Labour "hung on" and "grew support" in council elections across England in the face of poor predictions, leader Jeremy Corbyn said during a visit to Sheffield.
He admitted there was "a lot of building to do" in Scotland following dire results in the Holyrood elections.
Mr Corbyn insisted he would continue as Labour leader: "I'm carrying on. Don't worry about that. I'm carrying on. I'm fine. I'm very happy."
Labour leader hits out at a harmful "running commentary" in the media as he admits the party is not in a position to win the next election.
MPs say the results show that Jeremy Corbyn's brand of socialism isn't working - but he has done well enough to stave off a coup.
A Labour MP opposed to Jeremy Corbyn just texted me: he has until next year to prove he can win the General Election in 2020.
