But fans pointed out that Emily had stated she would “be back tomorrow”, leaving them wondering whether she was “replaced” for the evening or not.
During Tuesday’s instalment of Newsnight, the presenter said the country was “shocked” that the government had sided with Cummings and that the “public mood” was “one of fury, contempt and anguish”.
She added that his actions had made individuals abiding by the strict rules “feel like fools”.

Tonight we consider what this blind loyalty tells us about the workings of Number 10.”
