‘Reckon he could’ve ironed his shirt for the occasion?’ Today host Allison Langdon mocks British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his relaxed wedding day look… after he secretly tied the knot with Carrie Symonds
While discussing the surprise nuptials and viewing a slideshow of wedding photos, Allison, 42, couldn’t resist remarking on the state of the groom’s white shirt.
Nitpicking: Today host Allison Langdon (left, with Karl Stefanovic) has shared her thoughts on Boris Johnson’s wedding photos, saying the PM should have ironed his shirt before saying ‘I do’
Today newsreader Alex Cullen began the discussion on Monday’s show, saying: ‘Here’s your first look at Boris Johnson’s wedding from the weekend, with these photos emerging this morning.
‘Isn’t that lovely? The British Prime Minister married 33-year-old Carrie Symonds in a secretly planned wedding at Westminster Cathedral.
‘It’s his third marriage and he’s already returned to work. He’s the first PM to get married while in office in nearly 200 years.’
Host Karl Stefanovic chimed in: ‘He’s quite the catch, isn’t he?’
Langdon then said: ‘Reckon he could’ve ironed his shirt for the occasion?’
‘I do’: Mr Johnson secretly tied the knot with partner Carrie Symonds at London’s Westminster Cathedral on Saturday, making him the first PM to get married while in office in 199 years

‘And wore a tie?’ suggested Cullen, who then added: ‘At least he wore shoes. She [Carrie] didn’t apparently. She was barefoot. Nice summer touch.’
Langdon isn’t the only Australian to raise eyebrows by commenting on the British PM’s nuptials, with singer Peter Andre dropping an accidental innuendo while congratulating the newlyweds on Sunday.
Sharing a photo of Johnson and Symonds gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes after exchanging vows, Andre, 48, wrote on Instagram: ‘Enjoy your wedding BJ.’
By neglecting the comma before BJ, his message suggested something else entirely.
Quickly recognising his mistake, the Mysterious Girl hit-maker added, ‘Probs said that wrong,’ before tagging the Prime Minister in his post.
Mr Johnson, 56, married Ms Symonds, 33, at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday, capping a week of political drama with a wedding kept so under wraps that his office did not confirm it until the following day.
The ceremony was not announced in advance and media reports on Saturday evening said guests were invited at the last minute to the Roman Catholic cathedral in central London, adding that even senior members of the PM’s office were unaware of the wedding plans.
