Jeremy Corbyn has held his seat of Islington North, where he has been MP since 1983, holding off the Labour challenge.

The former Labour leader was standing as an Independent candidate after being kicked out of the party.

Mr Corbyn secured another term as Islington North MP, beating Labour candidate Praful Nargund into second place.

Mr Corbyn collected 24,120 votes, compared to Mr Nargund's 16,873, winning a majority of more than 7,000.

Exit Poll predicts Labour landslide

Despite Jeremy Corbyn's victory, Labour is still expected to secure a landslide victory at the General Election, with the Exit Poll predicting Sir Keir Starmer's party will win more than 400 seats.

Sir Keir Starmer will be the next Prime Minister according to the exit poll, which predicts Labour will win 410 seats at the election.

A party needs 326 seats to hold a majority in Parliament.

The second largest party is expected to be the Conservative with 131 seats, while the Lib Dems will be the third largest party at Westminster with 61 seats.

Reform are expected to pick up 13 seats according to the exit poll, while the SNP in Scotland are predicted to return 10 MPs to Westminster.

What is an Exit Poll?

The exit poll is a way of predicting what may happen in a general election, revealed after voting has concluded but before results are counted.

Exit polls take place at around 144 polling stations across the UK and the information then is used to predict the result of the election.

It involves asking tens of thousands to fill in a private ballot after they voted to get an indication of how they voted in the actual election.

Participating polling stations are usually chosen because they are considered to be demographically representative of the UK as a whole, with a mixture of rural and urban seats selected, and a number of marginal seats also chosen.
