Glenda Jackson has come out fighting for Theresa May, saying she ‘loves’ the Prime Minister – while warning that Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour is ‘crazed’.

Despite being a lifelong critic of the Tories, the double Oscar-winning actress and former Labour MP, 82, praised Mrs May’s Brexit tenacity.

Describing the Prime Minister’s critics as ‘disgraceful’, she said: ‘There she is, slogging away, God love her.

‘I’m a big admirer of her and I think the way she’s been treated is utterly disgraceful. I don’t only mean by her own party. I’ve certainly admired her in the way she has handled herself over Brexit, yes.

‘I do admire her for her tenacity, trying to deliver the referendum result to the people of our country, even though I disapproved of it.

‘She tries to bring together two opposing sides, who find it very hard to tolerate each other, at the same time as having to deal with 27 other countries.’ Jackson, who starred in Women In Love and Elizabeth R before going on to become an MP for 23 years, also branded the idea of a second referendum as ‘absurd’, adding: ‘What’s to stop people then saying, “Well, let’s have a third?”’

Asked how she would fix Labour, she told The Guardian: ‘I’d ask someone to explain to me what we’re doing. Anybody, please, tell me what are we doing? It’s crazed.’
