In case you somehow missed it, last night saw Channel 4 launch their version of The Great British Bake Off after poaching it from the BBC last year in a highly controversial move.
Despite Bake Off fans being apprehensive about Channel 4’s new hosts, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig, and judge, Prue Leith, it was widely acclaimed by viewers and critics, attracting 6.5million viewers.
And one of those viewers appears to have been Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who took to Instagram to share his own personal jam recipe with his followers in honour of Bake Off’s launch.
Posting last night, the official @UKLabour social media page wrote: “Did you watch #GBBO this evening? For all you bakers out there, behold – Jeremy’s own jam recipe!
“We’ve tasted it and it’s a showstopper for sure.”
The image detailed the ingredients and instructions for Jeremy’s blackberry jam alongside the hashtag: ‘#ForTheBerry’, a Mary Berry rework of Labour’s slogan “For the many”.

Jeremy regrammed the image onto his official Instagram page, and his followers were left impressed by the move as they took to Twitter to share their reaction:

Jeremy Corbyn has published his own jam recipe. Good grief, I love this old reformist man more than I should.

This isn’t the first time that Jeremy has opened up about his TV viewing habits, previously sending Love Island fans into a tizzy when he admitted that he wanted fan favourite Marcel to win the ITV2 reality show.
Following this summer’s election, Jeremy also confessed that he planned to relax by catching up on all of the EastEnders’ episodes that he’d missed during the campaign.
