Asked by Suffolk News who she is supporting, Mrs Churchill said: "I have not declared for a candidate at this time and may well choose not to publicly.

"We have a lot of talent in the party.

"My job is to listen and work to ensure the final two candidates offer the country the best of that talent to lead us through these difficult times.

"I am happy as ever to receive the opinions and reflections of constituents."
