Comedian Lee Mack lashed out at Prime Minister Boris Johnson while hosting the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace over Partygate in what became his second embarrassing moment of the anniversary celebration.

Comedian Lee Mack shed light on the Partygate scandal in Downing Street during the concert in front of Buckingham Palace to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation.

Speaking to the Prime Minister in attendance, who was sitting in the royal box, Mack welcomed everyone to Buckingham Palace and described it as the ‘party of a lifetime’.

He explained how lucky everyone was to be able to perform on stage in front of the gates of Buckingham Palace. Mack then joked, “Finally we can say the words ‘party’ and ‘gate’ and it’s positive.”

The joke sparked cheers and laughter from the crowd.

Last month, an investigation published by senior official Sue Gray revealed details of a large number of Covid-offending gatherings in No 10 and Whitehall.

The investigation found that on some occasions there had been excessive drinking, with staff falling ill, arguing and spilling red wine along the walls.

The prime minister was found to have attended a number of farewell rallies for aides, giving speeches and drinking alcohol, despite telling the public not to meet loved ones in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.

Johnson, along with his wife Carrie and Chancellor Rishi Sunak, were fined by police for attending the Prime Minister’s surprise party in Downing Street in June 2020, when coronavirus laws banned several households from mixing indoors.

Mack’s partygate joke came just a day after Mr Johnson was booed by some parts of a crowd gathered outside St Paul’s Cathedral.

The Prime Minister, after arriving with his wife at a national thanksgiving service for the Queen on Friday, was booed by some people who had gathered outside the church.
