Boris Johnson has struck a deal with publisher HarperCollins to write a memoir that publishing sources say will earn him more than £6m.
No date has yet been set for the release of the book, with the announcement coming only several months after Mr Johnson was forced from office and amid ongoing speculation that he might harbour ambitions to return to frontline politics.
His wife Carrie Johnson is also believed to be writing a book.
