The Vegetarian Jeremy Corbyn presented an award at British Kebab Awards last night as he called on the nation to add salad to them.

The Labour leader attended the British Kebab Awards as an “aficionado of kebab shops”, in spite of the fact he has not eaten meat for 50 years.

Mr Corbyn made the decision to become a vegetarian when he was working in a pig farm, where he “got attached to the pigs".

Speaking at the event last night he said: “Vegetarian aficionado of kebab shops, I hope I’m still welcome.

"I’m always very pleased whenever I get to any kebab shop to enjoy a good falafel.

“When people buy kebabs, I want them to have salad on top, so they can have the balanced diet we all need.”

He added that kebab shops are "a place of great discourse and discussion."

A spokesperson for Jeremy Corbyn said the speech was "mostly ad-libbed."

London mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan also spoke at the event, but was interuppted by a man who ran on stage.

Mr Khan joked: "Can someone get [Tory mayoral rival] Zac Goldsmith's campaign manager off the stage please?"Mr Corbyn attended the event after he was accused of turning his party into a "laughing stock" after an internal list emerged branding MPs "hostile", neutral or supportive of the leader.

Members of the shadow cabinet warned Mr Corbyn has divided the party after both the Labour chief whip and its London mayoral candidate were classed as "hostile".

The publication of the list, which details almost every member of the parliamentary Labour party divided into five categories, has led to calls for an urgent investigation after MPs accused the leadership of "bullying" and "black-listing" members.
