UK Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed that he is related to reality TV stars The Kardashians. 

In a Q&A with readers of UK's Heat magazine, Mr Cameron was asked if he watched the reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"No, but I'm related to them,“ replied Cameron. "Did you know I'm 13th cousins with them?" 

The link is via a mutual ancestor, Sir William Spencer, born in 1555, according to genealogy website geni.com.

He also told Heat that there were no plans for a family reunion (although it is early days in the British General Election campaign).

A selection of the magazine's readers had sent in questions and Cameron's answers disclosed that he prefers brown sauce to red, that he is a fan of Marmite and, due to obvious security restrictions, he misses not being able to jump in a car to go to the shops.
