    View more on twitter

    Some may have been surprised when Ed Balls danced his way on to the TV screens as a Strictly contestant.

    But last night, he took on a bit of acting (and dancing) on This Week, paying homage to a Twin Peaks character from the cult TV programme which returns to TV screens this weekend after 25 years.

    And the former shadow chancellor showed off another skill as he played bingo master, days after his former leader Ed Milband was snapped doing something similar out on the campaign trail.

    "This election is a choice - there's a very clear choice here.

    "The Labour way of working for the good of the entire community, or the other side's way which is perpetuating the grotesque levels of inequality that already exists in our society.

    The crowd's delighted.

    Mr Corbyn replies:

    Quote Message: Strong and stable is an odd choice of words... what strength is about is about your sense of belief, about your sense of community, about your sense of responsibility when you have responsibilities to carry out.
  10. Watch: What does Theresa May's vision look like?

    This Week

    Theresa May does not want to be another Iron Lady, but appears to be modelling herself on the "disastrous Nanny State meddler Ted Heath" says James Delingpole.

    In a personal film for This Week, the executive editor of Breitbart in London looked at the 2017 general election and claimed that her politics "must make red Jeremy Corbyn wonder why he bothers".

    After his film was aired, he debated with Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Ed Balls - watch the whole programme on iPlayer.

  12. Corbyn: 'We will fund social care'

    Now it's social care.

    More than a million people don't get the care they need, the Labour leader says.

    "This Conservative government has made a huge cut in social care budget already," he tells the audience, saying the Conservatives are putting a £100,000 cap on social care "which goes nowhere to meeting needs".

    It's completed unrealistic, he says, vowing Labour will make sure social care is "properly funded".

    Quote Message: We believe very, very strongly in that.
  13. Corbyn targets Tory winter fuel benefit plan

    Jeremy Corbyn

    Jeremy Corbyn, all guns blazing, directs his fire at the Conservative plan to means-test the winter fuel allowance.

    "Labour believes in the whole point of universal benefits", he says, saying the party would protect the benefit for pensioners.

    And says they will maintain the triple lock on pensions: "We will not destroy, we will not undermine it.. that is the Labour commitment in this election."

  14. Corbyn makes health pledges

  16. Corbyn quizzed on 'red Tory' May

    Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn is back on the campaign trail today and is expected to make a speech shortly.

    He's been quizzed by the Press Association about whether he thinks Theresa May is a 'red Tory' - apparently he does not.

    This is what he had to say:

    Quote Message: It's a very strange description for a prime minister who leads a government where six million people earn less than the living wage, where thousands are sleeping on the streets every night, where social care is not available, where our hospitals are under threat. I think what this country needs is a government that cares for all the people."
