Rebecca Long-Bailey reveals she plays rock and heavy metal on electric guitar

Labour leadership candidate Rebecca Long-Bailey has revealed to LBC that she plays heavy metal on electric guitar.

The radio station's Westminster reporter Ben Kentish asked the politician what was the most exciting thing she'd ever done.

"Well I haven't run through a field of wheat like Theresa May," she said, referring to the same question asked of the former Tory Prime Minister.

"I play the electric guitar, not many people know that," Ms Long-Bailey said, and when asked which genres she played, she listed indie, metal and rock.

Unfortunately for all you metal heads she then refused to get her instrument out at the next round of Labour hustings.

"I don't think it'd be fair to subject people to that."
