Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw WILL stand as deputy leader of the Labour Party after a last-minute scramble to secure support from 35 of his colleagues.
In the end he got the backing of 37 of them - following a late surge in support just before the midday deadline.
Our presenter Ian Axton interviewed him earlier today - about the scramble for support AND his attitude to the candidates for the Labour leadership.
Ian did ask one question that proved slightly awkward - what did Mr Bradshaw think of the hopes of left-winger Jeremy Corbyn in the leadership stakes.
Here, in a nutshell, is the Exeter MP's answer:
Mr Bradshaw is one of five candidates for the deputy leadership. The winner will be announced in September.
