Josh has regularly appeared on the Channel 4 reality show since 2013 but now he’ll be swapping commenting on the latest TV shows to knuckle down in the government offices.

He will one of more that 2,000 staff who work with Prime Minister Theresa May and her cabinet.

A source told The Mirror: “Channel 4 will, of course, keep the door open for him but it’s a really exciting opportunity for him.”It’s a much coveted job. Josh has already started having meetings within No.10.”

However, the rest of his family will be keeping the sofa warm with his dad Jonathan, who works as a chauffeur, his nursery teacher mum Nikki and his sister Amy, 17 and continue to appear on the show.

The source added: “The Tappers are one of the show’s favourite families and Channel 4 really wanted them to carry on, even without Josh. The family are very proud of him.”
