Theresa May and the Conservatives are facing a "completely catastrophic" General Election result, George Osborne has warned.
Reacting to an exit poll suggesting the Tories had fallen short of an overall majority, the former Chancellor said the election outcome stood on a "knife edge".
He warned that Mrs May would find it difficult to form a coalition with the other political parties, with the Conservatives predicted to win 314 seats.
"If the poll is anything like accurate, this is completely catastrophic for the Conservatives and for Theresa May," Mr Osborne said.
"It's difficult to see, if these numbers were right, how they would put together the coalition to remain in office."
Theresa May is expected to receive a frosty reception when she meets the 1922 Committee later. But what do we know about the group?
The Prime Minister appointed her former leadership rival as Environment Secretary as she confirms her new top team.
He insisted he would be backing Theresa May as leader and has warned MPs to "calm down and get behind the Prime Minister".
