The Net Zero-obsessed millionaire scientist (Sir Patrick Vallance), a bullied Byker Grove actress, the pro-Palestine human rights lawyer and the cobbler who employs ex-offenders who is now Prison’s Minister: Meet Keir’s Cabinet as new Prime Minister gets to work on first day

It’s been less than 24 hours since Keir Starmer was handed the keys to 10 Downing Street and he has already ushered in his new cabinet.

Sir Keir, who is now Britain’s 58th prime minister, took no time in appointing many of the key players who are set to shape his government – and the country – over the next five years.

While many of those who secured the cabinet roles were unsurprising for most, some of their backgrounds paint a more interesting picture.

From an Oxford graduate who starred in Byker Grove to the renowned ‘Dr Doom’ who became a household name during Covid and even the chief executive of Timpsons, there are plenty of noteworthy characters taking up the top jobs.

Here MailOnline looks at some of the newly appointed members on Sir Keir’s team and how they came to be part of this Labour government.

Sir Patrick Vallance became a household name during the Covid-19 pandemic, frequently appearing on TV screens across the nation for the government’s daily briefings.

The former chief scientific adviser is often remembered for delivering some bleak projections about the state of the country, earning him the nickname ‘Dr Doom’.

But, after quitting his role in 2022, the 64-year-old is now set to make surprising return to Whitehall – as a Minister of State of Science.

Vallance has been a big advocate for Labour’s green policies, having voiced support for the party’s ambition to decarbonise Britain’s electricity supplies by 2030.

He was heavily involved in the COP26 climate negotiations. and also leads the Net Zero Innovation Board, which provides strategic oversight of Government funding of net zero innovation programmes.
