Speaker's bathroom routine becomes unlikely PMQs topic

The Commons Speaker's bathroom routine has become an unlikely topic at Prime Minister's Questions.

Conservative MP Rebecca Pow was speaking about micro-beads in cosmetics, which can harm marine life, but began by suggesting that Speaker John Bercow probably "took a shower this morning".

Theresa May said she did not know the answer to that particular question, prompting Mr Bercow to say that his wife, Sally, and Mrs May's husband Philip would be "very reassured" about that.
