'Do you sit down to watch the Queen's Speech, Mr Corbyn?'

It's a simple question, but one the Labour leader appeared to struggle with during his interview on ITV. Corbyn responded by saying:

'It's on in the morning, usually we have it on some of the time.'

The only problem? As Julie Etchingham pointed out, the Queen's Christmas Day address is broadcast at 3pm. Corbyn's response?

'Well...'

'You don't watch it, do you Mr Corbyn?' Etchingham asked the Labour leader.

Oh dear. Another broadcast interview success for Corbyn...
