David Cameron has made the astonishing revelation that he is related to queen of reality TV Kim Kardashian. The British prime minister confessed to the truth during a televised interview, just weeks before he faces the election results in May.

When asked by heat's Lucie Cave whether he watched Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the politician said: "No, but I'm related to them. Did you know I'm 13th cousins with them?"

According to genealogy website, the link between the Camerons and the Kardashians hails from their mutual ancestor Sir William Spencer who was born in 1555.

However, it sounds like Mr Cameron, 48, isn't rushing to organise a family reunion. "No, I have no plans at the moment," he said, laughing off the idea.

The Eton-educated Prime Minister also revealed that he only thought about entering the world of politics after university. Asked what he wanted to be when he was a young boy, Mr Cameron answered: "All sorts of things: a soldier, a lorry driver, a farmer. I wasn't sure till I left university, then decided I wanted to be a politician."

In the revelatory interview, the leader of the Conservatives also spoke about his phobias and some of the more bizarre things he has to do as part of his job.

David Cameron said he wasn't planning on a Kardashian family reunion any time soon

"I'm not very keen on rats," he said. "We had one in our kitchen once, it came in through the cat flap, it was horrible, and I kind of found it in the middle of the night."

"I'd like to say I stripped down to the waist and wrestled it and threw it out there but I didn't," he added. "It was disappearing through a hole it had found in the skirting board."

Rats aren't the only animal Mr Cameron isn't fond of. The Prime Minister was once asked to hold a baby crocodile and be photographed with it.

"I didn't like that," he said. "There was a camera on so I had to go, 'Oh this is lovely' but I was really worried I was squeezing it so tightly that actually I was going to kill it, because the guy said to me, 'If this bites you, you know, you will draw blood' and I said 'Oh really?' The crocodile survived but I didn't think 'How lovely, I've squeezed a crocodile today,' I thought 'Right, okay, thank God today's over!'"
