David Cameron and his family will move into 10 Downing Street today, more than two weeks after he became Prime Minister, he has revealed.

He said he enjoyed a "last breakfast" this morning at the west London home he shares with wife Samantha, who is pregnant, and their children Nancy, six, and four-year-old Elwen.

"We are moving in today. So we had the last breakfast at home this morning but I have got quite a lot of other meetings and things I've got to do at the same time," he told BBC Radio 4's Today.

Downing Street said earlier this week that the Camerons will move into the flat in Number 10 while work is carried out on the accommodation next door at Number 11 where the family will eventually live.

There has been speculation that the work on No 11 includes an upgraded kitchen for the Cameron family, but the Prime Minister's spokesman declined to comment in detail on the work.

"There is a maintenance budget and any excess will be paid by the Prime Minister," he said.

Asked if he would be selling his Notting Hill home, the PM joked: "I certainly won't be renting it to Miss Whiplash if that's what you mean."

That was the professional name used by a sex therapist revealed to have been renting a flat belonging to ex-chancellor Norman Lamont - for whom Mr Cameron worked as an adviser.
