Jeremy Corbyn Was On "The One Show" And It Got Increasingly Random

Trust me, this is peak One Show.

Posted on

When Theresa May was on The One Show she caused controversy by saying that in a household there were "girls' jobs" and "boys' jobs".

And as you know, it was fascinating.

And as you know, it was fascinating.

So when Jeremy Corbyn appeared they went ALL IN.

Glad they've cleared that up.

Glad they've cleared that up.

Of course we all know about the hedge outside Corbyn's house, which looks a bit extreme at times.

If you don't, don't worry.

So I'm very happy to report that The One Show asked him about this so we can have closure.

It was some very damn detailed closure.

This went on for quite some time.

This went on for quite some time.

We then saw some photos of a young Jeremy Corbyn, resulting in Ore Oduba saying "cheeky".

The photos featuring Corbyn ended up being explained in great detail.

There was also a lot of discussion about volunteering in Jamaica.

There was also a lot of discussion about volunteering in Jamaica.

Then there was also a question about where the photos came from and Corbyn winked suggestively.

There was then a feature about a tunnel that lights up when the sun is at a certain angle one day a year.

Uh-huh.

Uh-huh.

After Corbyn mentioned that he once lived near the tunnel, One Show host Alex Jones said this:

And Corbyn basically gave the best summary of The One Show I have ever seen in my life.

With that logic, this actual quiz happened.

Yep.

Yep.

Here is a detailed breakdown of where two out of the three manhole covers are from, by the hosts.

"That's a Thomas Crapper manhole."

"This manhole, all the way from Kyoto in Japan."

What is going on?

Every time Corbyn chose a manhole cover, it would open to reveal a thing about Corbyn's life. We only had time for two manhole covers.

After the Japanese manhole cover allotment chat, Corbyn then gave the hosts a present.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Corbyn was then thanked for being interviewed on the show. Then the presenters introduced a feature on stone-stacking, which led Ore to say this to Corbyn.

But when the feature finished and we returned to the studio Corbyn was nowhere to be seen.

Just nine days till the election, everyone.
