Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn could not name famous ITV presenting duo Ant and Dec during a live programme today.

The Geordie presenters, who started their careers on Byker Grove, are both Labour supporters. They have been on television for almost 30 years, fronting successful ITV shows 'I'm A Celebrity' and 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.

BBC's Victoria Derbyshire showed a photograph of Ant and Dec to Jeremy Corbyn during a live debate with Owen Smith.
