David Cameron: I have onesie envy

Simon Garner

Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed that he does not own a onesie, unlike his deputy, Nick Clegg, but added that he is "jealous" of the ones his children have.

Mr Cameron was asked if he had one of the popular all-in-one leisure suits after Mr Clegg admitted being given one during a radio phone-in last week.

Discussing Britain's position in the EU on ITV's 'Daybreak', Mr Cameron broke off to reveal he had not joined in with the trend for onesies, which has seen grown men and women wearing the romper outfits.

He said: "My children have onesies. I often say that I'm very jealous that they didn't get me one."

Last week Mr Clegg told London's LBC 97.3 radio that he had been given a "big green onesie" in Sheffield but said he had not worn it and it was still in its packaging.

Mr Cameron also told interviewer Lorraine Kelly he thought it likely that a politician would make an appearance on much-derided TV show 'Splash' before long. The ITV game show asks celebrities to jump off diving boards - scoring them for their efforts.

Mr Cameron said: "I’m sure you can always find a politician - if there’s publicity involved you will always find one who will be prepared to do it. I’ve got a few people I could probably volunteer. Depends how high the diving board is."
