Britain’s next Prime Minister is set to be female after Michael Gove was eliminated from the race to Number 10.

Andrea Leadsom now joins Theresa May in the final two, meaning the next leader will become only the second ever female Prime Minister, the only other being Margaret Thatcher.

Current PM David Cameron announced he would step down in the wake of the EU referendum.

Now grass-roots Conservatives will decide who will take over the leadership, and ultimately, the top job.

Mrs May is the runaway front-runner to replace David Cameron after taking 199 Tory MP nominations in the second round of voting.

Mrs Leadsom won 84 and Mr Gove was eliminated with 46 votes.
