Miliband: White trousers 'among many fashion faux pas'

The Labour leader Ed Miliband has revealed he "had many fashion faux pas in the 80s", admitting "I think it may have been white trousers and not a nice v-neck."

Earlier in the year, Mr Miliband told Now magazine he wasn't "massively interested in clothes" and that his wardrobe contained "big jumpers and nasty corduroys."

Speaking to Absolute Radio at last night's Pride of Britain Awards, Mr Miliband confessed he did not know who the pop group The Saturdays were as they were being interviewed next to him.

He said he had not watched this year's X Factor, but did reveal he was sitting on a table with judge Nicole Scherzinger so he could catch up on the series.

Well Ed, you can watch previous episodes on the ITV Player.
