Today, we look at Keir Starmer revealing the “first steps” Labour would take if they won the general election.

Speaking at an event in Essex, the Labour leader unveiled a pledge card with six key policies, including delivering "economic stability" and providing 40,000 more hospital appointments each week.

Starmer rejected claims the party had scaled back its ambitions, and that it was a “copycat” of Tony Blair who launched his pledge card and went on to win the general election for Labour in 1997.

Adam, Chris and Alex are joined by Steve Reed, the Shadow Environment Secretary.

And find out how Rishi Sunak got on when he braved the panel on ITV’s Loose Women.
