Priti Patel’s allies have hit out at a BBC comedian’s racially-charged jibe on Twitter about her not liking curry that incited a string of disgusting responses branding her a ‘coconut’ – as 31 Labour MPs claim she has not authority on racism.

Guz Khan, who appears on BBC3 show Man Like Mobeen, posted a photo of Ms Patel pulling a face with the message: ‘Shall we have a curry for dinner tonight Priti?’

Followers piled in with vile offensive tweets calling her the ‘biggest coconut going’ and that said ‘she’s more of a coconut curry type of girl to be honest….’
