ITV commissions a one-off documentary looking at Theresa May's tumultuous three years as Prime Minister.

ITV has commissioned a new one-off documentary exploring Theresa May's tumultuous time as Prime Minister.

May - the MP for Maidenhead - succeeded David Cameron in the top job following the 2016 Brexit vote and was ousted three years later in favour of Boris Johnson.

Theresa May: The Accidental PM will include an exclusive interview with May herself, as well as accounts from friends and opponents, including Suella Braverman, Gavin Barwell and Amber Rudd.

Tom Giles, ITV's controller of current affairs, said: "We wanted to produce a film that not only provides a vivid insight into a tumultuous period of recent British history, with ramifications that are still continuing, but that explores a woman who became a leading figure in British politics in over a quarter of a century as MP, Party Chairman, Home Secretary and Prime Minister."

The one-hour doc is scheduled to air on ITV in June.
