While Starmer said he was sticking to his rule of not eating on camera, Sarwar was happy to give the sweet treat a try.

The two leaders were on a visit to Siemens at Cambuslang with UK Shadow Chancellor, Rachel Reeves, where they met with apprentices.

During the visit, a table of cakes, and treats including the deep-fried mars bar, was laid on for the guests to enjoy.

Starmer however declined when asked if he would give it a try.

He said: “When I first became Labour deputy leader, I was given very good advice, which is never eat on camera and I’m not going to break that advice today.”

Sarwar, a former NHS dentist added: “And I’ve been giving him dental advice as well about reducing the sugar in his diet.”

Sarwar however broke his own advice and said he would give it a try.

He said: “It’s like when you were a kid and eating your mum’s pakora then eating chocolate straight after.”
