Sue Gray has been told Carrie Johnson held a “Winner Takes it All ABBA party” at Downing Street on the day Dominic Cummings quit. The party took place on November 13, 2020, while the rest of the country were confined to their houses during the second national lockdown.

The ABBA “victory party” is believed to have been held to mark the resignation of Dominic Cummings, while guests played “The Winner Takes it All” in celebration.

Mr Cummings is believed to have resigned as the PM’s de facto chief of staff after losing a power struggle with Mrs Johnson.

Despite the shocking claims of another No 10 party to add to the list, The Mirror reported that Boris Johnson is “privately reassured” he will not be forced out by his MPs once the Gray report comes to light.

According to reports, the tipsy Downing Street staff and partygoers allegedly boasted about breaking lockdown rules to the police guarding No 10.

As they left in the early hours, they were reportedly heard saying “we’re the only ones allowed to party”.

In light of the new claim, a spokesperson for Mrs Johnson said: “It is totally untrue to suggest Mrs Johnson held a party in the Downing Street flat on November 13, 2020.”

The Prime Minister is also facing claims that he took top-secret documents home – which is prohibited.

The highly classified materials – known as Strap Documents – were allegedly found strewn around his flat.

Worryingly, separate claims have emerged that Mrs Johnson’s friends had the access code to their private flat where the documents are believed to have been left lying around.

Mr Cummings reportedly stopped putting such documents in Boris Johnson’s red box at the start of 2020, after becoming concerned about the “frat party” atmosphere in No 10.

Ms Gray’s report has been watered down at the request of Met Police, which has launched an investigation into eight of the 17 gatherings looked at by the Senior Civil Servant.

The Met is under fire for its “farcical” handling of the Downing Street scandal. At first refusing to investigate at all, then only announcing a criminal inquiry days before the Sue Gray report was due to be published.

The force has also reportedly told Ms Gray to make “minimal references” to parties at the centre of the dispute, also asking her to delay the publishing date.

Former Supreme Court justice Lord Sumption said The Met had “no legal right to demand that Sue Gray delay publication of her report and it is constitutionally undesirable that they have done so”.

Meanwhile, Labour MP’s urge the PM to resign and put an end to the “circus” that is “partygate”.

Shadow minister Lisa Nandy said: “There are a lot of bereaved families, there are a lot of people who made huge sacrifices who deserve to hear the truth from the Prime Minister.

“If he won’t put an end to this circus then that report has to come out in full so that people can judge for themselves.”

It is understood Mrs Johnson has so far not been interviewed by Ms Gray or the police over the party reports.

The long-awaited report is expected to be submitted to the Prime Minister at any moment.
