Actor Andy Serkis has revived his Gollum character from the Lord Of the Rings films in an unflattering parody of Prime Minister Theresa May and her Brexit deal.

The British actor, known for his motion-capture work playing CGI characters, donned a Conservative-blue jacket, a grey wig and lipstick for the sketch. 

‘Precious… our agreement, this is it. Our deal,’ hisses Serkis as he cowers in a darkened Number 10, pouring over a copy of the Withdrawal Agreement MPs will vote on Tuesday.

‘We takes back control! Money, borders, laws … blue passportses!’ 

Gollum’s bulging eyes, creepy demeanour and rasping voice is heard as Mrs May fights an internal battle between wanting to push on with the Brexit deal or facing up to her critics.

‘It hurts the people, makes them poorer,’ pleads one side.

‘But I finds it and negotiates it. We wants it! We has to do it!’ spits the other. 

Switching to Sméagol, the film’s kinder counter-part, the PM pleads: ‘But the peoples are our friends’.

Snapping back to Gollum, Mrs May hisses up close to camera: ‘You don’t have any friends!’

Mrs May then reaches for her thick copy of the withdrawal agreement which she strokes and holds up while eerily muttering: ‘my Brexit’. 

Serkis won a host of awards for his portrayal of Gollum in the Lord Of The Rings, a cowering, deformed creature with a split personality who obsesses over his ‘precious’ ring. 

The video, which was produced by a company which has previously made films for the Labour Party, ends by calling for a People’s Vote on Brexit.

The video has been viewed more than one million times since it was posted to Facebook and YouTube on Sunday afternoon with the title titled ‘LEAKED: Footage From Inside No 10 Downing Street!’ 

It has since been and shared by the likes of Gary Lineker and Stephen Fry.

Parliament is scheduled to vote on Mrs May’s Brexit deal on Tuesday.
