Boris Johnson will arrive at the Tory party conference in Birmingham shortly, ahead of his speech tomorrow.
This year, Mr Johnson will address the conference, not only as the capital's Conservative Mayor, but also as their candidate for the safe seat of Uxbridge and South Ruislip at the General Election in May.
Yesterday the Prime Minister described the Mayor as "a star" and admitted he would welcome him back into the Cabinet, once his term at City Hall finishes.
The election for the 687th Lord mayor of London will take place today. The new candidate will replace Fiona Woolf who became only the second woman to hold the ceremonial position.

Rushanara Ali said that she shared other MPs' revulsion at the "horrific and barbaric" actions of IS - also known as Isil or Isis - but was concerned that military action would create further bloodshed for the people of Iraq.
The Bethnal Green and Bow MP was appointed a frontbench spokeswoman on education last year, having previously served as shadow minister for international development.
In a letter to Mr Miliband ahead of the vote on Iraq, Ms Ali said:
"I understand the case that has been made and will not be voting against the motion. But I am unable in conscience to support the motion and I will make a deliberate abstention."
Labour MP Rushanara Ali has resigned from the party's front bench in order to abstain in the vote over military action in Iraq.
