Nigel Farage should be excluded from the television debates before the general election next year, Ed Miliband has said.

As Nick Clegg licked his wounds following his second consecutive defeat at the hands of the Ukip leader in their televised debate on the EU, Miliband called for a repeat of the debates involving the three main party leaders in 2010.

Asked during an appearance at the Guardian whether he would include Farage in the debates if he were in charge of drawing up the rules, the Labour leader said: "No. Look, I think the format we had last time with parties that have representation in parliament is a good format. In the end it is for the broadcasters to decide who they invite. They have got their own rules and they have got to follow their rules. I look forward to debating David Cameron. I am not that interested in Nigel Farage. I care about debating David Cameron."
