Rishi Sunak has revealed his favourite song is Southampton FC anthem 'When The Saints Go Marching In'.

Born and bred in Southampton, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was asked on Monday what he considers to be his favourite tune.

On the campaign trail ahead of next month's general election, he was questioned by a girls’ team at Wantage Town FC, made up of players between 12 and 15 years old.

Sunak told the team his favourite song was ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’ – Saints' widely renowned anthem.

This comes as Saints beat Leeds in the Championship Play Off Final last Sunday to secure their spot in the Premier League next season.

He added he was currently “slowly getting into” country music, revealing he was listening to The Cowboy In Me by Tim McGraw, which he first heard in the hit US television series Yellowstone.

“I definitely cannot sing it,” he added when faced with encouragement for a solo from the team, telling them he was saving his voice for ITV’s election debate against the Labour leader, Sir Kier Starmer.

The PM also spoke about how Taylor Swift featured in his listening, days after telling reports he probably did not meet the bar to be considered a ‘Swiftie’ – the term used to categorise a fan of Swift’s music.

Several of the girls present told him they would be going to Swift’s upcoming concerts, part of the pop star’s Eras Tour.

The girls also took the opportunity to ask other burning questions they had about the PM during their meetup.

This included his favourite Nando’s order, which he revealed was a half chicken, medium spiced, with chips and broccoli, adding: “It’s good broccoli.”

The Prime Minister said he also likes to “mix it up” sometimes and get boneless chicken thighs.

He also told the team he enjoyed batting at cricket nets when he had the opportunity, after he was asked about his sporting endeavours.

One of the more bizarre questions Sunak was asked was he ever wandered the corridors of No 10 Downing Street in his pyjamas, to which he jokingly replied: “When no one is looking, I do.”
