A video of Theresa May mocked up as a Deal Or No Deal contestant has gone viral on social media.

The video, created by Rich Mayes, echoes The New European’s front cover last October when the prime minister claimed that “no deal is better than a bad deal.”

In the video she can be seen dancing to the hot seat on the Channel 4 programme and appearing alongside presenter Noel Edmonds.

Other politicians in the video clip include Boris Johnson - who’s box contains a £350m figure - and shadow home secretary Diane Abbott.

As Theresa May takes a call from EU president Jean-Claude Juncker she is seen saying “no deal” she is left with the remaining boxes on the table - a general election or a People’s Vote.

The 52 second clip, created by graphic designer and animator Rich Mayes, has had more than a million views on Facebook and Twitter in just four days.
