Chatting with practice sister Julie Lees at the Range Medical Centre, Mr Cameron said he should "set a good example" to the public by having a flu jab but would not "because I've got my speech tomorrow".

"Don't take my blood pressure today either. I think that would probably be off the chart with the worry," he joked.
