Another said there was a "stench of death" around Downing Street.

"It has never been my style to hide from a challenge and I'm not going to start now", it quoted Ms May as replying, in what it called a signal that she was prepared to bring in new ministers to her cabinet and axe those who had caused her problems.

Claiming the Tories are "in all sorts of trouble" over Brexit, Ms Thornberry added: "It doesn't really matter who their leader is, they don't know where they are going".

While Johnson has been publicly supportive of May, a 4,000 word Brexit manifesto he had published in the Telegraph a few weeks ago led to it being reported that he was planning to launch his own leadership bid against her.

Boris Johnson intends to "just say no" if Theresa May attempts to demote him, allies of the Foreign Secretary have said, as they warned sacking him would undermine Brexit and destabilize the government.

However over the weekend, pro-Brexit MPs hit back, urging Mrs May to get rid of Chancellor Philip Hammond, who has argued for a "softer", pro-business Brexit that would protect jobs and investment. "It seems blind to the facts, preoccupied with preserving "access" to the European Union market seemingly at any cost", he said.

Tory MP Nadine Dorries told ITV's Peston on Sunday that he has "deliberately" been trying to make Brexit talks hard and that he should be sacked by Prime Minister May.

'She very much wanted to do that before the election was called because I don't think he's been completely on board.

Eurosceptic Tory MPs turned on Hammond, saying he should be demoted instead for "deliberately trying to make Brexit negotiations hard".

"If that was just a problem for the Conservative Party I wouldn't be particularly bothered, but it's a massive problem for the country at the moment", the SNP politician added.

"Rumour is always destabilising but let me assure you the Cabinet is not divided, we are behind the Prime Minister", he told Sky News.

He went on: "We are a united Cabinet; as one behind the Prime Minister".

It is thought that May wants to demote Johnson, but is considering whether it is worth the risk of further Tory splits if the foreign secretary was sacked.

In a message this morning to Conservative MPs Mr Johnson claimed he had no idea where the briefings came from and insisted they did not speak for him. "If we fail to deliver that, the public will never forgive us".

The moves against Hammond have followed reports that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will be one of the victims of the cabinet reshuffle after his unauthorised articles on Brexit for The Telegraph and Sun newspapers.
