"I think it's been apparent for some time that she would not be fighting the next election in 2022", said Shapps.

'They are Remainers, they are Brexiteers, ' he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

But a speech meant to strengthen her tenuous grasp on leadership was interrupted by a comedian who handed May an unemployment form.

Her aides sought to spin the speech as showing May's human side, countering the image of her being a "Maybot" who uttered scripted lines and answers during her election campaign.

Grant Shapps has admitted he was trying to coordinate an attempt to bring about a leadership contest, saying he had the support of around 30 MPs, including five former cabinet ministers.

After Ms May's bungled election, her failure to unite the cabinet and a poor party conference, "the writing is on the wall", he said.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid backed his fellow Cabinet member, saying Ms Rudd's comments were "spot on".

In a Conservative Party conference address, May vowed economic help for struggling families for whom "the British Dream that has inspired generations of Britons feels increasingly out of reach".

"In light of this we will be reviewing the accreditation process with the Conservative Party".

"Grant has many talents but one thing he doesn't have is a following in the party, so I really think this is now just going to fizzle out".

A former interior minister, May came to power last year after her predecessor David Cameron stepped down in the wake of the Brexit referendum in which he had campaigned for Britain to stay in the European Union., p Her position was badly weakened in this year's general election.

Gove added: "The truth is that the entirety of the cabinet want the prime minister to concentrate on doing the job".

He was angrily denounced by MPs loyal to the prime minister, with Mr Walker dismissing his supporters as a "coalition of the disappointed" who had been overlooked for promotion.
