The former Manchester United captain, 46, has been a fierce critic of Boris Johnson’s Conservative Government.

Confirming his decision to join the party, the ex-England defender turned pundit and businessman, pictured, said: ‘I do believe that we need a progressive Labour Party, but one that actually not just looks after the Left side; it has to come towards the centre.’

Sharing the news on social media, Shadow Cabinet minister Lucy Powell said she was ‘very pleased’ Neville had ‘finally’ decided to join Labour.

She also suggested that he may have a political career in store. 

But speaking to the BBC’s Political Thinking podcast, Neville said he was worried about getting ‘eaten alive’ in Westminster.
