DAYTIME television host Jeremy Vine shocked viewers with with a bizarre appeal for the Queen to intervene over Brexit.

Calling the Queen "her majesty" the Channel 5 host delivered an impassioned monologue to camera where he called on her to "screw protocol" and have her say on the constitutional crisis.

Members of the Royal Family traditionally avoid direct involvement into politics to protect their neutrality but Boris Johnson's decision to seek the monarch's permission to prorogue Parliament has brought customs under intense scrutiny.

The presenter said: "Your majesty, in decades, centuries to come, we will be known as the Elizabethans. Because of you. "You are QE II. We are the second Elizabethans. Your majesty, your reign is ending in disquiet.

"Your subjects are split down the middle. Your country hung, drawn and quartered.

“They say protocol means you can’t speak. Screw protocol! They say protocol means you must stay out of it, well get your courtiers in a room and tell them to shove their protocol up their royal garters.

“You would shout fire if you saw one in a theatre... shout now ma’am.”

And he went on: “We need you to say something. The country is 52/48 on Brexit , but where are you? Everyone’s arguing and you don’t speak.

“Your majesty please tell us what to do, please don’t wait another day.”

There was applause for the appeal from those around him, but callers did not all agree with him.

And Twitter users were displeased.

"Never seen anything like it in my life" said Scots comedian Limmy.

"Just another symptom of a nation progressively losing its mind" said Graham Lithgow.

The Queen was criticised in 2014 when she warned Scottish voters to "think carefully" when casting their vote on the independence of Scotland from the UK.

Former Prime Minister David Cameron revealed in his memoir he asked the monarch's advice after polls showed a surge in support for independence.

He said he did not ask the Queen for "anything improper" after revealing that he suggested to her private secretary how the monarch could possibly influence the outcome of the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, before she went on to make an intervention that was widely seen as having helped the faltering pro-union campaign.

During the referendum campaign, a news camera microphone captured audio of David Cameron saying the Queen "purred" over Scotland's no vote.
