A shocking snap General Election was announced on Tuesday morning by Prime Minister Theresa May.

If Parliament decides to back proposal it means a 51 day countdown has officially begun before the nation goes to the polls on 8 June. 

Here's how MPs are reacting to the news - some welcome it with open arms, some have decried it and others have, unsurprisingly, taken the opportunity to poke fun at Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn:

 

Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron

 

Harriet Harman Labour MP for Camberwell & Peckham

 

Lord Ashcroft

 

 

Steve McCabe, Labour MP for Birmingham

 

Louise Haigh, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley

 

David Davies, Conservative MP for Monmouth

 

Anna Soubry Conservative MP for Broxtowe

 

Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland

 

Johnny Mercer, Conservative MP for Plymouth

 

David Cameron, former PM

 

Callum McCaig, Scottish National Party MP for Aberdeen South
