Stand-up comedian Eddie Izzard donned his glad rags and met with residents in Willesden Green in support of Labour’s campaign to win the Brent Central seat in next month’s general election

Dressed in a women’s blazer, heels and bright red nail polish, the funny man urged crowds of commuters at Willesden Green station to get behind Labour candidate Dawn Butler’s campaign to be elected on 7 May.

The pair also visited a number of local shops, including the Gourmet cake shop and The Social bar and Star dry cleaners in Walm Lane.

The comic actor, who is known for cross-dressing, posed for ‘selfies’ with fans and signed autographs whilst handing our leaflets encouraging people to vote.

Izzard,53, said: “ I joined the Labour Party in 1995 and I’ve been an activist since 2008 because I believe you get a fairer society under Labour.”

“I believe if we fight like crazy, and we put forward our ideas we can win this seat.”
