This comes after weeks of unpleasant stories concerning lockdown gatherings and criticism over his unwillingness to heed scientists' recommendations ahead of Christmas.
On Monday night, fans crowded into Alexandra Palace in London for the 2022 PDC World Darts Championship.
Experts warned of “Covid on steroids”. On Monday, a two-hour cabinet discussion on new Covid limitations ended with no resolution, leaving millions of people and businesses in limbo.
Prof Keith Neal, a public health expert at the University of Nottingham, said the championship should not have gone ahead with supporters present. “They won't be wearing masks because they are drinking,” he said.
But the failure of Downing Street to apologise for an image showing him, his wife and up to 17 staff apparently drinking during the first lockdown in May 2020 appears to have put his face back on the public dartboard.
