The Tory MP took a moment during his LBC show to display his second ballot paper from the Tory leadership race.

He said it was a "genuine ballot paper," but it was a "blank one."

Explaining why he had to Jacob said: "I belong to two Conservative associations, one in Somerset and one in London. And I therefore got two ballot papers."
