on the popular programme with Paul Merton, Ross Noble, and Ian Hislop - quickly retorted: 'Yup'.

She added that after she made the comment about No Deal Brexit only benefiting currency speculators that 'it meant Christmas Chequers was canceled.'

Ross Noble joked she could retort to her brother that 'everything you do is embarassing, goodbye.'

She then added 'No, I'm under orders to not do any chat shows, not to say anything about the Prime Minister, this is my safe space' to raucous laughter from the audience.

In a regular feature of the show, part of the show panelists were given a headline to complete that started 'Queen set to earn £100 million from (blank space).'

Ms Johnson said: 'I know, suing the Prime Minister for illegal prorogation.'
