– Peter Johns wrote his daughter a book called 'How to live'

Peter Johns was told his daughter Meg would never make it to her 18th birthday after she was diagnosed with a rare cancer aged just nine.

He might have said he wanted his life back after the EU referendum, but Nigel Farage seems to have been non-stop ever since.
