The Mayor of London confirmed he wanted to stand for Parliament earlier this month, with David Cameron saying it was "great news" that one of his "star players" was returning to the Commons.

Mr Johnson said he hoped to "make his case" that he was the best person to represent the constituency, held by Sir John Randall with a majority of 11,000 at the last general election.

"I'm sure there will be plenty of excellent candidates and I hope very much to make my case to the association," he told the Evening Standard.
