Born to be wild… Andrea Leadsom’s teen road trip on back of a motorbike

ANDREA LEADSOM revealed her ‘born to be wild’ side when she was asked yesterday to reveal the naughtiest thing she had ever done.

The former leader of the Commons told LBC she hopped on the back of a Honda motorbike as a 16-year-old for a lift from Kent to Cornwall, after telling her parents she was going by bus.

The Easy Rider is one of the favourites in the race to succeed PM Theresa May, who was widely ridiculed two years ago when she revealed her naughtiest childhood escapade was ‘running through a field of wheat’.

Mrs Leadsom, 56, tweeted a text her mum Judy sent in response to her revelation. ‘You little bugger, I hope you got a really sore bum,’ it said.
