The MP for Batley & Spen has asked people to text her after her number was accidentally leaked on This Morning.

Tracy Brabin appeared on the daytime show to answer questions on her political career, the cornavirus pandemic and the controversial £10,000 working from home cash grant.

Hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were confused when the politician received a high number of calls throughout the interview.

But it later turned out her number had been cast live on air.

The MP said: "My phone number was posted on screen and I’ve been inundated so will have to change my number. Please TEXT."

This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes has apologised for the blunder on the show, telling viewers: "There is something I want to refer to, a quick word about an item in the programme at the start of the programme today.

"It was an interview with the Labour MP Tracy Brabin, and some of you will have noticed a technical error during that transmission and we want to say sincere regret and we are very sorry to Tracy for any stress or trouble that that may have caused."
