    We are into the home straight on the election campaign but plenty can happen between now and poling day.
    Kate McCann has spent the day with the Prime Minister in north east England where - after an early start in a fish market - he's been targeting Labour 'leave' seats.

    Kate's joined by Diana Magnay and producer Tom Larkin who have been with Jeremy Corbyn on the Labour campaign - and they have a rather intriguing story about a somewhat 'amorous' reception for Mr Corbyn.

MC BVI ,

Great stuff Kate

Brilliant. Will miss you.

My God Kate - did you predict 68%.

The only commentator anywhere close.

Congrats.

MC BVI

You asked what we needed the day before the election. Here goes. Each of you on the Podcast, please make your predictions tomorrow of Tory or Hung. I think those are the only options at this stage. Sophy Ridge did it on Sunday and all three of them went for Tory. Hopefully you guys and girls can be more creative. Good luck. Can’t wait for Thursday night. BTW - Great Podcast - have not missed a single one - Kate you are entertainment personified. MC BVI

Love it! Don’t stop it!!!

Pls keep going after the election even if it’s only weekly or couple of times a week. Kate’s done really well in pitching it just right. Love the behind the scenes info

sparkybee ,

I’ve loved this podcast! Please do more.

This political podcast is such a great listen: funny, insightful, informal, gossipy and informative. It’s been lovely to hear what the campaign trail is like behind the scenes, and it’s been great to get to know the Sky politics team a little better. Please make more podcasts beyond this grim campaign. God knows, we need some light relief...
