WHO IS STEPHANIE?

Boris' family life has caused him some controversy over the years.

His four children have a younger half-sister, Stephanie, who was born in 2009 - the product of an affair with art advisory Helen Macintyre.

Stephanie is the second youngest of Johnson's children.

At first, he denied paternity and wasn't named on the birth certificate.

However, his relations were revealed after a 2013 court battle in which he sought an injunction to prevent her existence being reported.

It is not believed her elder half-siblings or her father have anything to do with her.
