With just hours before the polls close, it will be a nail-biting conclusion to one of the most fascinating electoral contests in recent memory. 

In the Blue corner, Theresa May who called the snap polls in April telling the nation she needed a more commanding mandate for Brexit negotiations. 'Strong and Stable' was the PM's campaign mantra but a series of missteps, including the U-turn on the Conservative's social care policy, the three recent and tragic terror attacks and the no-show during the leaders' debate raised some serious questions about Mrs May and her party. 

Meanwhile - across the political aisle in the Red corner is Labour's Jeremy Corbyn. Targeted by vast swathes of the media and even critics within his own party, Corbyn could be the ultimate Comeback Kid with polls narrowing since Theresa May opted to take Britain to the polls. With a hard-hitting manifesto that has carved a significant gulf of difference between the main political parties, Corbyn has given over 49 million voters a real choice.
