She’ll stand in the London seat of Kensington which Labour took in 2017 from the Conservatives with a miniscule majority of 20 votes.

Ms Aston is one of 635 candidates the Brexit Party has lined up in case there’s a snap general election.

The singer was a member of the middle-of-the-road group that won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981 with Making Your Mind Up.

She said: “I used to live in Kensington and it still feels like home.

“I want to stand for the Brexit Party and fight to uphold democracy for the sake of the people.

“As an MP, I will work to rebuild trust and help the Brexit Party make the necessary reforms to unite the country after we break free of the European Union.”

Mr Farage said his party is ready to stand “in every seat” against the Conservatives unless Boris Johnson changes tack and pursues a No Deal Brexit.

Mr Farage said: “If he’s prepared to do the right thing for the independence of this country, then we would put country before party and do the right thing.

“We would be prepared to work with him, perhaps in the form of a non-aggression pact at the general election.”
