An audience member has been spotted mouthing 'Bollocks to Brexit' during the Channel 4 Conservative leadership debate.

The moment was broadcast live to viewers of the debate as the camera followed Krishnan Guru-Murthy round the audience.

The broadcaster was holding the mic to an audience member - who was asking how the candidates would reunite the country after Brexit - but the young man sitting just behind him who had a simpler message.

Staring directly at the camera, he can be clearly seen mouthing "Bollocks to Brexit" while the question is asked.

As the camera moves round, he repeats it twice.
