Keir Starmer is the favourite to take over from Jeremy Corbyn, but is he too boring for the top job in the Labour party? Starmer's critics insist he is and that he lacks the personality to take on Boris Johnson. Unfortunately his attempt to counter that argument rather backfired this morning. Asked by Nick Ferrari on LBC what was the most exciting thing he has ever done, Starmer responded by saying:

Starmer: 'I've done lots of exciting things, you know?'

Ferrari: 'No, tell me'

Starmer: 'Well, you know, with playing football with...going to football with my kids'

Ferrari: 'Going to football with your children is the most exciting thing Sir Kier Starmer has ever done?'

Starmer: 'You're characterising me'
