Comedian Al Murray joined Jon Holmes to discuss running in the general election, parachuting and his new tour.

He's currently on tour in the UK with his show Let’s Go Backwards Together, which runs until June 10.

The pair chatted about Murray standing against UKIP leader Nigel Farage in South Thanet in the 2015 general election, an event which drew huge publicity.

Murray, who stood for office in his pub landlord character, said: "I set in motion the mockery and undermining of democracy."

He was also going to parachute into the constituency, however it didn't quite go to plan. Murray explained why.
