Lesbian comic Sandi Toksvig has started a new political party in order to fight for equality.
The Danish-British comedian announced earlier this week she would be quitting the host role of BBC Radio 4's News Quiz after nine years.
'I have made jokes over and over again about politics and, do you know, this election I've had enough,' she said.
'And I have decided that instead of making jokes about it, I need to participate.'
She announced on BBC Radio 4 that the new political group will be called the Women's Equality Party.
