Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper were last night accused of a ‘lasagne-gate’ dinner party plot to undermine Labour leader Ed Miliband.


The husband-and-wife Labour frontbench duo have each been tipped to succeed the embattled party leader if he is forced to resign before the next Election.


They have been wining and dining hand-picked Labour MPs at their London home and in Westminster.

But critics have accused them of disloyalty, claiming that they are attempting to build up their own power base ready to make a leadership challenge.
