Mr Bridgen and Dr Mos-Shogbamimu were asked by host Kate Garraway if they thought Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage should be given a peerage. Dr Mos-Shogbamimu was unequivocal in her condemnation of the leading Brexiteer. But fellow Brexiteer Mr Bridgen thought Mr Farage should be given the honour in order to help “heal” divides in the country after Brexit. 

Kate Garraway asked Mr Bridgen: “It is the methods Mr Farage uses in harnassing a distrust of immigration and what it would mean for people’s lives. 

“In order to get that position through – do you feel he did that? Or do you see something else?”

Mr Bridgen responded: “Well, we are where we are. We want to bring our country back together. 

“And part of that is the new year’s honours list would be a useful tool…”

Mr Bridgen was then abruptly interrupted by Dr Mos-Shogbamimu.

She said: “We don’t bring our country back together!”

But Mr Bridgen continued: “This argument probably suits people like Shola to continue the argument. 

“She is someone who thrives on division.

“We are a one-nation Conservative Government moving forward!”

Dr Mos-Shogbamimu interjected: “Let me respond. It is not about thriving on arguments. 

“It is about what is right, ok? Let me make this very clear to you.

“You are talking about a man who has failed to be an MP.

“And he has led and failed in two political parties. You do not see the Brexit Party or Ukip in the House of Commons.

“When you talk about healing the divide, what in God’s name are you talking about?”

The clash comes as new Speaker of the House of Commons Sir Lindsay Hoyle has said John Bercow should be given a peerage – despite objections from Brexiteers over his impartiality during the last Parliament. 

Sir Lindsay said: “My view is every speaker has been offered a peerage, so custom and practice says that’s what’s always happened.

“It’s for others to decide that, but my view is, it’s always been offered.

“It doesn’t have to be taken but, personally, I think if that has always happened then we should continue with that. My view is personally I think it should be offered to him.”
