The latest polling data has put the Conservatives and Labour neck and neck in the race for 10 Downing Street.
ICM Research puts Labour one point ahead of the Tories with 40 per cent of the vote.
Corbyn’s party has increased their share by two points while Theresa May’s Conservatives have dropped a point.
Elsewhere the Lib Dems, UKIP and the Green Party all remain static with a nine per cent, five per cent and three per cent share of the vote respectively.
The results have been released just days after Diane Abbott was lambasted on BBC Question Time for suggesting Labour and the Tories are close in the polls.
Fiona Bruce and political pundit Isabel Oakeshott said Labour was behind in the polls – but in the last 10 at the time it has trailed the Tories in four, led in four and tied in two.
