It looks like his successor Ed Miliband may have found his slightly earlier in the campaign with this Absolute Radio interview.
The Labour leader joined host Geoff Lloyd for a 15 minute chat that has been widely praised on social media - even by a former Lib Dem special adviser.
During the interview Miliband busted some myths: he doesn't in fact own a Blue Peter badge, he and David didn't sleep in bunk beds and he called his parents 'mum' and 'dad' as a child rather than by their first names.
Miliband also defended his decision to run against his brother David in the Labour leader contest in 2010, saying:
We offer different things to the Labour party. I was a person who thought we needed to move on from New Labour and I ran for the same reasons that I'm running for prime minister now. I think the country's unfair - it works for the richest and doesn’t work for most people. We've got to change that so we put everyday people, working people, first.
