Was PM of Britain a pornstar?

What's the difference between the UK's Prime Minister-designate and a glamour model who appeared in the Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up video?

Popular microblogging website Twitter was awash with tweets about Theresa May, following the news that the Home Secretary will replace Prime Minister David Cameron after May's rival for the leadership of the Conservative Party, Andrea Leadsom, quit the leadership race earlier today.

May – with an H – will ascend to the premiership unopposed, earlier leadership race candidates having been knocked out in earlier rounds of voting among Conservative MPs.

Her victory, however, was overshadowed by Twitter's algorithms deciding to highlight a glamour model with a very similar name.

Step forward 49-year-old Teresa May, star of the Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up music video (NSFW) – and, according to various shady websites, reasonably similar films, including Celebrity Shags 13, Dirty English Bitches Volume 3 and Teresa May's Punishment Party. Perhaps the latter title is what has confused a number of hopeful Tory members – not to mention Channel 4 News' Alex Thomson and a Fox News affiliate in America.

Potential prime ministerial material? A rival for the leadership of the United Kingdom? What does Theresa have to say?

Quite. Apparently there's a gaping chasm between Twitter, automated algorithms and reality, too.
