Tories create ‘Gogglebox-style’ video reaction to first general election TV debate

Two Tory ministers starred in a Gogglebox-style video reacting to the first leaders’ debate between Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer.

Mel Stride and Gillian Keegan were filmed watching Tuesday night’s (4 June) clash between the prime minister and the Labour leader with what appeared to be alcoholic drinks beside them, similar to the Channel 4 show.

The pair offered their reactions to the debate, commenting on the PM’s “crisp” shirt and telling Sir Keir to stop talking about Liz Truss.

A YouGov instant reaction poll gave Mr Sunak a narrow win of 51 per cent to 49 per cent in the debate.
