Artist Tracey Emin has exhibited her unmade bed at the Tate and and told Radio 4 listeners she wanted her epitaph to read "f**k me while I'm sleeping".

And now the controversial artist's work is on display at Downing Street.

David Cameron's office announced on Sunday that one of her neon signs, reading 'More Passion', is now hanging above Number 10's Terracotta Room.

Foreign dignitaries, cabinet ministers and government workers will now be greeted with the provocative message.

Emin has previously voiced her support for the Conservatives, and has had dinner with the prime minister.

She told the BBC in May: "Remember, Tory people are massive collectors of the arts. For a lot of my friends, who think I'm crazy voting for the Tories - I want to know who buys their work? Who are the biggest philanthropists? I promise you, it's not Labour voters."
