She added: "Given I was the only commentator to call the outcome of the election, I am now doing the same for Labour.

Hopkins said she was "suspicious" of Liz Kendall, adding: "It just isn't very British to say you want to win something.

"You should skulk reluctantly into the spotlight waiting to be asked or flattered into standing."

She described the now former leadership contenderChuka Umunna as the "millionaire playboy, City lawyer-turned-MP who once asked 'is it me or is most of the West End full of trash and C-list wannabes?'"

She added: "He may not be quite what voters up north expect."
