Amidst a flurry of resignations, the Conservative party cabinet has experienced a shakeup.

Jeremy Wright has been named as the new Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Meanwhile, previous Culture Secretary Matt Hancock has been appointed as the new Health Secretary and Jeremy Hunt is the new Foreign Secretary (following Boris Johnson’s resignation).

The announcements were made on Twitter, where the new cabinet members were tagged by their Twitter handles. The only person who wasn’t tagged was Wright, suggesting he is not an active Twitter user.

He does, however, run a Facebook page, where he announced his new role, stating: "Very excited to be starting a new job this morning as Secretary of State at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, a department whose work has a huge impact on our heritage, the things we enjoy now and on our national future."
