Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn face tough questions on live TV

"It isn't a question of what it's worth paying to get out; it's a question of what is going to be the right deal for us in leaving the European Union which will stop us from having to pay huge sums of money into the European Union every year", she said.

"I think you have to".

Responding to criticism from presenter Alex Jones of the state of the hedge at his Islington home, he said: "You have got to let the plants grow a bit, then you prune them back".

Jeremy Corbyn faced lengthy questioning on foreign policy and security, defending his claim that the killing of Osama bin Laden was a "tragedy" because the al-Qaeda chief should have been put on trial.

"This country is badly divided between the richest and the poorest", the Labour leader replied, asking the man whether he was "happy" that children were going to school hungry and being taught in "supersized" classes.

Answering questions on the interview after launching Labour's race and faith manifesto in Watford, Mr Corbyn said: "I didn't have the exact figure in front of me, so I was unable to answer that question, for which obviously I apologise".

She was given a tough time over her plans to reform social care but performed best on Brexit as audience members applauded her commitment to walk away from talks without a deal rather than accept a bad one.

There were 239,700 tweets sent about Mr Corbyn - compared with 107,800 for the Prime Minister - over the 90-minute period, during which the pair were questioned by a studio audience and Jeremy Paxman.

Mrs May faced questions on controversial social plans, cuts to the police and health spending in England, and was challenged over whether her boasting about being called a "bloody hard woman" risked returning the Tories to the "nasty party" image which she fought against in the past.

While Corbyn insisted he would "make sure there's a deal" with the European Union before the United Kingdom leaves the bloc, May said she was "prepared to walk out".

Because I am clear about the instruction I have been given, clear about what needs to be done, and ready to get on with the job on day one - while Jeremy Corbyn doesn't have the belief, the will or the plan to deliver Brexit.

He added: "You don't address these problems by ignoring them".

On immigration, Mr Corbyn refused to be drawn on what level it would be post-Brexit, only saying it would "probably" be no higher than at present.

Mr Corbyn defended journalists after Barnett said she was subjected to abuse online, some of which appeared to be anti-Semitic, with several Twitter users calling her a "Zionist". "Our Prime Minister has done that now in the third election and got nowhere near meeting that figure". The Prime Minister was grilled on her party's promises for the elderly - failing to give a satisfying answer on the so-called "dementia tax", and acknowledging that Scottish electors were able to vote to keep their own winter fuel payments without mentioning English voters, with no English parliament, having no such opportunity themselves.

"It is a hypothetical question", he said.
