On the bus travelling into Westminster with me exactly 24 hours ago was Loughborough MP Nicky Morgan. She was well aware that she was being tipped for promotion in the Cabinet reshuffle but insisted she had not received any telephone call from the Prime Minister.
What a difference a day makes! She now enters the Cabinet as the newly appointed Education Secretary. A big move for the East Midlands MP who had impressed colleagues with her performances at the despatch box as a junior Treasury minister.
Earlier this year she was also made Minister for Women - post she will retain as she takes up her new role.
Loughborough MP Nicky Morgan says she is "very excited" to be the new Education Secretary, replacing Michael Gove in the Cabinet reshuffle.
The 74-year-old told ITV News that he spent more time at the cricket test match last week than in his office.
Which female MPs from the Midlands could make it into the cabinet?
