Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, John McDonnell, 68, has also ruled his name of the leader race if Corbyn were to stand down.

Believing the current leader would have to relinquish himself of the role, the Labour MP told GQ Magazine he “can’t see” why Corbyn would stay in the top position.

“I can’t see… I think it is the same for my own personal position, I can’t see so,” McDonnell explained.

“What we’d do is as the tradition, which is have an election for a new leader. I’m still of the view now that whoever comes after Jeremy has got to be a woman,” he commented.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
