And it seems others couldn’t help but compare Corbyn’s interview with Theresa May’s The One Show appearance alongside her husband Philip earlier this month. ICYMI, when discussing jobs around the house like taking out the bins, May said: “There’s boy jobs and girl jobs.”

Asked during his time The One Show sofa if he and his wife Laura Alvarez divided housework along gender lines, Corbyn simply shook his head.
Earlier in the show, which focused on his personality rather than his politics, the Labour leader also promised he was “giving it everything” to win the General Election.
And he brought a selection of photos showing his childhood and youth to the programme – one photo showed him in reins as a toddler and he joked: “I was a bit free-spirited and I kept climbing out of the pram and running off.”
