  • Carrie Symonds speaking with Dominic Dyer at the whaling event earlier this year

Boris Johnson's partner Carrie Symonds has made her first public speech since moving into Downing Street last month.

She will then appear on a Question Time-style panel alongside guests including Chris Packham, presenter of BBC SpringWatch.

After resigning from Tory HQ, the UK's "first girlfriend" is now a marketing senior adviser at Oceana, a US-based environmental campaign group.

Tim Appleton, founder of bird-watching conference Birdfair, said Ms Symonds will give a five-minute speech on her support for conservation at the event on Friday.

She quit as director of communications for the Conservatives previous year and is now a senior adviser for United States environmental campaign group Oceana.
