Esther Rantzen fails in bid to become an MP

Friday May 7, 2010

Celebrity parliamentary candidate Esther Rantzen has suffered defeat in her attempt to win a seat at Westminster.

The former That's Life star received just 1,872 votes, as one of a number of independents trying to win the Labour seat of Luton South that had been previously held by the disgraced MP Margaret Moran.

"You have to go with the way the voters choose", said Esther, who insists she does not regret standing.

"These have been the most fascinating, rewarding, inspiring years of my life," she adds.
