North Somerset MP Liam Fox is urging fellow Conservatives to back his experience when it comes to voting for the next leader and Prime Minister.

Fox - who's thought to have the smallest number of backers - told our political correspondent Bob Constantine the contest was "not like Britain's Got Talent".

One of the five candidates will be eliminated as a result of today's vote.

These are the four other contenders for David Cameron's job.
