In his first telephone conversation with Queen Elizabeth II, Donald Trump has asked her if she would give Benny Hill a retrospective knighthood.

The Duke of Edinburgh had been first to answer the phone and gave the President-elect some encouragement by telling him that he was a big fan of Benny Hill. The Queen was non-committal but said she would speak to British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson about it.

“He’s always been one of my favourite English comedians and a bit of a role model for me,” said Trump. “The Benny Hill Show was just great. I look forward to re-enacting some of his roles when I become President.”

A source close to Trump said he couldn’t comment on whether all female interns in the White House would have to be scantily clad.
