It has become a favoured accessory of the modern political leader; the personal trainer. David Cameron is often spotted jogging around with his fitness coach, who also works for comedians James Corden and Michael McIntyre. Even Gordon Brown had one by his side to keep him in, er, peak physical shape.
Now my colleague James Crabtree has revealed that Ed Miliband has hired a personal trainer to get him into shape. It will be interesting to see how this pans out for Miliband, who – up til now – hasn’t shown much aptitude in the sporting sphere.
Note: I’ve been asked to clarify that the trio in the photo are Cameron’s friends, not angry members of the public.
