ALLEGRA Stratton has unwittingly found herself at the centre of a media storm instead of being the one discussing current affairs.

The former BBC and ITV journalist was recorded laughing and joking about holding a Christmas party in No10 last year as the country was plunged back into lockdown. But who is her high-profile hubby?

Who is Allegra Stratton's husband James Forsyth?

James Forsyth is a British political journalist and Political Editor of The Spectator magazine.

He was born in London in 1981 and went on to study at Winchester College as well as Jesus College at the University of Cambridge.

After kickstarting his journalism career, he joined the Foreign Policy magazine as assistant editor.

He launched The Spectator's political blog in 2007 and was appointed deputy editor of the weekly magazine the following year.

Forsyth was then made Political Editor of The Spectator in 2009.

He is also an advisory board member of the ResPublica think tank in Westminster and a weekly columnist for The Times, The Sun and formerly the Mail on Sunday.
