Ed Miliband may have become an overnight internet sensation with teenage girls but he hasn't let that go to his head.

Twitter is full of messages hailing the Labour leader, who became a selfie sensation, sharing pictures of him photoshopped on to more traditional heartthrobs.

But he said that his popularity with teenage girls has caused "some bemusement" and says that pop sensations One Direction need not be concerned.

I think One Direction have got nothing to worry about where I'm concerned.

I think it has caused some bemusement I should say in the Miliband family when I told my wife last night she raised her eyebrows and thought there must be some mistake.
