The Labour leader’s eyewear appeared to be askew as he debated with the Prime Minister on ITV tonight, ahead of next month’s election.

And the public were quick to take note, flocking to Twitter to share their confusion.

One person wrote: ‘Can they just straighten Corbyn’s spectacles during the break so I can focus on what he’s saying rather than being distracted by his glasses being wonky?’
Another said: ‘Watching this on catchup, and I know it’s not the most pressing question, but what’s going on with Corbyn’s glasses?’
While a third joked: ‘Corbyn’s glasses have already left the EU.’
Joke Twitter accounts in the name of the glasses even popped up, shortly after the debate aired.
Corbyn’s wonky glasses, Jeremy Corbyn’s Glasses and Corbyn’s Squinty Glasses were just some of the accounts created during the debate.
The debate itself was a heated affair, with the two leaders exchanging barbs throughout the night.
Mr Johnson lashed out at Mr Corbyn for ‘absurd dither and delay’ over Brexit, while the Labour leader insisted he was offering ‘real change’.
Mr Corbyn said: ‘This election gives you a real choice about your future – the future of your community and of our country.
‘Labour is offering real change and real hope.’
He added that the Conservatives have ‘failed’ on the economy, on the climate crisis, the NHS and Brexit.
The Prime Minister said a vote for the Tories is a vote to ‘get Brexit done’.
He added: ‘If you vote for us, we have a deal that is ready to go. Approved by every one of the 635 Conservatives candidates standing at this election.
‘As soon as we can get that deal through Parliament, as we can in the next few weeks, we can get on with the people’s priorities.’
