Mrs Long-Bailey told them: “Hey guys, we’re going to have to think of a new song you know. No pressure.”

She was asked why Labour had failed with voters, returning their worst electoral result since 1935.

Mrs Long-Bailey said: “I think for me we had some fantastic policies, I know because I helped write some of them, and really the message didn’t resonate with our voters.

“And what we should have been talking about is aspiration.

“And we didn’t say that. We didn’t match that with a message of aspiration.

“We want an economy where everyone does well.”

All five candidates will appear at the event on Saturday to mark the start of their hustings tour around the UK.

Events are planned in cities including Durham, Bristol, Cardiff, Nottingham, Glasgow and London, as well as in the West Midlands and Bedford.

The result of the contest will be announced on April 4.
