BORIS Johnson has agreed to a major BBC film about his life — sparking fresh speculation he is ready to go for the Tory crown.
The ambitious London mayor has given legendary documentary maker Michael Cockerell rare behind-the-scenes access.
Mop-haired BoJo, 48, talks openly about his rivalry with PM David Cameron.
He reveals it goes back to their schooldays at posh Eton, when Boris, who is two years older than Mr Cameron, was the senior pupil.
And despite his comedy facade, BoJo — mocked up as Rambo — signals that he has the steel to take on the country’s biggest job.
A source close to the BBC2 film, which airs on March 25, called it “revealing” and “candid”.
It features an interview with the charismatic Tory’s mum, Charlotte Johnson Wahl, as well as home movie footage of Boris growing up.
But the controversial figure remains tight-lipped about rumours of extra-marital affairs.
Veteran Beeb man Cockerell has filmed celebrated profiles of ex-PMs Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, as well as David Cameron.
Describing the Boris film, the source added: “It’s a complete profile of the most popular and interesting politician in Britain.”
hey nine years on
