  • Rishi Sunak From ‘mum’s tiny chemist shop’ to Chancellor

Javid was immediately replaced by his 39-year-old deputy, Rishi Sunak, a former investment banker and Brexit supporter who is seen as close to Johnson.

U.K. Treasury chief Sajid Javid resigned Monday, in a shock development on the day that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is shaking up his Conservative government.

Mr Sunak will take the job having agreed to a joint Number 10-Number 11 team of aides.

But investors piled into sterling in the hope Sunak - chief secretary to the Treasury and an ally of Number Ten - will deliver a more radical budget to kick-start the economy.

In addition, Downing Street pet "Larry the Cat" assured the public that he was in good spirits having said "thanks, but no thanks" to being offered a new role within cabinet.

Great Yarmouth MP and former party chairman Brandon Lewis will take over from sacked minister Julian Smith as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.

But there have been reports that the former City of London banker, born into a working-class Muslim family, had clashed with both the prime minister and his influential adviser, Dominic Cummings.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said that preparations for the Budget would continue under the new Chancellor.

Paul Dales, chief United Kingdom economist at Capital Economics, said: 'The unexpected resignation of Sajid Javid and the promotion of Rishi Sunak could mean that fiscal policy will provide an even bigger boost to GDP growth over the next few years than we already expected.

Smith had been widely praised for helping to end political deadlock that left Northern Ireland without a regional government and assembly for three years.

Priti Patel and Dominic Raab have remained in their positions as Home Secretary and Forgeign Secretary respectively. Others were promoted, including Suella Braverman to the position of attorney general and Anne-Marie Trevelyan to the post of worldwide development secretary.

Until Mr Javid's exit, the most surprising move by the Prime Minister had been the sacking of Mr Smith just weeks after brokering the deal which restored the powersharing administration in Stormont.

But allies of the axed minister said it was "absolute crap" to suggest Johnson and Number 10 had not been kept informed of the process and details of the deal.

Former culture secretary Baroness Nicky Morgan had already said she was leaving her role, while Leadsom, Villiers and McVey were all sacked.

Former Tory leadership contender Ms McVey said she was "very sorry to be relieved of my duties".
