Culture Secretary John Whittingdale has bet £1,000 that David Cameron will remain Prime Minister even if the British people go against his wishes in June's referendum and vote for Britain to exit the EU.
Mr Whittingdale, one of six ministers to declare for the Brexit campaign, denied his leader's position would be untenable if he was defeated on the issue.
He accepted the bet for charity with presenter Piers Morgan on ITV's Good Morning Britain:
Morgan later confirmed the wager on Twitter:
Just bet @jwhittingdale £1000 on air that Cameron won't be PM if he loses EU referendum. He accepted... eventually.
David Cameron has warned that Britain has "100 days to secure our future", as a poll suggests the final result hangs in the balance.
The EU referendum is a choice between "the devil and the deep blue sea", one of the UK's most senior business leaders is to say today.
Britain's car industry is an economic success story, and with uncertainty over the impact of Brexit, it wants to stay put.
