Mr Redwood was speaking on the podium at the count to Phillip Lee, who had formerly been a Tory MP for Bracknell in the previous Parliament.

Mr Lee joined the the Lib Dems in September 2019 after resigning from the Conservatives. As an MP he had continued to practise as a GP part-time.

Mr Redwood said: “It’s great news Wokingham was offered the services of a general practitioner who has been a member of parliament in the neighbouring constituency.

"I trust we won’t lose Phillip Lee from public service as now he has the opportunity to be a full-time general practitioner.

"One of the big aims of the incoming Conservative government will be to have more doctors."

Mr Redwood polled 7,383 votes ahead of the Mr Lee, a decrease in his majority from 18,798 in 2017.

Veteran MP Sir John Redwood has been re-elected for Wokingham, a seat he has held since 1987.

Former colleagues go head to head

Conservative Sir John Redwood and former Tory Phillip Lee go head to head tonight after Mr Lee resigned over Brexit and joined the Liberal Democrats.

Sir John has held the Wokingham seat since 1987, with his latest victory in 2017 securing a large majority of 18,798, with Labour coming second.

Mr Lee said tactical voting is the "only way" to unseat his former colleague but he is competition for votes with Annette Medhurst of Labour, the Green Party's Kizzi Johannessen and Annabel Mullin of Advance Together.

Despite Sir John being a leader Brexiteer, his constituents voted 57.3% in favour of remaining in the European Union.
