Even television presenter Rob Rinder found himself distracted by Mr Javid’s beard and interrupted an interview to compare the MP to ‘Brutus’ during ITV’s Good Morning Britain. 

As Mr Javid was speaking, he jumped in: ‘I am sorry to interrupt you, again it’s a lack of time and not rudeness on my part, but I can see you are sporting a new beard.

‘You are looking very much like Brutus which of course has Shakesperian echoes.’

Responding to the comment, the bemused MP quipped back: ‘I am not sure about your reference to Brutus there.’

Mr Javid, who has endorsed Liz Truss in the Conservative leadership contest, was appearing on TV to discuss how tax cuts will help families amid soaring living costs.

He said Ms Truss ‘will act very quickly’ on the economy through an emergency budget if made prime minister.

Defending her tax cuts policy, Mr Javid told Sky News: ‘Tax cuts, I think they are especially important for long-term growth, we’re can’t tax our way into growth and she’s set that out…’

He was also quizzed about Ms Truss’ claim that British workers need to produce ‘more graft’.

Mr Javid continued: ‘That comment, as I understand it, was made a number of years ago; I don’t know the exact context that was made in.

‘What I also heard her say, just in that snippet that you played there, was that the productivity in the UK versus other comparable countries is generally lower and that’s been a longstanding UK problem and that doesn’t happen because British workers don’t work hard; British workers are amongst the hardest-working in the world.’
