The Labour leader came under fire after he attempted to dodge a Brexit question on the party’s stance over Article 50.
Speaking on Sophy Ridge on Sunday, 67-year-old Jeremy Corbyn struggled to reveal how Labour MPs would vote when the Prime Minister triggers Article 50.
Theresa May is planning to trigger Article 50 at the end of March, however is waiting for a Supreme Court decision to see whether MPs will need to vote before she can activate it.
Mr Corbyn has suggested he would be asking Labour MPs to vote in favour of Article 50, but struggled to openly admit it in the interview.
Ridge simply asked the Labour leader: “So if things are going to be as bad as you portray them as, are you willing to whip your MPs to support Article 50?”

Mr Corbyn then struggled to give a definitive answer before the Sky News presenter was forced to ask him again.
He replied: “What we’re saying is we will not block Article 50. The Bill, we don’t know when it’s going to come, but listen we’ve got the Supreme Court decision imminently.
“And look it’s quite interesting isn’t it the government is being challenged”.
The Labour politician was cut off by Ridge as she pushed for an answer on what the opposition MPs will be asked to vote for in that particular circumstance.
She said: “So does that mean you’re whipping or not?”

I will ask Labour MPs to respect the result of the referendum
Mr Corbyn replied again without explaining which way his MPs would be voting as he continued to express how successful Labour were in insuring MPs get a vote before the Brexit deal is finalised.
He said: “The government’s being challenged in Supreme Court on whether of not it should consult parliament or not.
“We have forced them into a position where they have said that parliament will finally get a vote on all these issues.
“We will not block Article 50 but we will seek to amend the bill and we are consulting on amendments to the bill which will include issues on rights, on protections and on market access.”

For a third time, the host was forced to ask again whether the Labour leader would whip MPs into supporting the triggering of Article 50, or not.
Eventually the leader confirmed with some clarity how he would ask his MPs to vote if the triggering of Article 50 goes through Parliament.
He said: “I will ask Labour MPs to respect the result of the referendum, and allow Article 50 to be opened so we start that two year, probably longer period of negotiation.”
This announcement came from Mr Corbyn as 44 Labour MPs have written to the Prime Minister condemning her plans to pull Britain out of the single market.
