It’s official, 48 letters of no confidence have been submitted to the chairman of the 1922 committee, Graham Brady, triggering a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister this evening. If she loses this, she will be required to stand down and a Conservative leadership election will begin.

As James reports on Coffee House, already the next potential leaders of the Tory party are jostling to take Theresa May’s place. But any Tory MP who wants to take the Conservative Party throne has a tough ride ahead. First, they have to be popular among their fellow MPs, in an internal election that narrows the process down to two candidates. Then, after hustings, they have to win a vote among Conservative grassroots members.

So, who are the runners and riders to be the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom? Below are the odds for the next permanent leader of the Conservative Party (courtesy of Ladbrokes):
