The 61-year-old uploaded the post alongside a thumbs up emoji in view of his 3.6 million followers.

Many flocked to his post backing the comedian to become the new leader. 

Poet.howard commented: “Everyone in the UK voted, he’s now the new Prime Minister.”

Tonyh_sladegreen wrote: “Least we’d get rid of the b******t and see some plain speaking… got my vote.”

Lewis__coombes added: “You’d set the country straight within a week!”

Piers went on to say Rishi Sunak is now the “right person” to lead the country.

Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha also joined in with the Prime Minister posts.

Like Ricky, she photoshopped a picture of herself outside the leader’s official residence.

She commented: “Everyone else has had a go. Let’s roll the [dice] My turn. After all it’s all just a game isn’t it? Isn’t it?”

Many backed the idea of Nadia running the country including Katie Piper, who wrote: “Why not, you would be great.”

Other stars mocked Liz’s exit on social media. 

On Twitter, Iain Stirling wrote: “Liz Truss’s reign as Prime Minster was shorter than a series of Love Island.”

Richard Osman commented: “No-one used to resign until I resigned from ‘Pointless’. Now they’re all at it. I think I made it cool.”

Gary Lineker typed: “Another Prime Minister resigns. Would you fracking believe it?”

A new Prime Minister will be announced next week.
