After just six months of Matt Hancock, 'events' give us a new Culture Secretary. Step forward Jeremy Wright, 45, MP for Kenilworth and Southam.

Jeremy was born in Taunton, parents both teachers, and was educated at Taunton School and, for a spell, at Trinity School, New York - one of the most expensive and selective private schools in the States (alumni include Larry Hagman, John McEnroe and Eric Trump).  He was on an intern scheme with the US Congress when he met his American-wife-to-be, Yvonne Salter. He studied law at Exeter, where he chaired the Conservative Association, and was called to the Bar in 1996, and then practised around the West Midlands.

He now lives in his constituency, in the village of Shrewley. His interests include "travel, especially to the USA, music, James Bond films and playing golf badly." Mrs Salter-Wright is a school governor and champion of Catholic academy schools; she has an active Twitter account - unlike her husband.

Still, he managed a post on Facebook this morning: "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."
