The Last Leg sends fake Jeremy Corbyn to Leaders' Debate

The ITV Leaders' Debate took place at dock10 studios on May 18th, 2017. Moderated by ITV News anchor Julie Etchingham, the primetime broadcast offered viewers the opportunity to see party leaders engage directly in debate on election questions put to them by members of the audience.

Both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn didn't take part, however just before the live broadcast someone claiming to be Jeremy Corbyn arrived at the stage door. This turned out to be a Jeremy Corbyn lookalike and a prank by the team at ‘The Last Leg’ on Channel 4.

The ITV Leaders' Debate went live as scheduled with Lib Dem's Tim Farron, UKIP's Paul Nuttall, the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon, the Green Party's Caroline Lucas, and Plaid Cymru's Leanne Wood, but without The Last Leg's lookalike Jeremy Corbyn!
