Mr Johnson, who was the Conservative MP for Henley from 2001-2008, told the FT Magazine: "During the whole Syria thing, for the first time in years I wished I was in Parliament.

"I watched that and I thought... I wished. I wished."

Earlier this year Mr Johnson admitted that he would like to "have a crack" at being the Prime Minister "'if the ball came loose from the back of a scrum".
