BORIS Johnson is unable to get any WhatsApps from his old phone — because he has forgotten the password.

The ex-PM is working with technical experts to try to recover the material so he can hand it over to the Covid inquiry.

He stopped using the mobile in May 2021 after his phone number was compromised and shared online.

But there are fears if he enters the wrong code it may permanently lock the Apple iPhone and erase the messages forever.

Reports claim that BoJo doesn’t have “100 per cent confidence he remembers it”.

The device is now in the possession of Mr Johnson’s lawyers, a spokesman for him confirmed yesterday.

They said that he is co-operating fully with the probe.

The phone, used at the start of the pandemic, is likely to contain key messages about the run-up to the first national lockdown, announced in 2020.

The device was due to be handed over on ­Monday afternoon after a judicial review ruled the inquiry should be allowed to see all of Mr Johnson’s unredacted messages, notebooks and diaries

Susie Flintham, from Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice UK, called the delay a “complete joke”.
