UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced her new top team in a cabinet reshuffle, leaving Jeremy Hunt and Chris Grayling as Health Secretary and Transport Secretary, despite widespread criticism.
The prime minister is expected to create a new position of deputy prime minister to solidify her position as the leader of the party.
She already confirmed that the five biggest jobs in the government will stay the same.
This means Philip Hammond will remain as Chancellor, Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary, Amber Rudd as Home Secretary, David Davis as Brexit Secretary and Michael Fallon as Defence Secretary.
