He flew into Athens airport on Wednesday after taking a flight to Bulgaria to get to his holiday villa.

Ex-MEP Johnson, 79, posted pictures on social media of his journey but claimed he didn’t do it out of “defiance”.

Speaking yesterday, he said: “I came here to have a quiet time, to organise the house.

“I think I’m going to go back on July 10.

“So, I have just got one week to get everything organised.

“Got a whole lot of instructions about how to make the place Covid proof.”

He wouldn’t divulge any conversations he may have had with his son Boris about the trip.

He said: “I am absolutely not going to talk about that.”

During an interview on Friday, the PM sidestepped criticism of his dad saying Foreign Office guidance on travel was merely “advice”.
