Former Conservative minister Michael Gove has been photographed partying at an Ibiza dance venue and refilling his drink.
The photos show the former Leveling Up secretary in a crumpled white shirt pouring himself a Gray Goose vodka next to a bucket of drinks.
The former minister, 55, was partying at the island’s Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, surrounded by other revelers.
You can see him leaning over a table with two buckets of drinks while he refills his own glass.
Gove appears to have bounced back since he was fired last month by outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson after advising the beleaguered prime minister to resign.
Now in the backseats, he is vacationing on the Mediterranean island with his children Beatrice and William, The Mirror reports.
Gove has served in successive cabinet posts since 2010, and twice sought Tory leadership, finishing third on the ballot in 2016 and 2019.

Now supporting Rishi Sunak in the race to become the next Tory leader, Gove indicated this month that his career on the front bench in politics is over.
He wrote in The Times this month: ‘I don’t expect to be in government again. But it was the privilege of my life to spend 11 years in the cabinet under three prime ministers. I know what the work requires. And Rishi has it.
“Proposed cuts in national insurance benefits the rich, and changes in corporate taxes affect large companies, not small businesses.
“I don’t see how protecting the stock options of FTSE 100 executives should ever take precedence over supporting the poorest in our society, but in a time of need it can’t be the right priority.”
Gove’s partying in Ibiza is the last snapshot of him letting go of his hair. In August last year, he was filmed ‘raving’ in an Aberdeen nightclub in front of stunned revelers while dressed in a suit.

In the clip, Gove was shown waving his arms on the dance floor and interacting with other revelers.
Last summer, Gove announced he’s parting ways with his wife, Mail columnist Sarah Vine, after 20 years.
The photos from Gove’s Spanish holiday come after the Prime Minister was photographed with his wife and two youngest children on holiday in Greece.
