LOVED-up BoJo said it was “a tiny bit premature” to talk of getting married to new squeeze Carrie Symonds.
Asked if the 31-year-old public relations expert will move into Number 10 with him, he replied: “I think that comes under the heading of measuring up the curtains and presumptuous.
“I’m just concentrating on driving for the line.”
Mr Johnson was equally coy when it was suggested he could become the first PM in modern times to get married while living in Downing Street.
He said: “Well, you know, I just think all that looks just a tiny bit premature. I’m still fighting to get the votes in.
“People are casting their votes between now and July 22. We’ve got a long time to go. So I think it would be premature to discuss the arrangements.”
The hot favourite for the Tory leadership admitted he will make a “different sort” of PM — avoiding a repeat of Theresa May’s cautious approach for a more swashbuckling style.
In an interview with The Sun on Sunday, Mr Johnson said: “For the last three years, quite frankly, we’ve had nothing but a diet of miserabilism.

“We can’t do this, we can’t do that. You know, ‘Computer says no’. And it’s really wretched.
Mr Johnson believes his mission will be to help the Conservative party and the nation to recover their self-belief.
He wants people to feel they have a stake in Britain and believes this can be done by backing business, supporting wealth creation and increasing home ownership.
The former Foreign Secretary declared: “It’s so simple. Yet for three years, we haven’t really talked that up.
“It’s high time that Conservatives got a spring back in their step and there was a lot more optimism and conviction about what we’re doing.”
He defended his colourful language which has landed him in the soup in the past, saying: “It’s very important in politics to say what you think and to try to get your message across as powerfully as you can. What I want to do is very clear. I need to get Brexit over the line, I need to unite the country and I think we’ve got a very exciting plan to do that.”
