Jeremy Corbyn has announced six further appointments to Labour's shadow cabinet.
Defence: Kate Hollern MP
Education: Jenny Chapman MP
Justice: Jo Stevens MP
Transport: Andy McDonald MP
Work and Pensions: Angela Rayner MP
Foreign: Fabian Hamilton MP
Three of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's shadow ministers walked out on him on Wednesday, launching a bruising attack as they went.
They were angered by sackings they claim were "vindictive" and "stupid".
ITV News Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship reports:
Two former Labour frontbenchers who resigned after Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet reshuffle have told ITV News that it was a mistake for the party leader to sack former Europe shadow minister Pat McFadden.
Shadow Rail Minister Jonathan Reynolds said that the "majority of British people" would agree with McFadden's comments in relation to the Paris atrocities, which was seen as a thinly-veiled criticism of the party leader's line.
Shadow foreign affairs minister Stephen Doughty, who resigned shortly after Reynolds, said he would have said "exactly the same things" that McFadden said about terrorism.
Shadow Armed Forces Minister, Kevan Jones, is the latest to resign following Jeremy Corbyn's frontbench reshuffle.
Announcing his resignation on Twitter with a copy of his letter to the party leader, the Durham MP cited the issue of Trident as the reason for moving to the backbench.
Labour MP Stephen Doughty is the latest frontbencher to resign, quitting his post live on TV.
The shadow foreign affairs minister made the announcement to viewers of BBC Daily Politics show on Wednesday.
He said that he believed resigning was the "honourable" thing for him to do because he disagreed with the sacking of Pat McFadden.
Maria Eagle, who replaced Michael Dugher as Shadow Culture Secretary in Jeremy Corbyn's latest reshuffle, has said she is "pleased" with the appointment.
In a statement on Twitter, she said that culture, arts and sport are an "important part of our national life" and pledged to "take (the Tories) to task" on issues including the BBC and Leveson.
Jonathan Reynolds, Shadow Rail Minister, has resigned from Labour's front bench following the party's reshuffle yesterday.
He announced on Twitter his decision and posted his resignation letter on Facebook, adding: "On reflection regarding yesterday's Labour reshuffle, I have decided that it's best if I serve the Party as a backbencher. I've written to Jeremy this morning to let him know."
In his letter, he referred to former Shadow Europe Minister Pat McFadden who was rumoured to have been sacked over "disloyalty" to Jeremy Corbyn.
Reynolds said that he believed McFadden was right in his comments following the Paris attacks, which were said to have "infuriated" Corbyn.
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell described Jeremy Corbyn as the "Arsene Wenger of politics" as he dismissed speculation following the party's cabinet reshuffle as "a lot of hype".
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he rejected the suggestion the Labour leader had "dithered" over the shape of his new shadow cabinet.
He told presenters Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan that Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn was "never going to go" adding that Labour's free vote over air strikes in Syria meant he was at liberty to disagree with the party leader.
But he later told the BBC that in the future, Benn must speak from a few rows back if he wants to disagree with Corbyn on a free vote.
McDonnell said that Maria Eagle had taken her "dream job" switching the defence and culture briefs.
