The Riches star Eddie Izzard is to join John Prescott in supporting the Labour party's campaign for the European elections in June. The news follows a stand-up gig last month by the gender-bending star at Manchester University to help raise campaign funds.
The actor told students: "You have to get people when they're young, and the more young people that get involved the better, just like Barack Obama's campaign.
"A lot of youth were involved in that so that was very exciting," says Eddie, who's been a member of the Labour`party since 1994.
