Tom also backed up Liam Fox, who came under fire for saying that making a trade deal with the EU should be the "easiest in history."

"That's not what I think he was saying" he said.

"I think he was saying that when you start from a place of pretty much perfectly aligned on various issues, to roll it over, to start those negotiations and to get this good deal, should be pretty easy.

"Politics will get in the way of course, but it should be the easiest in human history because frankly its in everyone's interests for it to happen smoothly."
