It looks like Jeremy Corbyn could be setting himself up with a new career in TV. Not only has he appeared on Gogglebox, the Labour leader is now slated to appear on John Bishop's show.

It's likely to be a bit more serious than Gogglebox. Bishop said: "It's very exciting to have the opportunity to interview someone who has had such a profound impact on the political landscape of this country, without actually being in power."

When appearing on Gogglebox for Stand Up To Cancer, Corbyn got a question on University Challenge wrong.

He also claimed Nigella Lawson was not cooking eggs correctly, according to The Telegraph, but overall it seemed he didn't fair too badly from appearing on the show.

John Bishop: In Conversation With Jeremy Corbyn will be broadcast on November 23 on W at 9pm.

Others in the comedian's series include Joan Collins, John Cleese and former Spice Girl star Melanie C.
