British PM Accused of Hiding in Refrigerator to Avoid Media

As the camera focused on Johnson speaking to the owners of the dairy, Swain conceded that he was not initially scheduled to cover the prime minister's appearance there.

The British PM was trying to avoid talking to a reporter from the Good Morning Britain programme.

"Say "Come on Great Morning Britain, prime minister" if you get the chance. If you're going to mock others for hiding from our scrutiny, I suggest you practice what you preach".

GMB audiences were left stunned when Mr Johnson and his aides bizarrely retreated into the chiller while preparing for the penultimate day of campaigning - which took him from Yorkshire to Derby and then onto Cardiff.

On Wednesday morning, reporter Jonathan Swain had tried to get Mr Johnson to take part in a live interview with Mr Morgan and Ms Reid.

Mr Johnson and other political leaders have zigzagged across the country in a last-ditch push to win over millions of undecided voters who could determine the outcome of today's election.

Mr Johnson's aides were less than impressed, allegedly pushing the camera crew away and appearing to mouth the words "oh for f***'s sake" on camera.

Only last week, Andrew Neil laid down the gauntlet to Johnson by challenging him to do the BBC interview which he has so far refused to commit to, stating that it was "a question of trust" for the Prime Minister.

"We're ready to go, we're live on ITV right now". Mr Swain then said: "Do you want to tone your language down as well because people are watching this this morning".

Mr Johnson told the reporting team "I will be with you in a second" before walking into the large freezer, shadowed by his staff.

Morgan also called Mr Johnson out on Twitter, posting "You couldn't even honour a promise to do an interview, Fridge-hider". They remarked that Miliband was regularly accused of not being "tough enough" and so "what we need is a tough guy, a real strongman who'll hide in a fridge", like Johnson. The PM later emerged to help deliver crates of milk and orange juice in the Conservative-held constituency.

The results of the UK Election will be known on Friday our time.
