Wolverhampton South East has been safe Labour territory for decades and has been held by the party since its creation in 1974. Current MP Pat McFadden has represented the constituency since 2005 and is one of Labour's major players these days, helping to lead Keir Starmer's election campaign.

It would be a major surprise were anything else but a comfortable victory for Mr McFadden to happen here in a constituency where he remains a popular figure. He's been around long enough he worked in the last Labour Government.

Mr McFadden even held the seat in 2019 when the other two in Wolverhampton fell to the Conservatives as Labour's 'red wall' crumbled - though it was a close run thing, surviving with a majority of just 1,235. But with Labour ahead in the polls this time, no surprises are expected. Boundary changes mean some voters previously in Walsall constituencies now come under Wolverhampton South East.
