An LBC listener quizzed Jacob Rees-Mogg over claims he celebrated with Champagne when Theresa May’s Brexit deal was voted down this week.

The Conservative Eurosceptic described the event as a “meeting with drinks” with other rebel MPs who also voted against the government.

The Prime Minister lost the vote on Tuesday by 230 votes - the largest defeat in history.

Mr Rees-Mogg said the group had a “small tincture” to “raise their spirits”.

“I think what is known as sparkling French wine was served,” he added.
